Welcome to Kikobian Kinders

Mini-herd of quality registered Kinder goats in the foothills of the Southern Appalachians.

About Kikobian Kinders

Our goats are important members of our homestead, where we are working toward a simpler, sustainable, more self-reliant lifestyle. We've tried several breeds, but have found the mid-size, dual-purpose Kinder to be the perfect goat for a small family farm or homestead. They provide us with milk and dairy products, meat, manure, and kids. We view our goats as partners on the land, not pets, nor for production and profit. We usually have a half-dozen or so kids for sale every year, and occasionally an adult doe or buck.

Even though we are not focused solely on production, we take our responsibility to the Kinder Goat Breeders Association seriously. Even on a small scale, we work toward the Kinder breed standard, with the goal of producing breeding quality Kinders well suited for permaculture and sustainable farms and homesteads.

About Kinder Goats

Why are we so enthusiastic about Kinders? Being smaller than standard size goats they are more manageable and eat less. Being larger than the mini breeds, their height makes them easier to milk and their larger udder capacity means higher production. Kinders produce as well as standard-size goats.

Kinders are aseasonal breeders, meaning they breed year around. Multiple births are common. They produce rich, creamy milk with up to 7% butterfat. With higher than average milk solids, their milk is excellent for making cheese. In addition, they dress out at about 60% or more of their body weight for chevon. 

All this plus a great personality makes them a goat to consider.
