quickly becoming the most sought after breed of goats due to their
outstanding ability to produce sweet, rich tasting milk. Their milk
contains a higher butterfat content as compared to other goat
breeds. This added fat content is great for producing cheese, fudge,
ice cream and butter.
We breed to
maintain and improve our lines with an emphasis on producing
correct, statuesque, feminine Nubians that milk quality, quantity
bloodlines include Lakeshore Farms, Kastdemur, Goldthwaite,
Price 'O' the Field, Pruittville, Voxwood and Kismet. Our goat's
hail from State Woods Farm of Kentucky, Hagler Farm of Tennessee,
Pruittville Farm of Louisiana and TLC-Farm of Texas.
All of our goats
receive vaccinations for CD/T, Staph mastitis and pneumonia. All of
our animals currently test free annually for CAE. We no longer test
for TB as Tennessee is a TB-free state at this time. Breeding is
done in a controlled manner to achieve the best we possibly can from
the breed for both dairy and show.
The goats are fed
free-choice Alfalfa/Orchard Grass hay, minerals, kelp meal and
baking soda. We feed a varying ration, depending on each goat's
needs, of an 18% dairy feed, beet pulp and soybean meal. We use BoSe
injections as a source of selenium supplement as needed.
Our goats are
currently registered with the American Dairy Goat Association under
the herd name S-Stone Farms. Previously, our does were registered as
S-Stone Four Winds, however, we quickly realized we needed more
space for our names. My daughter, Jennifer Butler, began registering
her own Nubians under the herd name of Trivium in 2009. Her goats
will be maintained here on the farm and managed the same as the
Standing Stone herd.

popularity of our cheese making school we spend most every weekend

The Music City Classic was a great day. We took one senior doe and
two junior does with great results. We won Senior Grand Champion and
BOB in both rings with our senior doe, Sophia, which finished her
championship. We also took Junior Grand Champion and BIS in both
junior rings with our S-Stone Anastasia and S-Stone Solitaire.
In addition to
raising and breeding for sale to other like-minded dairy goat herd

goat milk lotions and soaps. We offer cheesemaking classes from
beginner to advanced that will include both demonstration and
