Thistle Thickets Farm

Thistle Thickets Farm We have two locations: Poolesville, MD, and Panama City, FL. A pair of small family farms specializing in quality registered Dairy and Meat Goats.
(1)

First located in Boyds, Maryland, we have been raising registered dairy and meat goats since 2000—Boer, Oberhasli, Alpine, and recorded grade. In 2014, after part of the family moved to Panama City, FL but still dedicated to raising goats, we split our herd into two separate farms. Rather than have two names, two websites, and two competing brands, however, we decided to keep the same name, philosophy, and small, family-owned feel for the locations in Maryland and Florida. Our Mission: To raise healthy production animals. We raise animals who are resistant to internal parasites and are excellent producers. Our oberhaslis consistently place at the top of their class in the show ring. Our Boers are improving and place well in shows. We sell raw goat milk for animal consumption and have an Oberhasli stud buck available. We are also beginning to look at goat renting. We have tested our goats last in 2007 for CAE and CL, and all goats were found to be negative. Our kids are dam raised but are routinely cuddled when young so they make very friendly goats.

Selling two oberhasli does with kids. Both does are adga registered and up to date on vaccines. Opal has one red boer cross doeling (2/23). 400 for both. Obsidian (black oberhasli) has two boer cross kids, one male one female (3/15). 450 for all three.
