Nigerian Dwarf goats are great urban dairy goats for small homesteads, and they can even be kept in the city. I first got goats in 2012. My goal was to produce as much of my family’s dairy as possible. Nigerian Dwarf milk is delicious, and goats are great fun to keep and breed. If you have the space I highly recommend them!

I ended up selling my goats in 2016 because my goals for our property changed. Instead of producing as much of my family’s food as possible even if relying on purchased feeds, I am now more focused on creating self sustaining systems that produce food for our family. It’s a subtle difference in goals, but what it means right now is using the space where I was raising goats and storing purchased hay to produce more of our chicken, duck, and rabbit feed.
Nevertheless, here are some of my thoughts and things I’ve learned from keeping Nigerian Dwarf goats. I hope it helps you in your own goat adventures!
