Welcome to Veteran's Ranch and thanks for visiting our website. The Pattison's ranch has moved from its original location in Gilbert to historic Florence, Arizona. We are now located in the far Southeast Valley of the sun near the Phoenix metropolitan area.

Veteran's Ranch raises registered, purebred Nubian dairy goats and registered Black Angus cattle primarily for the herd owners that want to give their family the very best. We carry top Nubian milk lines including Six M Galaxy, Crow's Dairy, Goddard Farm, Black Mesa, C&W Farm, Pennyroyal, Goldthwaite and Jacobs Pride among others. Our goal is to satisfy our client’s demands for excellent milking dairy goats and high yield beef cattle.  Our philosophy revolves around excellent temperament and production as well as conformation and quality. We look forward to have many Milk Star, Superior Genetics, Elite and Top Ten does. Currently we have four Elite does: SG Sparkles, SG Tia, SG Koko and Show Baby.  Some of our other does will earn their Superior Genetics designation this year. All our does earned their Milk Stars as first fresheners. Veteran's Ranch is a member of the American Dairy Goat Association, the International Nubian Breeders Association and the American Angus Association.
 
We had a clean sweep in the soap category at the 2013  Arizona State Fair. Our Wholesome Oatmeal 100% Nubian goat milk soap took Grand Champion and both the Atlantic Kelp and the Relaxing Lavender took 1st place. The soaps will be available to ship soon.

We had a clean sweep at the 2012 Arizona State Fair: 8 entries with 8 blue ribbons... Woo Hoo!!!
The winners were: Cilantro/Garlic Chevre, Monterrey Jack, Farmhouse Cheddar, Marinated Feta with Olives, Peppercorn Jack, Caramel Sauce, Snow Balls (other candy category) and our latest creation, "Nubiano" cheese. "Nubiano" is a fresh, unripened cheese that we make in ricotta baskets. The basket weave design gives "Nubiano" it's  characteristic shape and it's a favorite for grilling, grating and melting. 

The 2011 ADGA cheese competition was a great success. We placed 1st with our unique recipe, Cheta with Olives and 2nd with our Cabra al Vino. The 2011 Arizona State Fair was also a success. The Cheta with Olives, Cabra al Vino, Ruby Feta and Dulce de Leche Cortada all took 1st place. A special thanks to Todd and Kelly Bostock from Dos Cabezas Winery for their wonderful Arizona wines that were used in the elaboration of Cabra al Vino & Ruby Feta.

In 2010 we also participated in the American Dairy Goat Association cheese competition held in Tucson, Arizona. Our "Freedom" cheese placed 2nd in the amateur hard cheese division. Over 200 entries from all over the US from both amateur and commercial cheese makers were entered. We are very proud and we will continue to master our techniques. Read all about it here.

All our goats and cattle, as well as the other many animals around the farm must qualify and be used as pet therapy animals. We also run a non-profit organization called
Pets Helping Vets which serves veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD.
