Here at Riverwatch Farm, our beloved goats are part of our family! They are so much more than just milk machines, They are our pets, and we love them! While we respect the different philosophies and approaches to herd management, we choose to bottle raise our kids for a number of reasons such as the safety and friendliness of our kids, and the udder health of our does. Our herd is disease free, and tested annually. Biosecurity plays a big role in our practices here! We are committed to making sure that our herd remains a clean herd.
