​where the goat keep goating... 

Lick Creek Acres was officially established in January 2006 in beautiful Southern Illinois.  Here at Lick Creek Acres we are proud to have some nice registered boer goats that are the complete package of build & color.  We started with our first goat "Ruby" that was a super cute strawberry blonde doe that was given to us by family when we moved from the busy Northwest Suburbs of Chicago to the breathtaking Shawnee National Forest area in Southern Illinois in May 2005.  


                                             

                                    We are a small family run goat farm.  We currently have 18 breeding age does and 1 herdsire.  Everyone in the family                                     contributes to the care and maintance of the farm.  All of us have a job to do.  Alan is the "inventor", he is the genius                                       behind all of the feeders, pens, shelters, and fencing.  I handle majority of the day to day needs of the herd along with                                     the overall health and care.  Emily is the kid whisperer and "namer of the new arrivals".   We also have some amazing                                     animals that help with the goats. "Buddy" is our 3 year old Great Pryenese.  He oversees the safety department, by                                         patroling the partimiter of the farm and keeping all the bad guys out.  "Biscuit" is our 1 year old Mini Aussie,                                                   he keeps everyone where they are suppose to be.  "Patches" is our 3 year old Jack Russell Terrier, she is the                                                 terminator of all moles, squirrels, possums, raccoons and any other critters that decides to "visit".  "Maddie" is our 7 year old 6lb Chihuahua, she is the "General" and barks all of the orders.  Our 3 Mousekteers, Mr. Kitty, Newcomer, and our newest edition, Ms. Kitty, they keep the mice at bay.


Kidding season at Lick Creek Acres is always an adventure.  We are dedicated to constantly improving our herd with quality bloodlines, splashy color, and the most superior build that we can afford.  We learned a very valuable lesson early on in the goat business, You get what you pay for when it comes to boer goats.  We price our goats based on the following: 1st and foremost is the quality of the animals build, second is the heritage (bloodlines) that the animals come from, and last is the color.  If an animal doesn't meet our expecations, the price reflects it.  I prefer to sell goats in pairs, as they do better in a new herd, when they have a "buddy" to be with and trust.  95% of our herd are FB ABGA registered goats.  We do have a couple % does with ABGA papers, and a couple nonpapered animals.
