'But I will continually hope, and yet praise thee more and more.' - Psalms 71:14
Welcome to the Pelzel family farm (Stephen, Renee, Jada, Micah, Cohen, and Ethan). We are located in Paradise, Texas (about an hour from Dallas/Fort Worth), and are involved with several different animals. However, our registered Nigerian Dwarfs are the heart of our farm. The herd is tested annually for CAE and intermittently for other diseases and given the best of care. We signed up for standard 305 (AGS) and 20 (ADGA) DHI programs in the beginning of 2014 and have never looked back.
Since we are breeding for milk production and show, we offer big discounts to show homes and DHI homes on all our goat kids. We are members of the American Goat Society (AGS) and the American Dairy Goat Association (ADGA), the Central Texas Dairy Goat Association (CTDGA), and the Dairy Goat Owners Across Texas (DGOAT) organizations. In addition to the dairy goats, we also care for various breeds of laying hens that give us colorful blue, green, and brown eggs.
But we couldn't do it alone. Granny and PawPaw (Danny and Becky Singleton) have always been involved in our adventures but also in the beginning of 2014 really decided how much they loved the goats themselves and an even bigger breeding program went blooming. The lamancha breed was a better fit for them and they have a wonderful breeding program too! Please look them up on facebook, Paradise Standards, if you are in the market for a standard breed of goat. Our families have been blessed to enjoy the things that our heavenly Father put here for us in a way a lot of people these days can't. This truly is our little piece of heaven here on earth and it is loaded with short things - including our four energetic and young children! But we really love them all and spoil everything. We all work hard together but we play hard too!
In case you are wondering where we came up with our name, here's a real good illustration of our 'short" on our piece of 'heaven'.
