Spring Gate Farm

Spring Gate Farm is located on 220 acres in Barboursville, Virginia on the Rapidan River. The farm is one of the largest cashmere producing farms in the East and is home to over 80-100 cashmere goats. We offer a full range of products including, breeding stock, companion/pets, pelts, meat and fiber. Throughout the year we have farm open houses where we offer the public the ability to see the goats and learn about their care and maintenance. We are a working farm that produces fruits and vegetables, horse quality hay and other farm related products such as eggs and honey. As careful stewards of the land and we practice sustainable agriculture which protects and preserves the land as well as our animals. The farm lies in one of the most picturesque and beautiful settings in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains just 17 miles north of Charlottesville, VA. We welcome your visit and hope you will fall in love with one of the most beautiful and intelligent of all creatures – the cashmere goat!
