Kiko goats originated in New Zealand and are easy keepers and very friendly!
About the Breed
Kiko goats originated in New Zealand out of the need for a hardy and useful domestic breed. The breed came about with a cross of feral goats and domestic dairy goats, making them very easy keepers but also friendly.
The name Kiko comes from the Māori word for meat. Māori are the indigenous Polynesian people of the New Zealand mainland.
Kiko goats are known for their meat, hence the name. They grow to a finished weight in less time with fewer resources than other breeds.
Kikos on the Farm
We utilize our goats for both meat and grazing. We love that their hardiness results in an affordable meat product for our clients. We love watching our goats use their instincts to climb rocks, hills and ravines to clear land.
