Welcome to Camelot Hills. Many times life takes us in many directions, you start out with an intention of doing one thing and it turns into another or expands into something larger. Well, that’s no exception here at Camelot Hills. Here’s our farm story.
Many years ago we purchased our first home with three acres of land. Not many months after we moved in we decided that we wanted to get a few chickens to have our own fresh eggs. As a couple years went by what was going to be 10-12 chickens ended up being over 100! We began selling the eggs at the door simply to help pay for what became a hobby. We also had a acquired a few pygmy goats as pets. We learned a lot about goats having the pygmies.
In 2012 our youngest daughter Jessica joined the FFA as she is quite the animal person, as is Jennifer and myself (Jason). Toward the end of 2012 she asked for pigs to raise and show. Well, after many months I finally caved and said sure…We learned a lot about market pigs in that short season, one of which was that we were not going to raise pigs anymore. We thought they were interesting animals, but seeing them go was a hard thing.
Toward the end of 2013 we were searching for the ‘right’ kind of animal we could raise and show for FFA and 4H, one that would fit our lifestyle and plans for the future. This turned out to be Dairy Goats. We search high and low and found several that were to our liking from several different farms. So we began our journey as an ADGA Dairy Goat Farm. So far we are enjoying our new adventures in goats and hope you will follow along with us.
Since we got our start several years ago, we have learned more about the Dairy Goat industry, Showing dairy goats and the products that we can create with the Milk than we could possibly could have ever imagined. Dairy Goats have become a huge part of our lives and our passion not only for Jessica but for Jennifer and myself. We now carry products such as Goat Milk Soap and Lotion under the name of Merlin’s Naturals as we use only natural ingredients and raw goat’s milk.
