South African Boer Bok

Autumn Olive Farms is a family based operation in Augusta County. We have a dual focus model with a singular commitment to the health and wellness of the land, animal and the consumer. We raise the beautiful South African Boer Bok as an environmentally sound method to combat the invasive plant species problem while producing one of the finest and healthiest meats in the world right here in the Shenandoah Valley. The combination of the worlds premier, purpose bred and standardized meat goat with the fantastic forage base of invasive species here in the Valley provides a win-win situation for the land, its owner and the consumer.

The girls are getting ready to hit the road......

It has been a long hard winter and the girls are ready to hit the road.  Check out our Video link to see the girls practicing getting on and off the trailer. They are ready to do some serious defoliation on those relentless invasives that are taking over the Valley.  The Autumn Olive, Honeysuckle, Multi-flora Rose, Privet, Oriental Bittersweet, and Kudzu just to name a few don't stand a chance! 

They will be returning to the Frontier Culture Museum in a couple of weeks.  We will let you know so you can go by and welcome them back.  We will also be looking for volunteer Shepherds to help keep watch on the herd while they are there.  If you are interested please contact us. 

Save the date....We will be hosting a field day at the Museum on  Thursday, May 20th.  More details will be available in the next couple of weeks.
