Tallulah being...well, a goat :)

We raise a small herd of about 12-16 American & French Alpines (and a Lamancha doe mixed in). All of our goats are known by name, and we try to take our animals to several different ADGA sanctioned shows every year! Because we try to keep our herd relatively small, we have several doelings and sometimes dry yearlings available each spring. If you're ever interested in purchasing a goat or would like to visit us, please don't hesitate to text 708-582-0180 for more information!

Farm Terms & Financing

Welcome To Jameks Farm!

In 2012, a 4-H leader who had a farm of her own let us visit and showed us her animals, including her herd of ADGA registered dairy goats - and the rest is history. After leasing, raising, and showing our 4-H leader's animals for several years, we finally bought 5 acres of our own in April 2016. We now have over 100 animals, and are devoted to giving them the best lives possible. Our motto is: "Learning, Doing, Sharing."
