(Formerly Zippity Zoo)
Our farm is located just west of Shelby, NC in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.
We are a USDA Licensed breeder of African Pygmy Hedgehogs and also breed Nigerian Dwarf Goats.
We have over 20 years of experience raising and breeding many species of exotic and farm animals. From 2000 – 2007 we operated a wildlife educational business called Zippity Zoo and took our animal ambassadors to schools and other events for the purpose of educating the public about these unique and wonderful animals. In 2007 we could no longer balance the demands of that very successful business with our family demands and decided to just focus on breeding our two favorite animal species: African Pygmy Hedgehogs and Nigerian Dwarf Goats – a very odd combination for sure!
We strive to improve every species of animal that we breed, focusing on health and temperament in our hedgehogs. And in our dairy goats, confirmation and milk production are very important.
