Goat details

Our approach to raising Nigerian dwarf goats and Nubian goats is rooted in our commitment to sustainable farming and animal welfare. We strive to create a nurturing environment where our goats can thrive. We intentionally keep our goat herd small. This ensures that our natural grazing areas never get over exhausted.

No confinement and lots of room to play

Currently, our goats have the privilege of approximately 2-3 acres of carefully fenced pasture at any given time. At TnF Farms, we rotate our animals through pastures so there’s always something great to eat and the vegetation gets an opportunity to grow back. These areas includes a mix of open field, shaded forested, and the serenity of a creek bottom where they can roam freely. This diverse environment offers them ample space to run, explore, and engage in their natural behaviors.

Since they are active and curious by nature, we have old playground equipment for them to climb and jump on. Our young goats love the adventurous playgrounds. We keep shelters are thoughtfully placed throughout our rotations. This gives all of our livestock comfortable retreats to seek relief from surprise rain and to get a break from the sun.

Making sure everyone is happy and healthy

We prioritize the health of all our livestock through regular veterinary maintenance. Ensuring that they receive the necessary care to thrive. Our commitment to ethical and sustainable farming practices extends to our animal healthcare. Absolutely no hormones ever and antibiotics only when necessary.

To keep our goats comfortable, we mist them with essential oils. This helps deter insects and provides them with a more enjoyable living experience while avoiding the use of harsh chemical repellents.

Nigerian Dwarfs are affectionate Nubian goats are sweethearts

Perhaps one of the most endearing aspects of our goats is their regular interaction with people. They are not only curious but also affectionate. Often displaying a genuine fondness for human company. Many of our Nigerians enjoy sitting in laps. While the Nubians love following us around and engaging in gentle interactions. This further underscores their friendly and sociable nature.

At TnF Farms, we take immense pride in providing our goats with an environment where they can lead healthy, contented lives. Our approach to farming reflects our dedication to sustainability, animal welfare, and fostering a strong bond between humans and our beloved livestock.

Farm Animals Make Life Better

I am a frequent visitor to TnF Farms, usually about once a month for a few days. I have been visiting the last few years since Tim and Faith moved to Tallahassee to start their farm. I am no stranger to farm life, as I have had horses growing up, and I much prefer it over city living. During my visits, I help Faith with farm chores, lend a helping hand on projects, become a goat midwife, and get my much-needed farm fix. I have always had a deep connection with animals in general, but there’s just something inherently special about farm animals.


Goat Friendly Florida Trees

Florida’s diverse and warm climate provides an excellent opportunity for goat farmers to integrate fruit trees into their farms. When selecting fruit trees for a goat farm in Florida, it’s essential to consider not only the climate but also the nutritional benefits these trees can offer to the goats. Here’s a more in-depth look at some suitable fruit trees:


Should You Grow Ryegrass?

Beyond its role as a forage crop, rye grass plays a crucial role in environmental conservation. Its ability to prevent soil erosion, particularly on slopes or vulnerable terrain, has made it a preferred choice for cover cropping. As a cover crop, ryegrass forms a protective layer over the soil, reducing the risk of erosion and promoting soil health. Additionally, its quick growth makes it an effective ground cover in lawns and pastures, providing an aesthetically pleasing green carpet. Whether utilized for livestock feed, erosion control, or ornamental landscaping, ryegrass stands out as a resilient and adaptable grass species with multifaceted benefits.
