About this experience
Multiple Saturday Sessions June 20th - August 1st
Join us for a full 60 minutes of therapeutic and relaxing Goat Snuggles. Sit back, take a deep breath in and let go of the week's stress. Enjoy our full-sized dairy herd of 11 Mom goats and their 8 babies, all born between late February - early April!) Laugh as the goats jump all around you (and sometimes on you!) Sit quietly and one may just curl themselves up next to you for their morning/afternoon nap. Watch the momma goats nurse and care for their little ones. Owners, Liz & Aaron will also be available to answer questions regarding life on the farm, goat care, health, differences in breeds and 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.
Due to Covid-19, we are taking many precautions to ensure all guest safety. Masks are required! We will also have a hand-washing station and visual guides around the barn to maintain social distancing while enjoying the goats. If you or anyone in your household is feeling sick, feverish, etc. please contact us to reschedule your session. We recommend bringing a mat or small towel to sit on and a water bottle. We also recommend wearing boots or shoes you don't mind getting messy. This is a farm, there is poop and, if it rains, there will be mud. Plan to arrive 5-10 minutes prior to your start time but no earlier, please as previous sessions will be letting out.
This event is limited to just 25 guests. Children under 2 are free. Each child under 16 is required to have a parent also participate in the session. This is a pre-purchase event and spots are limited. Please choose your day and time slot and you'll receive confirmation via email. We cannot offer refunds unless the session must be cancelled altogether. We will do our absolute best to reschedule your day/time if available spots are open in future sessions.
Some of our farm products such as our creamy Goat Milk Lotion, Lip Balm and Award-Winning Swanky Sauce will be available during this event! We can only permit debit/credit cards at this time so checkout can be touchless. No Cash can be accepted at this time!

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!
I have not been to the farm yet scheduled for 7/18/20 so have nothing to give feedback on yet???????
i haven't gone to do this yet
I had a blast! Some of the goats were a little unsure due to the face masks we had on bc of COVID-19. Can you blame the goats for being slightly suspicious of humans that looked funny with half of their faces covered, to me it was worth it. I definitely will do the goat snuggles every year!!! Liz and Aaron are the best and as you see them on YouTube they are just the same in real life, fun, friendly, nice, lovable and so down to earth. See ya next year!!
I assumed we would have super friendly goats and some actual real goat cuddles versus chasing after them. Considering the price I would prefer the goat experiences I have had at free farms. I love what they are trying to do but their goats aren’t on the same page.
