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.

THE GOALS OF MAPLE MANOR FARMS
We are members of the International Kiko Goat Association, and the Southeastern Kiko Goat Association. We are founding members of the American Goat Federation. We believe Association membership has been helpful to us and we recommend others to join. 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
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. We have currently sold all the goats we plan to sale this year. All goats sold have health records, birth weights, 90 day weighs and 180 weights if not sold by then. 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 are excited about our new 16 ft horse trailer which is great for goats. This will make it easier to deliver & pick up goats we purchase. We bought 14 does and a new Herd Sire from Kikofest 2012 in Metropolis, Illinois. Most of the new goats are pictured. We had our first kids for our 2012/2013 kidding season on Nov 1 2012 and anticipate more kids through April 2013.
We have now been earned the Animal Welfare Approved Label. This takes alot of time and paperwork but I anticipate it will be worth it. It also lets others know we meet high standards on a consistent basis.
Based on the increase of our herd, we have purchased a new English Shepard "Stetson" to prepare for herding by next year when we divide up the back of our land.
