Welcome to Maple Manor Farms of Carthage NC (a breeder of kiko goats)
We have approximately 20 acres of wooded rolling hills including a creek with fresh running water that needed clearing. We did significant research on the best type of goat requiring low maintance and decided to go with Kikos, and we are now hooked. Kikos are classified as meat goats, but also have good milk production.

Our Sire 100% DNA Verified Triple registered, most kids are his this year.
We are members of the International Kiko Goat Association. It has provided experienced peers in the goat business, which have been a far more educational resource than any book. People are always ready to talk "goats". Call us sometime or drop by to see us, we love sharing conversation and knowledge about our goats and love to hear about other's goats as well.

FOR SALE AND RECENT UPDATES
We just finished the second side of our feeder area. It makes feeding easier, more sanitary and controls the bullies of the group. Check out pictures on the gallery page.
We had about 21 kids this winter, Feb./Mar/April 2014. We are selling some breeding age does since most kids have reached their 90 days. Gambler's performance has been outstanding. His first wave of kids were 61.5, 51.5, 53.5, 56.6, 48, 44, 41,40, 40 38 and 38 at 90 days. His second wave was 50, 43.5 and 55.5lbs.
Check out our tabs related to goats for sale. We have catagorized them, to make it easier for you to look for the type of goat you are interested in. All goats sold have birth weights, and 90 day weighs. Some have 180 day weights if not sold by then. All will have 2 CDT shots, a scrapie tag and will be microchiped. Most all kids are handled daily to assure they are tame and easy to handle in the future.
TOF Prospector from Twin Oak Farm in Florence South Carolina is now part of our herd. He is TOF Flake's nephew, has great weight gain and excellent, top of the line bloodlines. His kids will arrive Feb. 2015.
We are working on pastures this year, clearing most all the trees, putting more fence and planting in the spring and fall. I look forward to seeing green grass pastures from a distance with little goats hopping all around.
We are Animal Welfare Approved and just had our second annual audit. All went well, so we will continute to use the seal. This takes alot of time and paperwork, but I anticipate it will be worth it. It also lets others know we meet very high standards on a consistent basis.
