About the Farm
FoxDog Farm is a family owned farm which, until we retired in 2017, grew and sold vegetables, herbs, and flowers using organic methods. We still grow those vegetables, but in much smaller amounts for our personal use. We also still sell Nigerian Dwarf Goats. If you live near Kingston WA you might see us working as you drive by (we are on Miller Bay Rd, about 1/2 mi. south of Kountry Korner).
The farm began as a dream. When Rikke Giles (see below) lived in England for several years back in the 1980s and early 1990s she became attuned to both the organic food movement and the horrible conditions under which factory farming of meat and milk animals takes place in the UK, Europe and the United States. She dreamed of being able to raise her own wholesome food with respect for the environment, the plants, and the animals that provide that food.
Starting a farm, a huge step in reality, began with small steps such as growing herbs, vegetables and even corn in pots on the balcony of her flat in Philadelphia. Eventually she moved back home to the Pacific Northwest and obtained a bit of land. That bit of land, with much hard work by both Rikke and her partner (now husband!), Randy Wagner, has become FoxDog Farm. FoxDog Farm is still organic, even after Rikke and Randy retired from selling produce, and FoxDog animals are raised humanely, naturally, and with kindness and love.
About the FoxDog Farm Goats
Our herd is officially called the 'FoxDog Stampede'. We started with goats back in 2003, obtaining 5 young goats as brush eaters. We soon realized that our goats made excellent milkers and switched over to milk production. We now have a steady herd of approx. 25-30 goats, with more arriving during the kidding season. If you are interested in purchasing a great little milk goat, or a good pet, companion or brush eater, check out our goat webpages, the goat sales webpages and get in touch with us (see 'Contact US' in the righthand webpage column).
