Breeding the best to the best and hoping for the rest

Home: Welcome


Welcome to MapleStone Farm, home of MapleStone LaManchas. Our small herd of purebred LaMancha dairy goats  is located in southern York County, Maine. The love affair with dairy goats began in 1993 when several older does and kids were purchased as 4-H projects.

The primary goal for our herd is to have fun raising happy, healthy and productive dairy goats.  We test for CAEv, TB and Brucellosis and we have no history of CL on the farm.  All testing results are available upon request and on these pages. We practice a by the book CAEv prevention program with specially formulated milk replacer. The herd is vaccinated  every 12 months for Clostridia types C & D and tetanus as part of our proactive herd health plan. Does are given appropriate anthelmintics based on fecal testing results and season. Bo-Se  (selenium & vitamin E) injections and copper boluses are provided based on nutritional requirements assessed each year based on feed testing results.

Our goats are allowed acres of pasture and brows year round as well as access to free choice hay . All herd members are fed a mix of dairy pellet, whole grains and a commercially formulated balancing ration. Free choice minerals and sodium bicarbonate are also readily available. 

We strive for a balance of structural correctness and milk production in our does to maximize longevity. We feel this balance is essential as part of the management of our herd. For several years we were active in showing, DHIR and linear appraisal.

We participated in the American Dairy Goat Association (ADGA )Linear Appraisal program to help us to better assess the structural correctness of our herd. Given recent changes within ADGA, we look forward to our next opportunity to participate. Our historical average milking doe linear appraisal score is VG 88.

For many years we participated in  the Dairy Herd Improvement Association (DHIA) milk test to monitor the production and composition of the milk our does produce.

In addition to DNA parentage verification, we have also have been testing for genetic variants of Alpha S1 Casein, a gene associated with higher milk solids and increased cheese yield. As testing continues we would like to produce  a majority of high variant (A/A, A/B, or B/B) LaManchas. We are also going to start testing and breeding for Scrapie resistance to add to our list of goals to remain breeding responsibly.

Kidding takes place each spring and we occasionally have surplus adults and kids available for sale. Please see our Breeding  and Facebook pages for more information.

We hope you enjoy our website, please check in often as more photos and information are added. If you have any questions please email us at

The MapleStone herd adheres to a strict quality control protocol. An animal must meet our standards for production, show and breeding soundness to carry our herdname. Any animal that does not meet those qualifications will not be sold or kept in the gene pool. This is part of how we function as responsible breeders. Honesty and integrity are of utmost importance to our herd and we wish the MapleStone herd name to be associated with a high level of quality and to be viewed as a progressive herd centered on the betterment of the LaMancha Dairy Goat breed.

We occasionally accept $100 deposits for kids offered out of our proven does.  All animals sold go with a contract.

Pilau will be a first freshening 2 year old for 2019. This is a one of a kind doe, she is the result of many years of expert selection and breeding and a true achievement to which many aspire.

Alpha S1 Casein: A/E
Sire: Forrest-Pride LSA Sazerac
Dam: Glen Mythos  Paenei Rheutr (VG 89)

Oakrah will be a first freshening 2 year old for 2019. She is an easy keeping no worries kind of a girl, we love that about her.

Alpha S1 Casein: A/A
Sire: Glen-Mythos Sling-Blade
Dam: MapleStone HC Rhapport

Special chocolate kiss that she is, this powerful doe is a keeper for years to come. She is such a brat it is undeniable. It is a good thing she has an udder dreams are made of and a will to milk that goes with it. Easily making a 2280lb lactation as a first freshening 2 year old, she cemented her place in the herd.

Dam: Humble Acres T Valhalla (VG 89)

Freyja was the first Nigerian Dwarf born on the farm. This blue eyed beauty was so pretty as a kid I could not help but retain her even though I was adamant that I was not keeping any Nigerian kids! She has grown to be an easy going, quiet milker who enjoys her job. It helps she produces and appraises well. The icing on the cake, as they say, is her eye catching pedigree to go with the skills. Her paternal granddam is CH Weedy Tavern Lilly. She has been a lovely lawn ornament since abandonment of the Nigerian Project.

Alpha S1 Casein: A/A

Sire: Here Be Goats KA Close Caption

Dam: MapleStone BC Bohemianrhapsody

For Reference Only

Rhapport had a lot of challenges growing up. She was an easy favorite of the 2016 kid crop being large, structurally correct and extremely personable. Of course she broke her leg as a kid and fell behind. She failed to maintain her first pregnancy and thus became a first freshening 3 year old... not ideal but we are no longer a commercial operation and we loved her so here she stayed until she suffered a traumatic udder injury and subsequent mastitis that forced the end of her life.


DOB: 1/28/2018
Alpha S1 Casein: A/A
Sire:  J-Haven's Livin' W/ Karma
Dam: MapleStone BC Brass Quartet

Oh Housegoat, where to begin? Housegoat was an accident. Born at the end of January she lived in the house until April that winter because it was so cold. She went to daycare and would watch Annie the musical with her child charge and share in the great enthusiasm as the characters danced around. She had her own laundry basket chariot that took her to work, visit friends and family, shopping and sometimes on road trips so that all of her feedings would be on time. She loves to wear sweaters still to this day and takes every advantage to sit on a couch, chair or to lay upon an oriental rug. This goat has so much personality she could have one leg and bark like a dog and she wouldn't leave the farm. While not being the most structurally correct or even the best milk producer, she has given me two doe kids she is very proud of and brings me joy each day.

Dam: MapleStone Tuff Acquisition (VG 86)


Quartet was another powerhouse Clasic Carlo daughter. As a kid she was overshadowed by her half sisters, but we felt she would be the best of the 2011 doe kids given time to grow and mature. Quartet was smoothly blended with excellent body capacity, dairy strength and has superior feet and legs. She also had one of the the highest rear udders in the barn with the width and attachments to go with it. She has been an excellent producer of components and we have also loved her doe kids and had kept a 2016 son to use. She had limited showing due to work commitments but we hope to take her out more in the future.

Maplestone Panzer is a LARGE growthy white doe kid from 2022. A coveted daughter of Housegoat (MapleStone JK Quintessential) and home science project buck that was a cross of LifeoftheParty and Kastdemur's Loch Lomond.

Little miss Boop is stunning silver chocolate with tan points, including the spot on her nose that gives her namesake. Good things come in small packages but we are hopeful she will grow and follow in her dam's footsteps.

Many times BDIS/BU/BOB, Cariena was an amazing doe we are glad to have had here for her last remaining years with many thanks to Nestor Acres. She had a huge personality and adored people and coffee. She produced the 2006 ADGA Jr. National champion and was 4th place in her own class that year. We were fortunate to have a daughter and two sons here to carry on her legacy.
