History of Deer Haven Farms

We purchased our 26 acres in November 2003.  Our first animals were some very friendly whitetail deer, hence the name Deer Haven Farms.  We are located in Southern Illinois, just 9 miles north of Mt Vernon (intersection of I-64 & I-57).  We are very active in showing our goats.  Vicky is a certified ABGA judge.

Our first experience with Boer goats was the purchase of two Boer X Nubian doelings from Destiny Farm.  They were a week old when we brought them home.  It took us just a few minutes to fall in love with them.  The two doelings somehow managed to multiply into our herd of over 60 goats at any time with the help of Sunny Slope Boer Goats, John Newman, Gilliam Boer Goats, MAC Goats, Able Acres, Loid Farms, River Ridge Boers, and Poor Folks Ranch  (Gary Kemp). 

We recently added some beautiful show quality Nubian, Saanen and Recorded Grade does to our herd in 2009.  Thanks to Holly Buroker at HOANBU Dairy Goats in Bellefontaine OH.  

We are distributors for the WED-2000 ultrasound machine for use in the reproductive ultrasounding of goats, sheep and hogs.  Please check the link out for more details on the machine and contact Vicky at 618-318-0516 for pricing and more information.  Ultrasound information

The Goat Depot

We recently purchased property across the street from our farm that includes the original Texico train depot.  We will be renovating it and opening a "goats only" store featuring Nutrena, Acco and Showmaster feeds; Northeast Gate Equipment, and general goat supplies.
