 Welcome to Rocky Hollow!
Athens, Alabama







   Welcome to Rocky Hollow in Athens, Alabama! We are a minifarm located in a hidden hollow at the end of a country road. In addition to a small herd of milk goats, we have two sheep, four dogs, a flock of chickens and ducks, pigeons, and rabbits.







Around the Farm

   We manage our animals as naturally as possible, attempting to keep their immune systems strong by a healthy diet, low stress, a clean environment, and exercise.

Goats:
   We are trying to promote Nigerian Dwarfs as the wonderful little dairy goats they are. We plan to concentrate on breeding for dairy ability, hardiness, ease of kidding, and polled goats.
    All kids born on our farm are dam-raised. They are handled, cuddled, and played with from day 1 so they grow up very friendly - friendly enough to play King of the Mountain on your lap!

Poultry:
   We have Rhode Island Red, Buff Orpington, and White Leghorn hens, a beautiful Buff rooster named El Dorado, and a few Welsh Harlequin and Muscovy ducks. When breeding our birds, we select for mothering and egg-laying abilities.

Rabbits:
   We have New Zealand, Lionhead, and Netherland Dwarf rabbits in several colors. The New Zealand rabbits are used for meat.

Dogs:
   We have four happy-go-lucky dogs. The boss is a husky/Lab named Arthur. He likes to be in charge. Second-in-command is Charlie, a golden Lab/Aussie mix who is very smart and obedient. Then come Amanda (GSD/Aussie) and Lucy (Redbone coonhound mix). The dogs' job is to catch rats, guard the farm, and enjoy themselves!

Pigeons:
   We have a small flock of Birmingham roller pigeons.
