Kaylie Piver was
raised on a dairy goat farm. Her mom bought
her first goats to help serve as a source of
milk when Kaylie and her brother were young.
Those two milk goats quickly grew into
Phantasma Dairy Goats, a family run farm,
that initially consisted of a heard of
Nubians which slowly turned into LaManchas
and Nigerian Dwarfs with a small smattering
of everything in between.
began showing at age five. She has many fond
childhood memories of driving around the
Pacific Northwest with her mom attending
goat shows. Kaylie's first experience
with miniature dairy goats came as the
result of an accident, following the escape
of a Nigerian Dwarf buck. That
accident produced Kaylie's first Mini
LaMancha, who would go on to become her
first finished Grand Champion miniature
dairy goat. This sparked a love of mini's of
all breeds and Phantasma Dairy Goats quickly
became Phantasma Miniature Dairy Goats.
Raising goats was truly a labor of love,
but when Kaylie was 14, it was decided that
her family was ready for a break and the
heard was sold. Kaylie has stayed connected
to the goat world through attending local
shows. She had the honor of judging at the
Wine Country Classic in 2011.
