When we bought our first Nubian milk goats in the early spring of 2014, we had no idea that we would fall in love with those funny, one-of-a-kind creatures. But that is exactly what happened! Since then, we have become passionate about dairy goats – Nubians in particular - and have together grown a dream to build a solid and well reputed herd of Nubians. We have just started on that journey and we love it!
We are the Pellett family – lovers of God, passionate for His Kingdom and for being a light in His world. We also have a passion for family, for farming and for sustainability.
In 2015/2016, our family and dairy herd lived on the Texas/Mexico border as we worked with a ministry to spearhead a sustainability project for their mission base. That time was one of growth and learning for us. We are so thankful for that time and experience!
Now we have come back to our home state of Colorado and Andrew and I (Ande) manage our farm together and include our children in every way we can! We are excited to work toward sustainability as a farm and family and are working on developing various aspects of our farm with the goal of farming full time.
White Fields Farm unofficially began in 2014 when we acquired our first two Nubian does for our family's personal dairy needs. In the beginning we really knew nothing, but have eagerly learned much in the years since then.
In the spring of 2015 we decided to move toward having registered animals and to learn more about building a good quality Nubian herd. We decided that we want to focus on high milk production with good conformation. We also want to strive to breed strong, hearty goats who are true dual-purpose animals - useful for milk and meat.
As we establish and grow our herd, we have chosen to add genetics from herds that will help us meet the goals we have established for our own herd. We are thrilled to use genetics from high production Nubian lines including Black Mesa Ranch and Six M Galaxy as well as very stylish milky show lines including Goldthwaite and Jacob's Pride.
We regularly participate in ADGA's Linear Appraisal program and participated in DHIR in 2019 with hopes of revisiting milk test in the future. We are very excited to use these tools to better our herd.
We feel we have come a long way in the past few years and we know we have a long way yet to go. But we really don't mind! We absolutely love taking this journey together!
