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.

FOR SALE AND RECENT UPDATES
4/20/15: Finally finished kidding on Easter Sunday. We have 1 purebred buck, 4 purebred bucklings, 4 New Zealand bucklings, 3 New Zealand does, and 4 New Zealand doelings for sale. See links above. We also built a goat stand/livestock scale, and a new hay feeder. It has probably reduced our hay waste by 60-75%.
1/25/15: Kids have started to arrive as of Jan. 25, 2015. We only have 2 yearling bucks born Feb 2014, left to sale. They are shown on the Bucks for Sale page.
1/5/15: We had about 21 kids Winter, Feb./Mar/April 2014. We have sold all the does and doelings we plan to sale last year. Gambler's performance was outstanding in 2014, his kids wts. at 90 days were 61.5, 55.5, 51.5, 53.5, 56.6, 50, 48, 44, 43.5, 40, 38, at 90 days. 180 day wts. were: 60.5, 57, 57, 66.30, 57, 96, 67, 60.25, 66, 69, 61.5, 58.5 and 65 lbs.
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. 180 day weights are also included on most kids 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.
We have 4 pastures for rotational grazing now and looking at adding 2 more next year. I look forward to seeing green pastures from a distance, with little goats hopping all around.
We are still Animal Welfare Approved. 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.
