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.

Stories from around the farm...

People keep telling us we need to write a book.   No one has called an offered us a book deal.  No time to write a book  anyways with over 200 animals to take care of everyday, so short stories on our blog will have to do.  We have quite a few of them as it is never a dull moment around here. Clay and Luke are the better writers and hopefully they will have time to write about some of the "characters" on our farm.  Until then, I (Linda) will share a few stories with you.  

I will have to say most all of our animals from the goats to the chickens to the dogs and even our one lonely cat all have their own individual personalities.  So you can imagine that with all of the animals this makes for some great stories.  Just wish we could put voices with each of them for you to hear.   Thank goodness they all don't "talk."  Nothing would ever get done!  

Visitors to our farm are amazed we can tell our goats apart.  It is not hard for us. They all actually do look different and we can even recognize them by their "bleats" without even seeing them.  

The first story will be about our only cat named Doug.  He has quite a story about how he showed up on our farm in NC.  I will have to write about it one day...
