Goats and Karakachan dogs
Swallowfield Farm has been raising crossbred meat goats for market since 2000. We have selected for quality mothers that each raise two kids on pasture and are extremely parasite resistant. The Bulgarian Karakachans have been our livestock guardian breed of choice since the beginning and have saved countless lives and stress. Our current dog, JJ, is 3 and lives out with the goats 24/7. He loves them but is also friendly with people and our other dogs- this has not been the case with our previous livestock guardian dogs. We often have doe kids for sale late summer before they all go to the market, and occasionally have bred does for sale as well. They are Nubian/Boer/Kiko and Myotonic crosses.
