We started building an Angora goat herd in 2014. We bought goats from all over New Zealand in order to combine a variety of genetics.
With meticulous selective breeding over the last decade we managed to build a herd of good quality, award winning animals, showing major improvements in mohair characteristics and animal size. However, good breeding only contributes to around a third to the quality of the fibre.
The remaining two thirds are attributed to the health and general well-being of the animal. Our animals are well fed and taken care of, and in return they reward us with exquisite, award winning fleeces, which we then use to produce a variety of products for the craft industry.
