We are lucky enough to have a small herd of pygmy goats located in Yorkshire. We started keeping a couple of wethers as pets in the beginning, then we were hooked and decided to start breeding. Our pygmy goats are owned by Katherine and James. Katherine is an experienced veterinary nurse and is always happy to offer support and advice in the care of pygmy goats.
Our pygmy goats are pets first and foremost and are well handled. They have been selected for their good character and colours. The Danefield pygmy goat herd is registered with The Pygmy Goat Club. The Pygmy Goat Club was formed in 1982 to protect the interests and improve the status of pygmy goats in Great Britain.
Pygmy goats make affectionate pets that are entertaining, cheeky and bundles of fun! They are easy to handle as they are small, friendly and enjoy human company. Wethers (castrated males) and nannies (females) make ideal pets, but should be kept in herds of two or more.
Our kids will normally be born in spring and can be ready for their new homes between 10 and 12 weeks, once they have been weaned.
Please feel free to contact us for further information. We are always happy to give advice.
