Bellafire Farm is a small little farm now located on 6 1/2 acres in Yamhill County, Oregon. We are roughly an hour from Salem, Oregon and Portland, Oregon. We pride ourselves on raising top quality ADGA registered dairy goats. We show in ADGA shows and complete an official ADGA Linear Appraisal of our goats each year. In 2021 we will be participating in ADGA & DHI Milk Testing program again, which officially tracks how much our girls milk and also the overall health & quality of that milk & of the doe herself.
About our goats and babies:All of our mature animals, both bucks & doe's, are all DNA tested with ADGA. Our goats are maintained with the utmost care and dedication to their well-being. Our adult goats (even our bucks) are gentle, affectionate, people-oriented animals. They are wonderful, loving "family members" first & foremost, and we strive to have them succeed as top quality show animals too. Our adult animals are tested free of CAE, CL, Johnes, Q-Fever & Brucellosis. We maintain a disease-free herd using very strict bio-security measures which allows us to produce exceptionally healthy, happy animals. We do NOT allow farm visits due to our bio-security protocols, except for buyers specifically picking up their purchased animals. * Always Negative Disease Testing of majority herd: 2013, Summer 2015, Fall 2016, Fall 2017, Spring 2019 (entire herd tested)- Negative CAE, CL, Q-Fever, Johnes. Early 2021 entire herd tested Negative CAE, CL, Johnes.
Purchasing a goat: see the Breeding Page and Sales Page for more info. It's VERY important to me that these well-bred animals go to loving homes where they can show their true potential! If you are interested in purchasing an animal; a $50 non-refundable deposit will hold a kid of your choice until it is ready (approx. 6-8 wks old). A $100 deposit will hold an adult until transportation is arranged (transportation must occur within 30 days or deposit if forfeited & animal can be resold/retained). Please check out the current Breeding Schedule & Sales Page for upcoming kids/sales. * You can view our updated Sales Contract, which must be filled out, signed, and returned before any goats leave for their new home. DO NOT submit a deposit and contract until we have arranged your reservation. Updated Sales Contract can be seen & printed here. *~* Please review our "So You Want A Goat" page , our "Goat Basics" page, and our "New Goat Owners Pages" before putting in a reservation. These pages were designed to help potential buyers understand the basics of goat care. It is extremely important to me that buyers are making well thought out & educated decisions when purchasing one of our goaties :-). LOTS of love, attention, and care are required to raise a happy Bellafire Farm goat. Feel free to email if you have any questions: email@example.com In an effort to keep our herd as healthy as possible, we maintain very strict biosecurity here and do no allow visitors in/around the goats.
2021 - A late start to the year and show season BUT so far it's been worth the wait! We were blessed to be able to get our herd appraised this year! We had a GREAT TIME and got some AMAZING scores and feedback! (6th F) GCH (pending) Bellafire BP Flower Girl EEEE 91 (Her dam is GCH Sweet Alyssum who is also EEEE 91) (3rd F) Bellafire MM Garden Party VEEE 90 (this is Flower's daughter, so seems to be continuing a long line of very highly appraising doe's!) (1st F) Bellafire LTB Midsummer Night VVEV 89 (2nd F) Bellafire 8SR Jenga VEEE 90 (2nd F) Bellafire EN Wine N Roses VVVV 88 (also another young daughter of Flower Girl, Granddaughter of Sweet Alyssum) (1st F) Bellafire EN Surprise Party V+VV 88 (stunning first freshening doe from Encore & Garden Party. Garden is daughter to Flower)
"Barn in the USA" Washington Show, our first show of 2021!- All the girls did WONDERFUL! All made the upper half of the class in all of their HUGE classes! Attending was Jenga, MidSummer Night, Wine N Roses, Garden Party, Surprise Party, and Flower Girl - Flower Girl WON her final GCH win in her first ring! This finishes her as a second generation, permament GCH Bellafire Farm doe and she and her GCH mother both scored 91 on their LA as well!! Whoo-hoo! My next goal for Flower and her mom is SG! Hoping we can snag one more amazing accomplishment for these fabulous two doe's!
Jackson Co/Leilia Berry show - Again, all the girls did AMAZING! All placings in the top of the classes under all 3 judges. Bellafire EN Surprise Party was RGCH under judge Rebecca Nix. Turned out the GCH doe is a finished CH already, so I'm hopeful that this will be a full restricted leg for Surprise Party making it her first Champion Leg as a First Freshening two year old! Surprise is daughter to Garden Party (Garden is daughter to GCH Flower Girl, and granddaughter to GCH Sweet Alyssum, so a LONG line of GCH is in the making!). Speaking of...Bellafire MM Garden Party won GCH & BOB under judge Kristopher Farley. This is her first year in the show ring and her first GCH win, in what I hope will be a road to a 3rd generation Bellafire Farm finished GCH doe!
2020 Update - Well 2020 was a bit of a loss due to the Covid19 pandemic. We did not have any shows in our area at all and we did not have the herd on milk test. We DID however buy a wonderful new property with acreage for the herd to roam and graze!
2018 UPDATE - 2/11/2018 - ADGA reveals CONGRATULATIONS ARE DUE FOR ALETHIA JD BACHELOR PARTY+*B! BP earned his "+" 1/5/2018 - I found a FANTASTIC blog post by Melody Shaw of Narrow Gate Nigerians that easily lays out the basics to getting started with DHI milk testing! It's a WONDERFUL article! Click this link or the page above titled "Milk Testing Basics" to read all about it! It's a fantastic read! And don't forget if you have Bellafire Farm related goats, we have a 'rebate/refund' program (see below) to award you for all your hard work!

** CASH BACK PRIZE PROGRAM FOR MILK PRODUCTION AWARDS & ADGA SHOW WINS **
BEGINNING NOW - In order to PROMOTE the foundation animals that I STRONGLY believe in and to further promote our Bellafire Farm offspring that live in new happy herds... I have decided to start a CASH BACK prize program to encourage owners with our Bellafire Farm goats and/or offspring from bucks used in our herd to strive for the "Big Winners" and "Big Milkers" in both the show ring and in milk production! ** Option 1 = I will send $50 back to any owner that wins an official Grand Champion ADGA Leg on any junior or adult animal that is in the Bellafire Farm herdname OR is out of a buck used at Bellafire Farm (Bucks such as Goldenbrook Farm Firework, Rosasharn Decoroso *B, Alethia JD Bachelor Party *B, Algedi Farm Buck Rogers, Castle Rock GN Gran Torino *B, Poppy Patch Honey Ima Hottie, & others). This means that EACH ADGA leg you earn on a Bellafire Farm goat or offspring from one of our owned/previously owned bucks wins you $50!!! If a Permanent Championship is completed I will send an ADDITIONAL $50!! That's $200 in your pocket for completing a CH on a Bellafire Farm goat!! ** Option 2 = I will send $50 back to any owner that completes a full ADGA milk star by either One Day Milk Test OR thru other ADGA DHI Program options. Please email me if you would like information on signing up for DHIA through ADGA. It is NOT that hard to do, but you must be dedicated to milking twice daily, tracking your doe's milk production through DHIA paperwork and (at minimum) monthly testing by a licensed tester in your area. It is not difficult to do milk testing, but it does require commitment and dedication on your part to ensure your doe can earn that star! YOU CAN WIN BOTH OPTIONS, MILK & SHOW!!! I ENCOURAGE YOU TO DO SO!! Official 2017 ADGA GUIDEBOOK Rules
CONGRATULATIONS !!! To Jennifer of Hidden Hills Dairy Goats, and GCH Bellafire BP Country Melody 1*M who earned her AR milk Star as a first freshener in volume, fat and protein! This is quite an accomplishment for a first freshener! CONGRATULATIONS !!! To Jodi of STAYAWHILE FARM on the great accomplishment of earning milk stars on BOTH Bellafire BP Winter Wedding 7*M AND her dam Bellafire WH Against All Odds 6*M!
