WELCOME TO DEAN HILL
About our farm.....
We purchased our farm in 2001 and are located in the rolling hill country of Middle Tennessee. At first we raised only cattle but, after several years of bush-hogging, we began to get serious about incorporating goats into our operations. Not only are goats an excellent means of clearing pasture land, the demand for goat meat has increased tremendously here in the United States as well. So, we restored and repaired some fencing, built and shored up existing barns, enlisted the aid of my mother-in-law (retired goat farmer extraordinaire) and researched goats and the different breeds available. In 2010, after much research and travel, we chose Kiko goats.
We purchased our first dozen Kiko goats and turned them loose in a pasture with enough grazing for ten times that many. We have since purchased many more, selectively culled the herd and added some from our own breeding program. At last count we are over fifty does and still growing. We have 100% New Zealands, purebreds and some commercial does as well. They are happy and growing and making war on weeds!
Whether you are looking for breeding stock, information on owning and caring for goats, or are just interested in life on the farm, we invite you to take a look around our site. If you have any questions or comments, please email us. We look forward to hearing from you and thanks for stopping by!

ROHO'S BIG DARLIN'
Our Big Darlin' is the largest doe we have ever laid our eyes on! Never has parasite problems or hoof issues. Did we mention she is big? This picture was taken on the road in front of the tobacco barn. No trick photography, she is flatfooted on the road eating off of a one ton flatbed.
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY
WILSON COUNTY FAIR AND BIRTHING BARN!!
In Middle Tennessee fairs don't get any bigger or better than the Wilson County Fair! With annual attendance rates over half a million each year, we were super excited to be asked to join with other livestock producers in bringing live births to the fair. Then COVID-19 became a going concern and most events were cancelled. Fortunately, the livestock shows and the birthing barn event are still a go! On 8 13 2020, the birthing barn and other livestock events will begin and run through Sunday the 23rd.
She came to us from Abandoned Dog Kikos in North Carolina and we have been so happy to call her ours!!
She and another doe originating here at Dean Hill were programmed to come in heat on March 22, 2020. August 20th will be 151 days from breeding. Knowing goats don't kid on a calendar schedule, rather on their own time, we are expecting kids between 8/16 and 8/25.
