Land of Milk and Honey
Nestled between Gilroy's garlic and Morgan Hill's mushrooms, lies the land of milk and honey. Our farm raises ADGA registered Nubian Dairy Goats, Flemish Giant and Havana Rabbits, and is home to European Honey Bees. We offer luxurious goat milk soaps and lotions, local honey, blacksmithing, and a variety of other crafts.
Find us on Facebook!
Our bottlefed babies grow up to be well-adjusted beauties. We breed for high-well attached udders, good dairy quality, milk production, correctness of form, and lovable temperaments.
Goat Milk Soaps and Lotions are naturally soothing to the skin. The soaps are not drying and do not leave a residue, making them perfect for people with sensitive skin.
4/16/17 - Why can't they live forever? Though Kaitlyn seemed to be doing well after kidding on Friday, she suddenly took a turn today and passed quietly and quickly. We are devastated and will miss her. Her boys are still doing well. Kaitlyn has left quite a legacy and will live on in our hearts. :(
4/14/17 - More baby goats! Finally! We've been waiting and today Lucy graced us with two beautiful does while Kaitlyn has two handsome bucks. For more about their births, visit our Kidding Around page under the Goat tab.
3/26/17 - The chicks are here! This year we ordered Ameracaunas and Golden Laced Wyandotte chicks. They all arrived peeping away and ready to start life. They are all pullets and we are offering a few for sale and of course, we are retaining some for ourselves. For more info on our chicks, check out our Facebook page!
3/8/17 - Need a future herd sire? We are still waiting on some VERY round ladies to have their babies, but in the meantime, Raven's boy, Forest, is available! He is currently intact, but will be wethered soon if there is no interest in him as a buck. Check him out on our Goats For Sale page!
2/28/17 - Let the games begin! Raven, a veteran player on the team, kicked off our kidding season with twin mini-me's. She had one boy and one girl that look identical to her. Now some of you may remember last season we considered retirement after our over-achiever attempted quads while harboring a fantasic case of mastitis. We are happy to report, that she has come back strong this season with no problems. Stay tuned and see who will be next! Visit our Kidding Around page for more details.
10/11/16 - Mabie's Farm Fall Boutique Don't miss out on our Fall Boutique at the farm! We will be here with al of our wares along with our animals. Come see us before it gets too cold! Also, check out our show schedule at Soaps and Lotions For Sale.
6/22/16 - All of the babies are gone! Our last babies went home on Monday so the pasture is pretty quiet now. It is always bittersweet when they go to their new homes. We do miss them and are thankful for their new families who love them very much. If you missed out on this year's babies, we will be breeding again in the fall and will have babies again around March.
6/11/16 - Three kids left! Okay, I know you've heard that before, however we weren't expecting Lucy to surprise us with twins. For details on that, check out our Kidding Around page under goats. For details on which three kids are still available, check out our Goats -For Sale page.
6/11/16 - Breeding Bunnies! With the crazy weather we have had, breeding bunnies can be a challenge. We dont want to breed them on hot days because we don't want them to over heat. Also, if it has been hot, the buck's viable sperm count is low so there really isn't a point. Yesterday we were able to breed two of our Flemish does to our fine looking young buck. Keep your fingers crossed and we may have July bunny babies!
4/3/16 - Only three kids left! We have deposits on most of the kids, with only three girls left. Don't miss out! Our kids go fast.
3/31/16 - Kid pictures posted & Spring Boutique If you are looking for kid pictures, check out our Goats For Sale page under the Goats tab.

3/14/16 - Kidding season comes to a close With Lara kidding this afternoon, all of our does have given birth. Though we tried to breed Quinn, we don't believe she took. Lara finished off our season with twins. Our final kid count is 4 girls and 5 boys. Check out our Goats For Sale page to pick your next goat!
3/13/16 - Kids, kids, and more kids! This has been a busy weekend! Raven's two kids are doing well and growing fast. Her little girl is a big eater and has quite the independent streak while her boy loves to bounce everywhere.
Yesterday, Kaitlyn kidded with twins. Today was Airmid's turn, kidding with triplets totalling 16.5#s. The past two years she gave us triplet doelings and this year she had 2 doelings and 1 buckling. All of the babies and moms are doing well. Watch our goats for sale page for a chance to bring one of these babies home.
3/5/16 - Kidding Season has begun! Though we are happy to announce our start to kiding season, it could have been a little less eventful. Raven attempted to be an over-achiever which ended up with an emergency trip to the vet. Check out our kidding page to read more and watch for upcoming kids.
10/13/15 - Goat Breeding and Holiday Show Season begins. This year we decided to breed a little later than usual. We are currently breeding and are expecting March babies. Don't forget to let us know if you are interested in one of our goats as they do go quickly.

8/30/15 - What a busy summer! It is hard to believe that the summer is almost over, expecially when we are still getting temperatures over 100 degrees. We took our two retained doelings to our county fair where they took grand and reserve champion! We are gearing up for rabbit breeding and preparing for goat breeding at the end of September (February babies). Stay tuned for our show schedule where you may find our wares. In addition to our luxurious soaps and lotions, we will be adding a few more items to our line.
2/10/15 - The first boy of the season More baby goats! Lara kidded today with twins, one doeling and one buckling. This is also the first year that Gretel has been able to interact (supervised) with the babies (she is turning 2 this year). Gretel is doing very well with the little ones. Yeti, as usual, has taken it all in stride.
2/7/15 - More babies..Triplet girls! Airmid has decided to take after her mother, Autumn, and has started a trend of triplets. We couldn't get over the fact that she had three girls last year, and even more shocked that it was a repeat performance. We are just esstatic that mom and babies are doing well.
2/5/15 - Kaitlyn delivers first baby of the year Apparently Kaitlyn has little respect for all the hard work I put into schedules and calanders. Though she wasn't due for another week and a half, Kaitlyn delivered a stunning doeling today. Mom and baby are doing well. Way to go Kaitlyn! Make sure to check out our Kidding Around page for more details.
1/25/15 - UC Davis Goat Day Want to learn about goats? Want to know how we learned so much? UC Davis has an annual event to teach about goats. This year the focus is on milk production and food safety. Even if you have meat goats or just pet goats, it is a great way to learn more (they have other sessions than just dairy).
1/25/15 - Baby goat will soon be here! Time has a way of flying by. We bred our goats a little later this time, so we don't have any babes on the ground...yet. We are expecting our first batch of babies from Quinn, Kaitlyn, and Airmid by the beginning of March. Coming up in April, will be Lara. Last, but certainly not least, will be Raven in May. We had bred her earlier, but she didn't take. If you are interested in babies, get on our list now! If you are interested in a bucking, please let us know in advance. We will notify you when they are born. All buckling purchases must have a 50% deposit down by one week of age or they will be castrated and you will be placed at the end of the list.
11/6/14 - Busy show season! 'Tis the season for holiday shows. We have a full schedule where we will be selling numerous products including our soaps and lotions, marshmallow shooters, and more! Can't make it to a show? Make an appointment and pick up your favorite products at the farm.

7/3/14 - Our last babies go home We are officially out of goats for sale this year. Our last two wethers went to their new home this evening. We will still have plenty of bunnies as well as our wonderful farm products.
6/10/14 - Mabie's Farm Store launch! After several years of "I'm going to to our products online", we have finally done it! At the moment, the store offers our lotions. We promise it won't take years to post the rest of our inventory.
2/7/14 - Our First Freshener Kids First fresheners are always a wild-card when it comes to kidding. Usually things go well, though they seem a bit confused as to what happened. They also still need to learn the milking routine and their milking order (though shalt not mess with the order or the girls will be tempermental and tussle for the rest of the day). Lara, Merry's daughter, had an easy delivery, bringing a beautiful buckling and doeling into the world.
2/6/14 - More babies! Mornings are busy here. We have baby goats to feed, moms to be milked, bunnies, chickens, and dogs to be tended. While feeding bunnies, we were delighted to see that Natasha, our Flemish Giant has babies in the nest. She can be a bit finicky, so we will wait until tomorrow to count how many. A previous breeding between her and Krassney resulted in spectacular kits.
Just as dinner was ready, we noticed Quinn was giving birth. Though she has had a lot of twins in the past, this year she had a single buckling. He is adorable with his white belt. Luckily, with the change in the weather, he has Airmid's three girls to help keep him warm.
2/5/14 - A Sad Farewell & New Babies Our new year was rung in with tears. On December 31st, Merry went into labor early, way too early. After delivering two deceased kids and with a great deal of vet intervention to save her, Merry passed away in the afternoon on January 1st. I still stand in the pasture and look for her.
We were concerned about the rest of the herd with four more does left to kid. On January 29th, Airmid kidded in the afternoon with three beautiful babies...ALL GIRLS! Mom and babies are doing great. We are anxiously awaiting more babies and more girls returning to the milk parlour.
