Bear Creek Farms is a 40 acre farm located in Logan County, Oklahoma. Although we live in the Meridian, Ok zip code we are closer to the town of Guthrie, OK. We became bored with retirement so decided to get a few goats as a hobby. That little hobby has now become a large part of our life and we love it. We chose the Kiko breed of goats because of their hardiness, parasite resistance and great maternal instincts. They have not disappointed us. We are proud of our herd and work to improve it with each new breeding season.
We are a member of the National Kiko Registry and all of our Kiko goats are registered in this registry. The NKR website provides articles, newsletters, forms, classified ad, events, a breeder directory and links to some other really great goat related websites. They have a pedigree search that you can register for on their site. To search our goats use our herd prefix DRG.

We love Goat Rancher magazine and are always so happy to find it in the mailbox. It is a one stop source for what is going on in the goat world and has very informative articles about all aspects of raising goats written by people who actually raise goats. There are pages and pages of color advertisements of upcoming goat sales, amazing goat pictures and a Calendar of Events. The magazine has a wealth of information about breeders and their contact information. There is even a recipe column. If you are not a magazine person it is now available in digital version.

One of the best moves we made before we bought our first goat was to attend the Oklahoma Meat Goat Boot Camp presented by Oklahoma State University. If you have any doubts about whether or not you want to raise goats or if you are already raising goats but, feel you wish you knew more about what you are doing then this is the course for you. It is a combo of book learning, hands on experience and even a farm visit. To top it off you get to look at Barber Pole worms through a microscope! An excellent course.

This website is a great source for fact sheets about small ruminants and the management of parasites and coccidiosis. It provides a dewormer chart for goats and a fact sheet for using combination dewormers. Visit them at: https://www.wormx.info/resources/pdf/2014goatdewormerchart.pdf
The Onion Creek Ranch website is a great source for articles about raising goats. A list of the articles can be found on the home page. Just scroll down until you see them. They also have a search engine on the website that allows you to search by keywords to make it easier to get info quick. Visit them at: http://www.tennesseemeatgoats.com/articles2/articlesMain.html
Raising Kiko goats has given us a new family. We call it our "goat family". Goat Hills Kiko, (Dave & Linda Sparks) and Kent Perkins (HATT55) got us started in the Kiko goat business and have been a wealth of information, help and friendship. We have found that no matter what time of day or night it is if you need help your goat family is only a call away. Through the Kiko goat consignment sales we have made so many more friends, too many to list here but, you know who you are and we feel so fortunate to have you on our friend list. Goat people are just great people!
We do not have a Facebook page for our farm.
New NKR owners were presented to the KIKO goat consigners at the COC sale in Corydon, IN. We are very proud of their selection.
