Toggenburg goats are dairy (milk) goats. We have doelings and bucklings for sale in the spring and summer. We sell fertile chicken and duck hatching eggs most of the year.

We offer Thorvin Organic Kelp and Azomite Mineral Powder for your soil, farm animals and pets. They are good fertilizers high in trace minerals. Try Frontier dried comfrey root for making an herbal tea or poultice.

Recommendations for Farming and Self Sufficiency

We recommend using organic fertilizers in your garden and farmland. A good source for fertilizers such as Rock Phosphate, Azomite, Kelp, Dolomite Lime, Greensand, and Sulfate of Potash is Countryside Organics. We are not associated with them. We just like them. They are in Virginia. If you order 44 bags of 50 pounds each, they will send it by pallet. They have distributors that may be close to you.

They carry supplements for animals such as Brewers Yeast, Diatomeceous Earth (also good for storing grain), Redmond Salt, Alfalfa Meal and others. They sell organic animal feed for goats, sheep, swine, poultry, cattle, horse, llama, alpaca and rabbit. They sell whole organic grains/beans/seeds such as corn, oats, flaxseed, field peas, barley and wheat.
