... where you've got to be kidding !
Our purebred and percentage Kiko does are bred to our 100% New Zealand Kiko buck with new kids to be on the ground beginning in March 2015.
It's not unusual for us to start kidding in late Fall through the Winter at all times of the day and in varying temperatures rarely presenting problems. Averaging 6-7 lbs each, they're off to a good start. Occasionally we will selectively stock a few purebred Boer to produce an American BoKi (50% Boer/ 50%Kiko) registered through the IKGA as a cross breed taking advantage of the positive traits of both these fantastic breeds. The IKGA's American Meatmaker (75% Kiko/25%Boer) kids are also produced at our farm.
This has been a strong year of goat sales as breeding stock. The demand has exceeded our supply for quality Kiko stock. We have a few doelings remaining from this year's kid crop and a couple of purebred bucklings.

You've found South Carolina's Kiko goat connection.
Our management goal is to produce a hardy, high weaning weight, commercial meat goat, requiring minimal intervention.
While our goats are primarily sold locally for meat consumption, we also produce a limited quantity of Kiko seed stock. A significant market also exists for goats as pets.
We produce Purebred and Percentage Kikos. We maintain up to 45 does, with a single Purebred Kiko buck as herd sire.
Realizing the value of hybrid vigor, our herd consists of both Kiko, Boer, and mixed goats; with purebred stock down to 50% bred stock. The resulting wean weights and average daily gain consistently outperform our typical purebred stock kids.
Our ranch consists of more than 60 acres of both pasture and woods, 15 acres are currently fenced which provides ample sources of browse and forage for the size of our goat herd. Supplemental feed for our herd is kept to a minimum, just enough to keep them conditioned when we say "whoo - c'mon goats!"
Our goats are all natural, forage/pasture raised, with minimal feed supplementation during pre- and post-parturition (kidding). Annual CD/T vaccinations for all, de-worming, and hoof trimming only as needed.
Our tattoo herd prefix is "BAK" for the National Kiko Registry and "BAKE" for the IKGA goat registry.
