Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

Willow and I decided on the name Hackberry Woods.

Hackberry is the predominant species of tree in the goat area. We love the funny bark, the precious little berries, and the haphazard look of the foliage.

For nature nerds: Hackberry is native to Indiana and a lot of the Midwestern US; the small berries (or drupes) are edible in autumn; also goes by the names Sugarberry and Nettletree. The name Hackberry is from the Scottish "hagberry," meaning "marsh berry."

These adorable growths called "witches' brooms" can form due to mites and fungi.
