Home to Miniature Cattle & Dairy Goats
Thank you for your interest in our ranch. Carpenter Creek Ranch is owned by Tom and Natalie Epler, we are located in beautiful Forest Grove, Oregon. We are a small family farm where you will find many stunning miniature cattle and dairy goats, and some fun loving farmers. We are best known for raising sweet pasture pets, offering baby goat cuddle sessions in the spring and farm camp in the summer for children 10 and under.
Carpenter Creek Ranch, is located 1 mile south of downtown Forest Grove, Oregon in the beautiful rural community of Dilley. Our homestead is located on 20 acres of pastures, fields, barns, and trees with Carpenter Creek running through the northern side of our property.
Purchased in 2009 by the third generation of the Epler family to own the property, Carpenter Creek Ranch was established in 2018. The barn and pastures are the former home of the L Bar T Bison Ranch.
This is a modest website. A few pictures of animals with their description. If there are any goats or cattle you have questions on, please email for more images or a longer description, you might get a full novel in reply because we enjoy talking about goats, cattle, and the nuances of different pedigrees and different lines.
We also love helping people get started with livestock. Whether you are a youth purchasing your first project animal or if you have suddenly discovered these delightful creatures and all they can provide for your life, we would love to help you get started with an animal. Email us and see what we can get you set up with.
We are current members of the Miniature Dairy Goat Association, The Miniature Goat Registry, American Dairy Goat Association, and International Miniature Zebu Association.
