Welcome to Thistle Corner ~ Fritz Farm LaManchas

How we came to be.....first came Fritz Farm in 2012 as a 4-H project for my son. Jacob had a handful of goats and I was originally into Suffolk Sheep for projects and meat. The sheep became too much for me to handle and I turned my attention to helping Jacob with his herd.

Then someone suggested we attend an ADGA show in 2017. Hot Coco Mix, a grade LaMancha, won Grand Champion Recorded Grade, and.....I was hooked! Fast forward to 2019 and my herdname, Thistle Corner, was born.

Located in lovely Southwest Michigan in Lawrence, Van Buren County, we are easy driving distance to Kalamazoo and beautiful Lake Michigan. We try to show at as many shows as possible and are lucky to have a nice assortment in Michigan as well as access to shows in Indiana and Ohio. 2021 was our first National Show in Louisville, KY.

Many thanks to my husband. He's been here for us through the thick and thin of things. Also a huge thank you to my awesome friend, Sharon, for helping me stay focused at the shows when things get crazy and to Tammy Tullar, for being my mentor and my friend.

With both herds, we strive to produce quality LaManchas, Grades and Saanens. We pull all of our kids at birth, feeding them Land-O-Lakes powdered colostrum followed by pasteurized goat milk. Our herd has been CAE tested negative for the last 8 years.

In order to keep our numbers in check, each year Jacob and I will offer a selection of mature milkers, bucks and kids for sale.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions or if you see something you like. We can be reached by phone, text, Facebook message or email and we will get back to you as soon as possible. We hope you enjoy our new website!
