We recently acquired a buck from Open Hand Acres (Boaz). He had to be transported from Oregon to Maine. When committing to an animal sight unseen, communication is EVERYTHING. Leah was amazing at not only sending photos/updates but also her bookkeeping. She keeps very thorough notes on all of her animals…right down to when they moved pastures! Such a breath of fresh air to meet someone who is so organized and prioritizes the care and wellbeing of their animals. Boaz arrived healthy & is the absolute sweetest buck. Can’t thank Leah enough for entrusting us with this UNICORN buck!

"Leah at Open Hand Acres was absolutely incredible to work with! As a new goat owner and learning as I go, she made the process incredibly easy and has been open for discussion at all times for any questions I've had and will continue to have. Cookie is absolutely beautiful and has the sweetest personality, in my opinion that directly reflects how Leah cares for her herd, and the time and energy she puts into them! Such a wonderful farm and family! Highly recommend!"

"Thank you Leah! We love our little gal Monkey (named by my girls). She has so much personality and a sweet and gentle nature. It's fun to see how many similarities my girls have in common with our new little goats. They enjoy climbing, balancing and exploring the pasture together. She's a character! Thank you for all the time and care you put into her and the helpful advice as we're just starting out with goats. She's the best! We are so thankful for Leah in our new journey and definitely recommend Open Hand Acres <3"

"I have had nothing less than great experiences with Leah and Open Hand Acres! Their program is full of superior genetics and wonderful temperaments! The thing that resonated the most with me is how much they genuinely care about their animals health and happiness. Her goat kids are stunning and so friendly! It's very refreshing! Their goat kids area exceptional examples of the time, effort, and passion that comes as a result for doing it "for the love of the breed"!"

"This family has been amazing to work with during our mini nubian journey. Top notch communication and an above average focus on quality and care in their animals. I look forward to future opportunities to share knowledge and bloodlines. Thank you!"

"Let's start with Leah, she is so honest, accommodating and kind. Just a pleasure to deal with! We've stayed in contact since the purchase and I know I can always count on her!

Now the goat. She's got a fantastic temperament, very sweet & loving. She's got all the things you look for in a mini nubian, plus those beautiful spots we all covet! She's really the whole package. I'd definitely recommend Leah and Open Hand Acres if you're looking for a quality mini nubian and wonderful experience!"
