About Us

Tide Land Dairy Goats is a family owned Grade A goat dairy located in the damp Pacific Northwest in Tillamook, Oregon. Family has always been an important part of the Rocha family and when it comes to the dairy business, the two go hand in hand. Tide Land Dairy is a subsidiary of R & R Dairy, a third generation cow dairy and family partnership. The family partnership consists of mother, Jody Rocha along with her son, Joe Rocha and wife, Sarah Rocha. Already grooming for the fourth generation is grandson and nephew, Ryan Rider. Tide Land Dairy Goats is operated by Joe and Sarah Rocha along with three of their four boys, Scott, Brent and Blake. Joe oversees the herd, while Scott and Brent do the daily chores and milking, and Sarah raises the kids. You can always find the youngest of the four, Blake, at a show or on the farm with one of his favorite breeds, the Nubian. Scott and Brent can always rely on their older brother Grant to help out with the relief milking whenever they find themselves in a bind.

This venture and love for goats started as a 4-H Project with father Joe in the heart of the Central Valley in the small town of Lemoore, California. This small 4-H project turned into a large project where Joe was milking more than a few goats by hand before and after school. In 1993 when the family made the decision to move to Tillamook, Oregon, the small herd was dispersed. His love for goats and the desire to have a goat dairy never went away and soon that love for goats was passed down to his kids.

Their story begins in 2003 when they brought home one of their first Toggenburg does. This too started as a small 4-H Project and grew quickly to a large 4-H Project and in 2012 became a Grade A goat dairy. Currently Tide Land is milking 70 does twice a day with a 10 pound herd average which allows them to meet their current 400 gallon per week milk agreement. Any future demands for milk supply can easily be met at their current facilities with no capital outlay. Tide Land has the capability of producing up to 400 gallons of milk per day without expansion.

Tide Land goats are grazed year round on the luscious green grass of Tillamook , Oregon, famous for producing prize winning cheese, notably the award winning “World’s Best Medium Cheddar” of the Tillamook Cheese Factory. Not only the luscious green grasses of Tillamook County attribute to making prize winning cheese it takes breeding. The breeders at Tide Land dairy goats primarily being Joe, Scott, and Brent Rocha attempt to breed animals in order to succeed in the show ring and in the milk bucket. They currently raise and breed Lamancha, Saanen, Alpine, Nubian, and Toggenburg dairy goats. Tide Land is a 100% ADGA registered herd that participates in DHIR and Linear Appraisal. As a herd they focus on using and combining genetics from multiple successful herds on the West Coast and creating their own type and style. They strive to breed healthy animals therefore the herd follows a strict CAE & CL prevention program and are given yearly CD/T vaccinations.

As if the dairies aren't enough to keep this family busy, Joe is currently serving on the board as Chairman of the Tillamook County Creamery Association. This is his third term as Chairman and prior to this position he served as a Director. Sarah stays busy not only with her responsibilities of raising the kids, she is the manager of the calf operation at R & R Dairy, and stays involved with all four of their boy’s activities. Scott’s interests stay focused on the goat dairy all while being a successful high school student. Scott is a senior at Tillamook High School, President of Tillamook FFA and his future plans are to attend Oregon State University pursuing a degree in agriculture. Brent has not only a love for the cows and goats but he and his horse Trigger are actively involved with the equestrian team at Tillamook High School. Brent will be a sophomore at Tillamook High School, he is Vice President of Tillamook FFA and also plans on attending Oregon State University in the future. Additionally Blake helps around the goats, and loves his Nubian does. Scott and Brent along and occasionally Blake travel the Western show circuit where they do very well in this large competitive circuit. We have continued success in developing Permanent Champions, Linear Appraisal, and DHIA.
