About this experience
Join us for a restorative 60-minute session of therapeutic Goat Snuggles. 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. Goat Snuggles occur Saturdays and Sundays throughout Spring, Summer & early Fall. Choose a date below to reserve your spot as space is limited. If you cannot find a date that works for you and your group, we also offer Private Snuggle Sessions for groups up to 10 people.
Our resident "Goat Whisperer" will introduce you & your group to our herd of full-sized dairy goats; including 9 Momma goats & some of their March/April 2021 babies and 1 rambunctious teenager!
We invite you to spread out a towel or yoga mat in our goat pasture or in the goat barn so the goats can come right up to you to visit and snuggle. Our spunky group of Goats are sure to bring laughs and plenty of picture-worthy moments as they jump, play, side-hop and nap right there with you! (and sometimes on you!) 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. Please wear a mask while shopping in our new Farm Store, however no masks are required while outside with the goats! 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.
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 accept all forms of payment.
