Welcome to our small family farm in Southern California, Thorny Ranch.
We have Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats, chickens, citrus, avocado and vegetable beds.
News 03/04/2016 :
5 Nigerian Dwarf bucklings – wethered, for sale as pets and weed eaters. Must leave as pairs, or you must have goats already.
News 12/ 10/15: Prices on the eggs and fruit are suggested donations to cover chicken food and water.
Current produce available:
Baby it’s cold outside and the hens are not laying. I haven’t gotten desperate enough to mess with their natural cycle by putting a light on for them. Once they are done with the most epic molt of all time I may try to trick them into thinking the days are getting longer.
Eggs by the half dozen ($3.00)
Lemons, Mexican Limes, Grapefruit. ($10.00 full grocery sack)
Ripening for harvest soon : Persimmons
- Incubator is empty, if you want me to hatch some chicks for you I will be glad to give you an estimate for the service. You can have the chicks on day 1 after they have all hatched, or I can raise them for a few weeks for you until they can be outside at your home! Great for biosecurity and you don’t have to ship the babies across the country.
- Boarding: goats, dogs. If you need a place for your goats or dog to stay then let’s chat. Dogs must be non-reactive to cats, chickens and goats. They must enjoy other (big) dogs. We can talk about what vaccinations and health checks are needed before bringing a goat to stay. I do not offer boarding for chickens.
Current livestock available:
- Breeding schedule shows possible Nigerian Dwarf Goat babies due during the window of January 8 – February 19, 2016.
- Roosters: 2 so far, possibly more. Backyard mixes.
