We have welcomed a new herd sire to our

out his predigree on our Junior Buck Page.
and welcome to Fairland Farm where we treasure our little Nigerian Dwarf Goats. We are excited to tell you about
our Nigerian Dwarf goats. We breed mostly for show quality animals but also have some pet quality for those who want to focus
more on milk production or just as pets. We were formerly known as Heritage Acres Farm. We had decided on Heritage Acres
because of the family history on our farm but in 2008 discovered a picture
that my Great-Grand Parents had taken with the farm name, Fairland Farm, painted on the barn. We just couldn't resist
going back to the farm name that my Great Grandpa, Oliver Culp, had given it. The buildings at our farm were built in
the 1870's. We love the Godly heritage that we have here on our farm. It has been in our family for 3 generations. My Great-Grand Parents bought the farm in 1928. My Grand Parents
bought it from them in 1968 and we bought it from them in 2001. We love the area where we live. After moving to the farm
I, Dawn, knew we needed some livestock for our farm. (I grew up on a dairy farm) After doing much research I discovered
the Nigerian Dwarf goat. I contacted several breeders and bought my first two does from Deena Sansone at Kaapio Acres.
That was the beginning of a wonderful adventure with these wonderful little caprines.

We are a family of four. Greg and Dawn Birr and our two girls
Gabrielle and Reagan. We love our Nigerian Dwarf goats and enjoy showing the little caprines. We began attending
shows in 2007 and have loved every minute of it. We had a very successful show season in 2013, winning many Grand Champions
and several Best in Shows. We are very active in the 4-H program in Elkhart County here in Indiana. Greg and I are 4-H
leaders and both of the girls are in 4-H. We feel that the 4-H program is one of the best for building character in
