Það sem verður gert

Did you know that spending time around animals reduces stress and increases feelings of happiness? You can double that when they are rescued goats!

Come spend outdoor time in a small group with ample room for social distancing to meet some of the most affectionate goats there are. Visitors will get to meet and learn about each goat and breed as well as their rescue stories, behaviors and unique characteristics of the species. We are loaded with goat fun facts and corny goat puns to add a little laughter into our day!

You'll also become part of the herd when we proceed to hike through marked trails on our 15 acre property with the goats, who enjoy navigating the trails and foraging along the way. Watching the goats in a natural habitat and bonding with them is truly magical.

We end with extra quality time with all of the goats, who love lots of attention, allowing for plenty of hugs, scratches, and photo ops. Everyone leaves with a sticker of their favorite goat.

This experience is fun for all ages - we have an equal amount of adults and children. If a date or time isn't available on our calendar, please ask! We have an open schedule and would love to accommodate you if we can.

Other things to note
This experience is rain or shine. Bringing water bottles is recommended.

We have cared for rescue goats for over 9 years. After our first goat wandered onto our property after being "set free" by a local camp, we constructed our current animal enclosure and have grown our "family" to eleven very friendly (and spoiled) rescue goats. Each one comes with a different rescue story, from being seized from a "backyard butcher" to a defunct petting zoo operation, we will share each narrative with you during your visit. I am a supporter of, and have collaborated with, Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary and Farm Sanctuary in both receiving our rescued animals (we also have 19 rescued chickens!) and caring for them. We are excited to share their stories with you!

This experience was absolutely fantastic. I don’t even know where to start, I had a tiny bit of trouble finding the driveway, but we were there just after it had snowed. Once we figured it out, we were greeted by Meagan’s lovely father and his adorable and friendly dog. We then met Meagan who offered us warm drinks and a seat by a cozy fire! Meagan is friendly, knowledgeable, and radiates love for the animals. After a quick welcome orientation, we went in with the goats. We got to pet them and cuddle with them. The hike was a bit of a climb, though again it was covered in snow. The goats are so fun to walk with, they walk with and around you. It’s great!!! After the hike we got to spend more time petting and cuddling. Fun gift shop too!! Spending time with these beautiful, sweet, and intelligent animals is amazing. Meagan is so amazing for rescuing and really loving and caring for these animals. It’s such a worthwhile experience. I’m definitely doing it again in the spring/summer!!! See you soon!

Had the most fun with Meagan and her goats! We hiked through the snow around the property and it was so much fun have the goats along with you. You spend enough time with all of them that you learn their story and personalities. Absolutely recommend! PS - goats are goats and will head butt you.

We had such a lovely time meeting Meagan and the goats. The goats were sweet, the hike was enjoyable and we were provided with crampons to use to improve traction on the ice. There was a fire to relax by and warm up and warm beverages to enjoy as well! Highly recommended.

This was such a magical experience! The property is beautiful and Meagan was so warm and welcoming. She really loves and knows these goats and they all have unique stories. We had a great time hanging with the goats and taking a hike. Loved the warm drinks since it was an especially cold day. Can’t wait to come back this summer !
