In 2009, Gabriel went on a mission tip to Costa Rica. There he worked with Mission Challenge and Goats for God. Upon returning, he asked Dawn, "What do you think of getting a couple goats?" From that yes, the Lord has led the our family on a great adventure.
Our herd consists of Lamanchas. We show them around the state and use their amazing milk to make cheese, yogurt, and more. Our children work hard taking care of them and training them. That hard work has paid off as Isabel and Melina have won Champion of Champions at the Florida State Fair many times, with Isabel winning overall and serving as a State Fair Ambassador her junior and senior years.
