Fresh from the Farm

Nestled in the rolling hills of the Shenandoah Valley just 5 minutes from my home, the Cupp Farm is where I've begun purchasing goat's milk for my handmade soaps.

Staunton VA farm

Welcome to T. Cupp Miniatures! Tammy showed me around the farm, where she and her husband raise Jersey cattle and Miniature Nubian goats, along with other animals and produce.

Obi is her newest Miniature Nubian goat who is providing milk until Tammy's other does give birth to kids in May, so I consider her "my" goat for now. :)

Miniature Nubians are a cross between the standard Nubian dairy goat and the Nigerian Dwarf.

You can see certain characteristics of the breeds manifested, particularly in their ears, as to whether they are floppy or sticking out.
