Webber's Grove Farm is located near the state capitol of Texas. Tracing the land's history, our 100 acre farm once belonged to John and Sylvia Webber, an early Texas Pioneer family. We honor this family's heritage and value the importance of preserving our past.
Webber's Grove is a working farm. Visitation to purchase a goat must be made in advance. Most of the time, our goats are in the forest, out of sight and very reluctant to leave the rich bounty that Mother Nature has placed before them. If we know you are coming, our goats can be kept up in their small overnight pastures. That is why mornings are best, right after their breakfast kibble.
When you come, we expect you to wear sturdy clothes. Open-toed shoes are not encouraged because of nettle and stickers. There are fire ants, scorpions as well as poisonous snakes on our property. It is advised to keep on open paths and watch where you are treading. Our goats are Texas tough and you should be too.
We welcome all people who want to "talk goat." However, we are not a tourist attraction. Petting goats, letting them eat out of your hands and what is considered family-friendly fun activities is not us. Instead, we are willing to discuss barber-pole worms and other parasites, FAMACHA, fecal analysis, feed, hay, minerals, hoof trimming, vaccinations and other management skills. We want you to be informed and happy with your new purchase.
Dian Naumann of Shade Tree Acres was an early fainting goat preservationist. Her Myotonic Goat Registry Breeder (MGR) number was #003. She passed away in in Garfield, Texas in June of 2020. While the majority of her herd was sold to off-set funeral costs, forty does and bucks were brought to our farm. This herd's bloodlines are one of the remaining early Texas pedigrees. Webber's Grove will continue to preserve this important early genetic line. When their photographs were posted on Facebook, MGR breeders throughout the United States commented...
Christina Mick Brown I love the traditional, preserved traits of the myos. They are beautiful. I’d never want to purchase from anyone who hasn’t worked to preserve this. Hardy, parasite resistant, and built like a tank. There’s nothing more beautiful than a traditional myotonic bred by someone who has worked hard to preserve the breed.
Courtney Church I appreciate you continuing this line that has made such an impact on the breed!
Beth Kornegay I love them . Thank you for keeping that bloodline alive.
Mackenzie Jurek I love the old lines! I have few does that goes back to the old lines on both sides and I just love them. To me, you can't beat the old lines and they are treasures. Back in 2012, when I first learned about the breed, it got me to study and searching them heavily.... I fell in love with the big massive animals with great bone to meat ratio. The easy keepers, docile and not much input in them was even more incredible for the amount of massive that's on them.
