About this experience
Goat Snuggles sessions are Friday, Saturday & Sunday June through Labor Day Weekend!
These 60 minutes are about giving back to yourself! Because Self-care is NOT Selfish!
Unwind, Recharge & Reset with our 14 lovely ladies and 5 of the "kids" born in Feb/March of 2022 on our 10-acre family farm in Salem, Connecticut. Our resident "Goat Whisperer" will introduce you to our family of full-sized dairy goats; where everyone has a name and a fun story to share!
We invite you to bring a large blanket/camping chair (or borrow one of ours) and pick a cozy spot out in the field or corner of the barn. You are welcome to snag a flake of hay from their feeder and invite one of the goats to come have a snack at your blanket. She may even invite herself to your blanket for a nap in the sunshine. This is your time to sit back, take a deep cleansing breath in and release the stress of the week as you immerse yourself in the sights, sounds & smells of our farm.
Owners, Liz & Aaron will also be available to answer questions regarding life on the farm, goat care, health, differences in breeds and more!
Our NEW Farm Store is fully stocked with our all-natural goat milk products such as our creamy Lotion, sudsy Soaps, Soothing Salts and so much more! We accept all forms of payment. Debit/credit cards, Cash, ApplePay & More!
This is a RAIN or SHINE event. The goat barn is large enough to accommodate a group of 25 people or less. There is also an outdoor covered porch area for even more room.
Check your calendar and choose a date below to reserve your spot. Space is limited.

Liz and Aaron started Syman Says Farms in 2012 with a small herd of 4 dairy goats. Throughout the years they have shared their goats and knowledge with the community through 4H, girl scouts, preschool classes and now YouTube!
My daughters and I had the best time snuggling the goats! This was such a fun time! They were interacting with us & playing too. If you haven’t spent an afternoon with goats… this is your sign to do so!
Granddaughters were visiting for the first time since Covid started so I researched fun things to do and Baby Goat Snuggles” was on the list. The girls adored the idea. It was even more fun than they thought it would be! So happy I signed up!
It was an absolute joy to spend time at the farm! The goats were amazingly friendly and so was Hunter the cat! Thank you for opening up your beautiful farm. Can’t wait to do it again!
This was the most fun I’ve had in years. I came from Colorado and definitely plan on going back!
