The term Spanish goat is a catch all term for a meat variety goat that does not fall into a specific breed category. The term Cashmere goat refers to an animal that produces cashmere fiber of a minimum 1.25 inch length and measuring up to 20 microns in diameter. As such, the term Spanish/Cashmere goat refers to a dual purpose animal that is raised for its meaty body type and it’s fiber production.

We have found this type of goat to be very healthy, hearty, fertile and easy to handle. They are intelligent and fairly docile animals who can be trained to a routine very quickly, yet are also highly adaptable to regular change with little or no stress. They are quick to determine what you are asking of them and can be easily maneuvered and handled by a lone shepherdess.


Our foundation goats have come from a wide genetic base which allows us to offer for sale, breeding groups that are potentially compatible for generations to come. We do not offer inferior animals for sale as breeding stock. Our fleece is tested annually and fiber data is recorded and available for most animals on their second and subsequent fleeces. Each year our best fleeces are saved for entry in fiber competitions. These animals have won ribbons and received many Honorable Mentions in stiff competition. Click here for results.
