Our Animals

Our first mama on the farm. Truly an experience of a lifetime!!! Sweet and plump, this little doe lets her babies steal the show. Even though she's a smaller Nigerian goat, Ana isn’t afraid of the baby calves coming to lick her fiber. Always quiet and kind - she'll only make her presence known if she needs something... We love her milk mustache and her caring demeanor. She’s half siblings with Sven and Olaf the and oldest of our herd. Before Ana became “mama,” she nurtured Mo and cared for him as her own. She enjoyed being around Elsa and now has a beautiful relationship with Nanny, our female Angora. She’s a "Wonder Goat" that doesn’t get enough attention for all the love and kindness she gives.

A true stand up comedian, Olaf makes us laugh everyday! Whether he’s trying to get our attention by stealing our tools, drinking our weekend cocktails, or prancing about, he always put a smile on our faces. He's a docile, sweet lover. If Olaf was a human, I think he’d be that guy that always listens and makes you feel better. If Olaf could grab a beer, he would. He’s an incredible goat with a great sense of humor, we cherish him dearly.

He’ll kill you with his baby blues. He is so in love with our yellow lab Caicos: he runs to him everyday and wishes Caicos loved him half as much. He's fun to be around and seems to attract the ladies... He's super handsome and sometimes very needy. He regally stands at the top of our goat hierarchy, reigning as the King of the Hill. I wish he was a buck: he would have been an awesome father. I always think of him as one the "sexiest goats alive" 😉.

Mo came to us via a large angora farm. Bottle fed babies are tough to deal with when you're running a farm of 800. Mo’s mom couldn’t feed him and the owner knew I was willing to give this a go. He was our first bottle fed baby and man did we love it!!! While cats have 9 lives, Mo has 10. Without a mom's colostrum, any mammal has a rougher start to life. This poor “kid” lacked vital antibodies and came to us with scours, developed pneumonia, and was near death upon an emergency vet visit. I credit our love for him but also the love of our black lab, Levi. Levi, our "manny," slept with Mo every night, even giving him a stuffed animal to cuddle with. Mo is super healthy today, follows me everywhere and has such a special place in my heart

Nanny also came from the angora farm of 800. She was properly weaned from mom and came to us at 12 weeks. Having never really been around people, she was super shy, skittish and beyond nervous. Mo was fiercely afraid of Nanny: we think Mo thought he was a Nigerian goat. He’d run and hide from Nanny because she looked and smelled different. Olaf, Sven and Ana weren’t as taken back by her white fiber. Nanny would often hide in a garbage can out of nervousness. Ana and Elsa became her friends and slowly but surely, she became part of the herd. When Ana had her babies we’d find Nanny in the birthing pen with Ana. Their friendship has blossomed especially after Elsa’s tragic death. It’s taken awhile for Nanny to come and cuddle with us, but she is not afraid to come for treats. Large crowds still “freak” her out a bit. Although super shy and lower on the pecking order of of goats, she was ironically the first to accept the baby calves. I think she really wants to be a mom. We’re hoping...

Belle was Ana's second born. When she was first delivered we thought we had lost her. She was limp and not breathing, second in order to her brother, who was stillborn. Thankfully our vet Dr. Class got her going. Boy were we happy! I couldn’t bear to lose another baby. She’ll be a year in April 2018. We love her gentle soul. She's not as outgoing as Boo --her twin-- but much fun to be around. She loves to be held and isn’t pushy at all. She’s always looking for someone to give her some attention. She can be really cuddly and loves to be kissed! She often hangs out with Olaf but never strays far from Mama Ana. I will never forget her eyes looking at me right after birth... I was in love!!!

This kid is constantly on my back! Everyday she rides on my shoulders as if she was a permanent part of my body. I feel lucky to have such a cutie around. She was the star kid at our goat yoga event. Boo loves to hop on on Josh's back and can’t get enough of Melissa. Melissa loves this little side kick (Thank goodness... My shoulders need the break.) If you ever want to know what it feels like to have a goat on your back, shoot us an email. Boo would love the adventure!

So for anyone who has ever had a small flock of chickens, I am sure you lost quite a few to predators. (After one fresh egg, you’ll never want to buy a dozen from the store again.) We had finally had enough loss and decided a LGD would be an integral part to our small hobby farm. At the time we had our 3 goats and multiple hens. Liv, Gigi and I took an 8 hour trip to spend time on an angora farm that also raised Maremmas: known for their excellent protecting skills. We were excited and anxious about our endeavor. Prior to our visit we were told we we had our choice of puppies or 9 month olds. Once we got to the farm, the owners informed us that these dogs had jobs and were not been social. We had to be cautious. Ironically, Jethro came up and kissed Gigi immediately. Our hearts connected and it was love at first sight (***as captured by the picture***) Jethro is majestic! But don’t be fooled. He has a job and is respected for just that. Nothing fools him. His protective nature has him checking out the scene and holding people in place if he feels they are a threat: ask the Central Hudson guy... Caicos and Levi are Jethro best buds - but when they cross the line they get taken down in a nano second. No one messes with his human family and or four legged friends. I love when he comes over and lays on me, I love watching him play with Caicos and I love how he always greets Levi. His relationship with the goats and hens is incredible: they know he is boss. Don’t be fooled by his sweetness and gorgeous fluff: he’s got a job and he knows when he has to work!!!

This handsome "dun" highland steer has stopped my heart right in its tracks. This stocky yet mushy baby has wrapped his fluffiness right down in my soul. Like his half-sister Muriel, this calf has taught me a thing or two about a thing or two. This block head loves to be cuddled and kissed. And boy, do I love kissing this guy! At 4 weeks (as of February 6, 2018) I have enjoyed every minute I have spent with him. His gorgeous locks make you want to use him as a teddy bear at night. Again, I am a proud mama…. He is just perfect!!!

This fabulous feline has stolen my heart. I swore I would never love another cat, and damn do I love her. Luna Luna is the sweetest feline. She serves as a livestock guardian cat and follows the herd wherever they go. She has a special bond with all of the animals. You can find her grooming the cows, head-butting Belle, or nuzzling Jethro. She loves human affection. She’s an incredible hunter. We’re very lucky to have her on our farm!

Named after my grandmother, Muriel AKA "Red,” this beautiful baby calf has turned my heart to complete mush. We brought her home on January 9th, 2018: her second day in this world. I have had the privilege of bottle feeding her and learning all about calf behavior (which is truly an experience of a lifetime.) I am a proud mama and the connection I have with Muriel goes beyond words. Like my grandmother, she stands tall, with bright eyes, slight anxiety, and never ready to settle down at night. She loves having someone by her side. In the winter, I wear my grandmother's winter coat as my “goat coat.” When I started wearing the coat, I got a lot of laughs. It’s a marshmallow yellow coat, ugly as sin, but my grandmother loved how it kept her warm. I love what it means to me and the warmth I feel when I wear it. Cows can live for 25 years… I love that I will have this time with Muriel… and now she can keep me warm too.

The most expressive dog I know! You don't need to ask how he’s doing: he’ll either cuddle right up next to you, or walk away if he’s mad. He loves attention and will show his jealous side if you dare give Levi or Jethro any. When he’s mad at me, for showing love to another, he will sit in the third row of my suburban. If he’s feeling super lovey doves he rides shot gun. He does however always aim to please. He loves his walks with Levi and his rough play with Jethro. While Jethro is our Livestock guardian dog, Caicos-- on his own-- learned to watch birds of prey that often stalk our hens. His watchful behavior has saved many of their lives. The two combined keep our flocks, herd and fold pretty safe!!! Every morning Caicos jumps in bed for a snuggle, a quiet moment between us. I treasure these snuggles and never fear anything while he’s by my side!

He's my soulmate, my walking buddy and dear friend. We’ve walked over a 100,000 miles together, no lie. At 12 1/2 he’s walking like he’s 2 and still gets excited when he hears the leashes come out of the dog drawer. Levi LOVES babies: human babies, chicks, “kids”, calves, puppies... ANY BABY at all! The minute a new baby arrives, Levi is there with a smile on his face and unconditional love, whatever creature it may be. I have never seen a dog love so much. I count everyday we have together as a blessing. He’s been with me through the most difficult and happy times of my life. I cherish every moment. He deserves the BEST dog award ever!!! He fills a part of my soul that I can’t describe. Levi is always cheerful and uplifting and has been there for me, my kids, the newest baby and our family. I love you buddy!!!

My name is Aimee and my husband’s name is Josh. We live on a small hobby farm in the Hudson Valley. Our goal is to share the love we have for our animals with you! We have found that having farm animals has filled our home with more warmth than one can imagine. We both believe that life is more complete when there is a fluffy or feathered friend that appreciates your kindheartedness. We’d like to spread that joy with you and continue to pay it forward.  Shoot us an email to say hello, book an event, or come up and meet our animals.  We’d love to share our view with you! 

 

This is gonna be a tough bio to write. My incredibly talented daughter, Olivia has been my soul mate and partner here at Noble Farms. From the first batch of chicks, to goats, to Jethro, to calves, she’s been my right hand “wo-man” and confidant. The stories we hope to share with you, we’ve lived. The unconditional love we’ve given to our animal friends, we’ve felt back. The losses we’ve had hurt bad. Together she and I have learned a lot, cried a lot, laughed a lot, and just had some raw time together. She’ll sing to the animals and to me while we care for them. She nurtures them as she nurtures me. She also designed our website. She’s been one hell of a hobby farmer and this tiny tyke can really haul some hay…. So watch out boys!!! She’s graduating school this year (2018) and I thank her for every minute she’s dedicated to our farm. I could not have done this without her… Love you kid…. NO BULL!!!

While most of the kids in today’s society are on their cell phones, Gigi is out getting dirty and pitching in. The youngest farm hand we have --at just 11-- she replenishes the hay for the animals, bottle feeds babies, feeds the chicks and walks the goats and cows. Every day before school with a smile on her face she willingly helps me with morning duties. How lucky am I? She’s just there because she wants to be. I am a proud mama and this little chick is the future... Love you Gigi ... No Bull!!!
