The North Carolina Pygmy Goat Club was founded in 1981 by a group of dedicated pygmy goat enthusiasts to promote the pygmy goat breed in the central region of North Carolina. They called their group the Piedmont Pygmy Goat Club. In the following years the club's name has changed twice to reflect it's growing membership which now includes members in Georgia, Indiana, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, even Texas and Nevada, and, of course, North Carolina.

The club's purpose is to aid and encourage the breeding, exhibition, and perpetuation of the pygmy goat breed under the National Pygmy Goat Association's breed standards; to stimulate popular interest in the pygmy goat, and their care and management; to research and study the characteristics of the pygmy goat, their breeding, husbandry; to collect and disseminate useful information concerning them; and finally to encourage and conduct exhibits for the purpose of advancing the cause of the pygmy goat as a useful breed within the American agricultural system.
