What's in a Name?
The herd name Jug Tavern was chosen because of the area in the early 1800s. Today, the town of Jug Tavern is now Winder, GA.
Rock-Point Farms was named simply for our location in Georgia. We are located in an area that has a lot of granite rock, hence Rock-Point Farms.
to our Farm!

Thank you for your interest in breeding stock from Jug Tavern/Rock Point Farms. We breed both Saanen and Oberhasli dairy goats in the rolling hills of North Georgia. The Oberhasli were just added to the herd in 2008 and we are enjoying their wonderful but mischievous personalities very much. We are also enjoying the addition of color to our all white Saanens. We started breeding our Saanens 30 years ago in a grading up program. Every American we have to day descends from one single doe, which with great reverence and affection we remember simply as “White Mama”. From her impact and the influence of her daughters, we have had an unparalleled advantage in general appearance over the average the breed. Because some of these first few animals did not look as breed specific as we would have preferred, including some of the purebred stock with roman noses and sable color, we became preoccupied with breed type. Our quest is to build animals that not only define the look and style of the breed, but also possess that effortless movement and grace that only ideal general appearance can give.
|The past several years have been almost dream like and surreal, in the continuing vision of Jug Tavern Farm. With SGCH Rock Point Holly Golightly 2*M FS-93 (EEEE) taking the Reserve National Title in 2007 and Her sire +*B GCH Rock Point Man After Midnite the 2008 National Premier Sire we have so much to be thankful for. Our farm won 5 of the top 10 placings in the yearling class at the 2008 National show. Zenyatta (also FS-93 (EEEE))won the aged doe class as well; and the Judge, Jennifer Lynn Bice made the comment that Zenyatta was the most structurally correct Saanen that she had ever seen. The future is so bright in our breeding program and we are truly excited.|| |

| Herd Health|
We work very hard to keep the herd as healthy as it has been. Of course, going to shows is the best way to pick up disease, but with good nutrition and a battery of vaccinations and a little elbow grease, we continue to enjoy a high degree of health in the herd. We test for CAE through Washington State at least 3 times a year and are very serious about a negative herd. We still dam raise a portion of the kid crop and bottle raise babies out of does that are sold. If you prefer a different management style for your kid, we can make arrangements.

If you are interested...
We prefer that you come to the farm to pick up your kid because you get a more accurate picture of the animals and its relatives. If you cannot find a way to make it to the sunny south, we can offer you information by phone or via email.
We can ship out of Hartsfield-Jackson International Atlanta Airport at 6-8 weeks. The price of the kid does not include shipping or health papers.
We require a $100 deposit on ordered kids with the full amount (including vet expenses and shipping costs) due before shipping. If the kid you select is not born, we ask that you make a second selection, or we will refund your deposit.
