Thank you for your interest in our small herd of Alpines. We are located in Georgia about 50 miles north of Atlanta and 18 miles off I-75. Our first Alpines were purchased over 20 years ago as a project we could do as a family. Since that time, we have enjoyed exhibiting our animals in many local and state shows. In 2005, our farm gained the distinction of being the first to win the Georgia Farm Bureau Best GA Born, Bred, & Raised award twice (SGCH Tamara in 2002 & GCH Bright Eyes *M in 2005). We have attended six national shows with the latest being Louisville, KY, in 2010. Even though our herd is small, we have been competitive at the national level.

Due to our work schedule, we have selected animals that are hardy and trouble-free. We give all our animals reasonable care, but they are not pampered. They receive regular worming, Bar-Vac CD&T, and medicine for specific problems. We have never had CL abscesses in our herd. If they can't make it under our management conditions, they go. This system has resulted in a higher level of herd health and less problems for us. Our entire herd has tested negative for CAE at Washington State and recently UGA for the last fourteen years with the last test in February, 2013.
Our herd is certified and accredited brucellosis and TB free and although we no longer participate in the Scrapie Eradication Program, our herd attained Certified Scrapie Free status.  Because of our attention to herd health, WE DO NOT OFFER BUCK SERVICE.

All our kids are raised on a lamb bar simply for the fact that the kids are much easier to handle and show. Kids have access to alfalfa hay from the beginning and a starter ration containing deccox is introduced at approximately two weeks of age. Our does have access to a mixed grass pasture, alfalfa hay, mixed grass hay, and a commercially prepared grain ration. Protein blocks and baking soda are offered free choice the year round.

Our present herd carries the genetics of some of the top herds in the Alpine breed: Willow Run, Iron-Rod, Alpine-Valleys, Cherry Glen, Munchin'Hill, Hill-N-Holler, Nodaway, Milk-N-Honey, Sand-Dance, and Tempo Aquila. We are indeed fortunate to have had  SG+*Willow Run Ahren Rhett, son of four time National Champion, SGCH Willow Run Armand Rishona at our farm. Following Rhett in our herd were *B Alpine-Valleys Golden Oats, son of the 2006 Reserve National Champion, Iron-Rod Rhett Stetson+B Iron-Rod Sullivan Advance, and *B Hoanbu Freelance Profit, son of Elite sire SG++*B Tempo Aquila Freelance.  In 2012 we added 2 new bucks from Laurie Acton's herd in partnership with Angela Peevy. *B Tempo Aquila RR Living It Up is the son of the 2012 Reserve National Champion, Living Free, and sired by *B Redwood Hills Jazz Rimrock who is a son of the 2012 National Champion, SGCH Redwood Hills X-Rated Rima 11*M.  *B Tempo Aquila XSS Regal is the son of SGCH Tempo Aquila Rotini 5*M, 1st Place 5-6 Year Old @ 2012 National and daughter of the highest ever appraised Alpine, Tetrazzina at FS-94 (EEEE), who was the 2013 National Grand Champion. Regal is sired by Redwood Hills X Soul Searcher, an X-Rated son who is now working in Mark Baden's Olentangy herd. 

Since we must keep our herd small, prices are very reasonable starting at $250 for kids 4 weeks of age and under. Any kid not picked up by 4 weeks of age will be subject to an additional charge of $5 per day.  T
he majority of the kid crop will be available; however we reserve the right to retain any kid born. Bucks from first fresheners will not be offered until we have had the opportunity to thoroughly evaluate their dams. A deposit of $100 is required for each kid ordered. If the kid is not available or a suitable replacement cannot be found, your deposit will be refunded. Prices do not include health papers (usually $40), shipping crate, transportation to the airport, or shipping costs. Due to weight restrictions, kids need to be shipped when they are approximately 35-40 pounds. We have had good service from Delta & Continental out of Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. We welcome you to come to the farm to pick up your kid(s) so you can see our animals in person. Several milkers, mostly first fresheners, are usually available following kidding in the spring.

Thanks to those of you who have purchased animals from us in the past. We wish you the best of luck in the future. We will be happy to provide additional information on any of our animals upon request.
