About Us

   

My name is Mandi Goad.  My family and I live in the Honey Creek community in Allardt, TN.  

We are a Christian, homeschooling family. We operate a small farm, where we raise Australian Shepherds and Nigerian Dwarfs.

Our dogs are all registered with both AKC and ASCA.  We start working with them from day 1!  Our goal is to raise well adjusted, intelligent puppies, that can compete in your favorite sport, do farm work, or simply be a child's best friend.  Please be patient with us while we make some needed changes to our Aussie program.  This past spring, I had the privelege of seeing an Aussie in his intended element.  He was working cattle and sheep.  It was a spectacular sight to behold.  I came home and started researching.  I knew that they had been bred to drive stock, but I never really looked into it that much.  I discovered that there are really two different Aussies out there: one that is larger and bulky with flowing coats more suited to shows and shall we say 'cleaner' sports; the other has a slighter build and usually a sleeker coat more suited to farming.  I love them all but we have decided to go back to their roots and we are learning how to use them with our goats and training them to work on our farm.  

All of our goats are ADGA registered.   Our goal is to raise quality milk goats with excellent conformation.  Our goats will walk on a lead and they are handled daily -- even the bucks!

We also make goat's milk soap with the milk from our herd and my artistic daughters have some creations of their own that they sell.  Soon you will be able to check out our 'Soaps and More' page for more info.
