My peeps farm is a proud member of the Fields of Gold Farm Trail, the American Goat Society, and the American Dairy Goat Association...
Welcome to our farm! We are located in Waynesboro along the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. We are blessed with a 10-acre farm where we spend lots of time enjoying and caring for our Nigerian Dwarf goats and other critters (aka peeps).
While living in Scottsdale Arizona, we dreamed about owning a farm near our family and living the country life. With the goodness of God, our dreams came true! My husband George grew up around farming but all this stuff has been new to me. I've always loved a new challenge (and getting my hands dirty!). I quit my corporate marketing career to become a farmgirl...I think of it as "corporate gone country". I chuckle thinking about how my favorite stores used to be Neimans and Nordstorms and now they are Tractor Supply and the Farm Bureau! The suits and heels have been retired to the basement and I hardly even wear mascara anymore. Now you will find me in a ball cap and boots doing something around the farm -- you know the saying, "there is always something to do on the farm", well it's true!
We have registered Nigerian Dwarf goats, chickens, guinea hens, barn cats, and two amazing livestock guardian dogs. All of our animals get loving care and the best quality feed we can find -- it helps that we live close to an organic feed producer! We raise heritage breed chickens on pasture for eggs and meat. We buy our beef from our neighbor who raises lowline angus on pasture and my husband harvests one to two pigs a year. We also breed dwarf nigerian goats for the incredible benefits of goat's milk -- the best milk and cheese ever! Our goat kids are dam raised so they get the awesome nutrition of their mother's milk and learn about foraging and drinking out of a water bucket from their dams. At the same time, we highly socialize our goat kids so they are super friendly. This is turn creates strong healthy kids ready for their future homes. We offer a limited number of our goat kids each year so make sure you contact us and secure a reservation! We take pride in offering quality friendly goats at reasonable prices.
We named the farm "my peeps" to not only represent our animal peeps but to let our friend peeps know that it's their place too! Everyone is welcome. My Peeps Farm is a place to grow, share, and be thankful.
Have a blessed day!
Cinda and George
We raise Black Australorp heritage breed chickens on pasture/forest. They are great for both eggs and meat. They are slow growing heritage breed chickens that love to forage...the way Mother Nature intended them to be. They are also hardy in both cold and warm climates. Did you know that pastured eggs are the highest quality there are? Most egg sellers that claim "free range" or "cage free" cannot claim "pastured". Our pastured chickens live outside and have full access to nature at its best along with a supplemental diet of non-GMO, Soy-Free, locally milled layer feed (50% organic). They have lots of fresh grass and can scratch the earth for worms, bugs, grubs to satisfy their natural need for animal protein.
Pastured chickens can also take natural dust baths to keep themselves clean with plenty of space to run around and socialize with the flock (including me!). They get clean fresh air to breathe and healthy sunshine for optimal health.
Pastured egg benefits* (as compared to most supermarket eggs):
1/3 less cholesterol
1/4 less saturated fat
2/3 more vitamin A
4 to 6 times more vitamin D
2 times more omega-3 fatty acid
3 times more vitamin E
7 times more beta carotene
