Description of farming experience

Dragon's Nest began with the joy and love for cashmere goats and many other animals. Kace has been raising cashmere goats since the summer of 2005. He started in Ann Bertschy’s Get Your Goat Club, and he fell in love with them. He has experience with kidding, hoof clipping, combing of fiber, and many other areas of goat care and general farm animal care. Kace has worked as a farm manager at Tomahawk Ranch from 2018-2020, taking care of a diverse array of animals such as; alpacas, Lamas, horses, sheep, goats, pigs, donkeys, and many chickens.
Kristina is in the process of learning all about goat care but is loving every second of it. She has her BS in Business Management and always wanted to have a small business of her own. She loves all animals and always had a dream to have a farm. She has been a helping hand at her childhood camp's farm for many years and at West Farm Goats, learning what it takes to take care of the animals and the farm itself.
