Goat Haven Farm

Tour the Farm

Meet the Herd





Welcome to Goat Haven Farm a family affair involved in raising and showing pet goats.

We are located in Middlesex, North Carolina, which is about 25 miles east of Raleigh. Our herd consists of four registered Pygmy Goats, three unregistered Pygmy Goats, an unregistered Nubian Goat and a half Arabian Horse. Other critters on the farm include; Chickens, Ducks and Geese. We also have three Dogs, three Cats and a Cockatiel.

We originally got interested in goats when someone suggested we get a goat to keep our horse company after we moved and she became lonely for her stable mates. Goats make terrific companions for horses, as they are both herd animals.

The saying "Get Your Goat" supposedly originated from the early horse racing days, where goats were kept with nervous race horses to keep them calm before the race, and if you wanted to beat the competition you would get their goat causing their horse to become agitated and unable to race.

We have had pet goats ever since that first scrub goat we got to keep our horse company. Goats make wonderful pets. We are involved in showing registered Pygmy goats. We have family memberships to the National Pygmy Goat Association NPGA and the North Carolina Pygmy Goat Club NCPGC.

I hope you enjoy your stay at Goat Haven Farm. Take a few minutes to Tour the Farm and Meet the Herd. We would love to hear from you. Send us an email at mavisbob@direcway.com.
