Devil Goat Artemis
Artemis is a 5 year old Maremma Sheepdog whose favorite time of year is kidding season! She adores baby animals and children in particular, but strikes a fearsome pose when required.
We have twenty breeding LaMancha does and two LaMancha bucks that have been carefully selected. We adore LaManchas for their loving dispositions, the quantity and quality of their milk and their ability to milk for years on end without re-breeding! The perfect breed, and an Oregon native.
Seventeen adult Nigerian Dwarf does and two bucks call Devil Goat their home, including our very first pet goat, Doris. Nigerian Dwarf goats have the highest butterfat in their milk and make wonderful cheese. We like to keep our herd at least 40% ND when possible.
We raise Maremmas to protect our animals and farm and feel they are the best breed for the job! These big white dogs work day and night to keep our farm safe from predators and alert us to any danger that arises.
Jess is one half of the leadership of Devil Goat Farm. Her primary roles involve daily chores, assisting in all kiddings, business management and of course, cheesemaking. She's also an accountant, available for remote work!
