at Coastal Farms
At Coastal Farms we love our miniature livestock. Our farm has had miniature livestock grazing its pastures for over 30 years. We love the versatility and options that come with having animals that are smaller than their full size counterparts. There are several benefits to choosing minis over standards for your home and farm.
In the near future we will be adding more in depth information about the unique miniature breeds we offer.
Currently we offer for sale Miniature Scottish Highlanders, Zebu and Herefords, Kune Kune Pigs, Miniature Donkeys and Miniature Horses & Ponys.
See our Available Animals gallery for updates on bottle babies and juveniles available.
Less weight to throw around equals easier handling and generally safer for children and families.
Smaller size means smaller pasture requirements. Not everyone has a hundred acres to graze cattle and horses. Minis can usually live comfortably on just an acre or two of land.
Lower body mass means lower feed costs. Wether its mini pigs, cattle or horses, feed bills are much less expensive with smaller appetites.
Small livestock still offer the same harvestable products as standards. Wool, milk or meat, minis provide a small farm with far more manageable harvests than full size animals.
Because these little ones have such small bodies, they produce far less waste. Waste from a full size animal can really pile up!
And of course...
They're just plain adorable!
