We are a group of farmers and breeders who are passionate about angora goats and mohair.

Angora goats produce mohair which can generate returns that are six times higher than cross-bred wool on current pricing.

There is always a demand for more mohair.

We are able to assist angora goat farmers and lifestyle block owners in many ways.

  • Contacts and advice to help you get the best price for your mohair.
  • Training and workshops on animal care and best practice.
  • Shearing and fleece preparation.
  • Showing animals and fleece.

 

26th October 2019. Rangiora Show

The spring show season started with a beautiful day for the Rangiora Show. Thanks to all our helpers who setup the animal and fleece exhibits and helped on  the day, not least Nicky, Glenn, Carolyn, Oliver, Pam, Chris and Veronica. Congratulations to Johann, Veronica and Glenn for their success in the competition and a huge thanks to our judges on the day, Ray and Donece.

The angora goat is a herd animal that thrives in groups of 5 or more. They are farmed commercially throughout NZ and there is always more demand for the mohair fibre they produce.

If you’d like more information about farming angora goats please drop us a line.

 

30th March 2019. Oxford A&P Show. Another beautiful autumn day for the show with no wind and blue skies. Good fleece and animal entries and many thanks to our judge Chris S. and assistant judge Emily G. who did a great job helping to judge at her first show. Congratulations to Glenn G. who took home all four of the pieces of silverware on offer!

20th October 2018 Rangiora A&P Show. Perfect spring weather drew out big crowds at the show today and we had good entries in our animal section (12) and excellent entries in the mohair (37 fleeces). Competition was therefore tough but luckily we had an excellent judge in Mark Ferguson to sort out the kids from the bucks so to speak. Many thanks to him for sharing his valuable expertise during the judging and afterwards in the debrief. Also thanks to all the farmers who entered exhibits and to everyone who came along to watch.

31 March 2018 Oxford A&P Show. Despite some slightly temperamental weather there was a big crowd at today’s show and a lot of interest from new goat farmers. Thank you to The Mohair Store for providing the prizes for our annual raffle- a beautiful mohair throw and a wrap.
