ABOUT US: We started building an Angora goat herd nearly a decade ago under the Ad Maiora brand. Ad Maiora is a Latin phrase, meaning “Towards Greater Things”. We bought goats from all over New Zealand in order to combine a variety of genetics. With meticulous selective breeding we managed to build a herd of good quality, award winning animals, showing major improvements in mohair characteristics and animal size (see attached photos).
However, good breeding only contributes to around a third to the quality of the fibre. The remaining two thirds are attributed to the health and general well-being of the animal. Our goats are well fed and taken care of, and in return they reward us with exquisite, award winning fleeces, which we then use to produce a variety of products for the craft industry (www.etsy.com/nz/shop/AdMaioraAngoras).
We currently run a small herd of goats on our small 18ha farmlet.
Our products are trackable throughout the supply chain.
