The first French Alpines were imported to the United States in 1922 from France. There were 18 does and 3 bucks. All purebred Alpines in the US are the descendants from this original group.
American Alpines are the result of crossbreeding French Alpines. As a result of all the crossbreeding, American Alpines has created one of the largest genetic pools of any goat breed in America. Today’s American Alpines are setting production records and making their mark in the show ring. They are usually a larger animal than their French counterpart. They are excellent milkers producing high butterfat and protein. They are hardy, curious, and occasionally willful but this combination of traits make them very enjoyable. They can be any color combination but Toggenburg color and markings as well as an all-white color is discriminated against. They have erect ears and straight noses.
We started our Alpine herd with a Sudbury Hill buck given to us by Art Keefe of Vermont. He had successfully raised nationally competitive Alpines and was in the process of dispersing his herd. Our first Alpine was a Jesta Farm doe. As we progressed with Alpines, we bought a wonderful doe kid from Munchin Hill. She was a big, long and very dairy cou-blanc and we had many years of pleasure showing her. We later purchased 3 lovely does from the Waiilatpu herd of Kathy Evans and Susan Calahan. We recently went back to Munchin Hill and purchased two bucks of their breeding. We also have a few TCS Farm's Alpines that are boarding with us from Christel Clum . We have decided to cut back on our Alpines and will only be keeping a few animals that have earned their retirement. We may possibly breed one or two.
