Hi! I have a small issue I hope you can help with. About 7 weeks ago two Guinea Hens came up into my barn off the road. One has died and the one left is rather lonely and a bit stressed. Do you have a hen I can buy or have to help this one out. They were quite bonded and as a rescue the only solution I can think of is find this one a friend.
Thank you split creek farm for your amazing cheese. I stuffed a hamburger with your feta marinated in oil, topped it with some crumbled dry wrap feta, chow chow and bacon! WINNER WINNER!
I have a friend wanting to find RENNETT so they can make some mozzarella.. Do you have or can tell me locally in Anderson where to find some?

Susie, our most senior herd member (13 y/o and loving retired life), reminded us today that it’s National Dairy Goat Awareness Week! 🎉🐐👏

Help us celebrate by visiting the farm on Friday or Saturday to take our self guided tour, register for one of our upcoming yoga sessions with our milking herd via Anderson Yoga Center, or visit us at the Saturday Market for some delicious goat milk products.

We thank you for your continued love and support over the years!

We had a great time at the Evin Evans Spring Show this weekend. There were so many beautiful animals, great friends and too many good times packed into two short days to mention them all!

Stand outs for this weekend:

CH Split-Creek Treader’s Caspian (pending) - Toggenburg Buck - Reserve Grand Champion AOP, Grand Champion AOP, Best of Breed and Best Buck in Show. Once approved by ADGA, Caspian will be awarded his Permanent Champion title. 👏

Split-Creek Denali’s Kodiak - Alpine Junior Doe - Grand Champion Junior Alpine 2x’s, Best Junior Doe in Show 2x’s

Evie’s Sc Prism’s Light - Toggenburg Junior Doe - Grand Champion Junior AOP 2x’s, Best Junior Doe in Show 2x’s

Split-Creek Joanna’s Posey - Lamancha Junior Doe - Grand Champion Junior Lamancha, Reserve Grand Champion Junior Lamancha

Split-Creek Ansley’s Dallas - Experimental Doe - Grand Champion Junior Recorded Grade 2x’s, Reserve Grand Champion Junior Recorded Grade 2x’s

Several others did well within their breeds standing among some strong, beautiful competition. Unfortunately, due to insufficient entries, their wins will not count toward their official show records. We are still proud of:
Split-Creek Poe’s Annabelle
Split-Creek Smoke’s Daffodil
Split-Creek Denali’s Helix
Split-Creek Treader’s Image
Split-Creek Trinity’s Delphi

A big THANK YOU to the Small Animal Producer’s Association and NC Extension Office for hosting another great show and to our judges for their thoughtful evaluation of all entries.

Congratulations to all of our fellow exhibitors on their wins and accomplishments. Hope to see you again next year!

Did you know our goats have access to 27 fenced acres of pastures and browsing areas? They sure do!

We love this area of our farm and, since it’s hard to see from our public areas, we thought we would share. This is our newest “let it grow” spot on the farm.

Our front pasture clover patch has been cut back in preparation for upcoming Sunset Yoga sessions. But, we have opened access to some more shady areas with plenty of honeysuckle, Poison Ivy and other yummy leaves for the milking herd to browse and enjoy.

We were back out at show this past weekend in Carrollton, Georgia attending the 2021 Carrollton Classic.

We added some new entries this show to include a few of our senior milking girls. Everyone did well in their age groups and we managed to come away with a few ribbons in some highly competitive breeds, too!

Stand outs for this show were:

Split-Creek Arden’s Adair (Lamancha yearling doe)- Jr. Grand Champion

Split-Creek Joanna’s Posey (Lamancha yearling doe) - Jr. Reserve Grand Champion

Split-Creek Ansley’s Dallas (Experimental yearling doe) - Jr. Reserve Grand Champion 2x’s

Split-Creek Treader’s Caspian (Toggenburg yearling buck) - Reserve Grand Champion Sr Buck

We thank our friends - again - for getting a few photos, holding our goats and helping us show while we were shuffling goats and showing different breeds in different rings all weekend.

Congratulations to everyone on their accomplishments and thank you to the Carrollton show team and judges for their efforts in making this show happen.

Need someone to just sit and listen for a while? Fortune, our current greeter goat, is happy to help!

We are open for visitation today and tomorrow from 10 am - 6 pm.

Stop by and take our self guided tour which begins near the customer parking area, meet Fortune and lots of others around the farm, then stop into the Farm Store for a piece of fudge or some other treat to take home!

Have a great weekend.

Once a lap goat...always a lap goat! 🤷‍♀️

Even when they get bigger and “grow up” we still love and enjoy the unique personalities of our goats.

Image loves her belly scratches (among a LOT of other things - and especially from Jessica) so we are more than happy to oblige!

We managed to get off of the farm to participate in our first show of the season - the Pride of Piedmont Spring Show in Winston-Salem, NC.

It was great to see so many of our goat friends again and have the opportunity to exhibit alongside some beautiful animals.

Standout achievements for the weekend included:

Split-Creek Poe’s Lenore (Recorded Grade yearling doe) - Jr Grand Champion and Best of Breed 2x’s and Best Jr Doe in Show

Split-Creek Treader’s Caspian (Toggenburg yearling buck) - Grand Champion and Best of Breed 2x’s

Split-Creek Poe’s Annabelle (Recorded Grade 2 y/o doe) - Sr Grand Champion and Best of Breed

Split-Creek Selene’s Okina (Saanen yearling doe) - Jr Reserve Grand Champion, Jr Grand Champion and Best of Breed 2x’s

Split-Creek Treader’s Image (Toggenburg yearling doe) - Jr Reserve Grand Champion

We aren’t able to get a lot of photos showing multiple breeds and ages but below are a few candids we captured.

Thank you to the Piedmont Dairy Goat Association for hosting this show and to our judges for their time spent evaluating so many animals.

Congratulations to all on their accomplishments - we hope to see you again soon!

Herd of Distinction Award - American Dairy Goat Association - ADGA 05/18/2021

Herd of Distinction Award - American Dairy Goat Association - ADGA

More exciting news!

The American Dairy Goat Association published its list of those meeting criteria for a new award today - the “Herd of Distinction” award.

We are proud to announce Split Creek Farm is included in this list of distinguished and skillful breeders. What an honor to be among this group recognized for years of dedication and hard work while doing what we love - spending time with our goats!

Congratulations to all!

More information about this award and a list of other recipients can be found below.

Herd of Distinction Award - American Dairy Goat Association - ADGA ADGA has a new award to recognize herds that have demonstrated a level of distinction above all others over time by ADGA programs such as DHI Production, Linear Appraisal and Shows

05/14/2021

We are proud to report we had our first ADGA Linear Appraisal of our herd yesterday and could not be more pleased with the results. It was a LONG day with over 100 animals for our appraiser to evaluate - but we made it with just 2 weeks notice. Kudos to Jessica for getting everyone's hooves trimmed, our staff for pitching in to get tails/udders clipped, etc. and to our appraiser for scoring animals, non stop, for over 8 hours! (Sandra? Well, she just stressed out for 2 weeks! 😂)

The ADGA Linear Appraisal system is a tool designed to evaluate the structure of the animal for performance purposes – and the rating standard is based on a 4 y/o animal which assumes she has also had multiple lactations. More info on this program can be found here: https://adga.org/performance-programs/linear-appraisal/

Of the 54 does scored (those currently in milk production), only 1 scored in the Acceptable (Average) category – the remainder of the herd scored 80 or above in the Good Plus (17), Very Good (32) or Excellent (4) categories.

In the Very Good category, it’s worth noting that 78% of these does are First Fresheners (some only a few days in milk production) and 58% of these does are on an extended lactation/milk thru – some for over 2 years! These are important statistics for us to see because our primary goal is to breed strong, healthy animals capable of extended lactations.

Scoring in the Excellent category – (Note: the highest score possible is a 94 and that score requires a committee review) we owe a shout out to these girls: 👏👏👏

CH Split-Creek Smoke’s Ivy Jane (Alpine) 91 VEEE (on extended lactation)
Split-Creek Demi’s Brigit (Alpine) 90 VEEE (on extended lactation)
Split-Creek King’s Chandler (Saanen) 90 VEEE
Split-Creek Wyatt’s Inquisitive (Nubian) 90 VVEE

While everyone has their own herd goals and use Linear Appraisals in different ways, our goal was simply to see how we are doing, overall, with our breeding and improvement program. In looking at this data, it is apparent that our efforts to breed for extended lactations while making some significant structural changes in the past few years were successful. Across the board and in all breeds, our does scored consistently high in areas we have worked very hard to improve – we had no surprises during the assessments and believe the next couple of generations will show marked improvements in a few other areas of focus.

Now it's time to prepare for show season!

Happy Mother’s Day from our two youngest kids at the farm.

“May” and “Force” (born on May 4th 😉), along with all of us at the farm, hope it’s a great day for everyone.

05/08/2021

It’s Mother’s Day weekend! The weather looks great today and the farm is open from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. for visitation. It’s going to be a great day to bring your Mother out to meet and learn more about our Mothers at the farm!

Our self-guided tour prototype signs are up and available too! Start your tour at the “Welcome” sign near our customer parking area and then look for additional signs like the one pictured as you enjoy your visit. Even if you visit us often, we bet you’ll learn something you didn’t know about our farm and animals!

If a visit with the animals isn’t sweet enough, our Farm Store will be stocked with plenty of our award winning fudge and other local treats.

Farm admission and our self guided tour are free but donations are appreciated. All donations go to our nonprofit, Goats 4 Goodness, to be used in developing educational programs like our self guided tour and other important initiatives.

Hope to see you soon!
