Það sem verður gert

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have one-on-one time with goats? See what it’s like to connect with them, by being among them and observing them up close, undisturbed? This is a small, intimate, therapeutic and relaxing experience, one that allows you to turn off and forget the outside World for a while.
Research indicates that interaction with therapy animals can temporarily affect the release of various neurotransmitters in the brain. Oxytocin levels (linked with bonding) and dopamine levels (involved in the reward-motivation system) are increased, while cortisol levels (an immunosuppressant associated with stress) are decreased.

Our goats are calm and have a calming and soothing effect. They are very mild tempered and perfectly safe to be around, even for small children. You will be able to feed them treats, brush and groom them, we can also teach you how to milk them if interested (seasonally) and you will have the opportunity to try their milk.
We can stay with you to answer your questions and tell you about our animals, or we can leave you with them for a private and intimate experience. Depending on the time of the year, there may be baby goats to watch, hold and play with! Also, check out my new experience, Tea in a Hummingbird Sanctuary here:

I have been caring for Nigerian Dwarf goats on my hobby farm for 4 years. I have noticed that interacting and spending time with the goats daily is significantly helping to alleviate the stress related to my job as an ICU nurse. My friends started to regularly visit my goats just to spend some time with them, experiencing an elevated mood after their visit with the animals. I also run an airBnB and I realized how much my overnight guests enjoy their goat encounters and how interested they were in learning more about them. I watched their children giggle and play with baby goats and I was amazed at what an impact they had on them.
I have decided to share this opportunity with anyone who wants to experience this joy and
connect with these incredibly empathic and sensitive animals in a relaxing, beautiful and picturesque setting.

Staðsetning

You will be welcomed to a serene, beautiful and secluded creek-side location, nestled in the foothills of the Topa-Topa mountains. You have access to the creek to relax by, under a canopy of majestic live oaks. We are only 15 minutes away from Ojai, and 20 minutes from Ventura beaches. Keep in mind, you will spend time inside an animal enclosure, animal droppings, dust or mud may be present. Best to bring a pair of shoes you can change into.

I surprised my wife with this stop along our trip. Great stop for anybody who loves animals, is curious about goats, or breaking the usual routines. Szilvia greeted us, we were pretty good on arriving at our chosen time. We followed her to where the goats are hanging out. It will feel intimate as soon as you enter the pen. They are gentle, funny, and each has their own personality. Szilvia will answer all your questions, we got to brush them for a good while. We hand fed them some grain, and if you are fortunate you might experience a bit more. My favorite goat was Benji, he is in a seperate pen but from afar he is just a great tuff little goat. Hugo is the tan goat, he will keep you on your toes, in a funny way. He muzzled my hands and ran his lips all over our hands, smelling and tasting. Things got funny when he muzzled our clothes, if its loose fitting clothes you will not notice Hugo chewing it. So keep an eye on him! I laughed at how clever he is at trying to taste your outfit without tugging at your clothes. We definitely appreciated the time we had with these beautiful pygmy beasts, kinda makes you wish for a farm instantly. We spotted some hens and asked a few questions about those as well, Szilvia is very friendly and we felt like we could have talked for hours and hours. Oh, and we got to take some great pictures, my wife is 6+ months pregnant and we found ourselves getting pretty comfortable with the goats.

My friend and I had a fun time feeding, brushing, and learning about goats. It was nice to reconnect with my inner-child and have enjoy some gentle animals. The interaction with a small group of goats was just perfect. One goat was quite the quirky character. Szilvia was very welcoming and friendly as a host. We enjoyed our conversations with her about raising goats. I recommen this experience to anyone who wants to explore some loveable goats.

This was SO much fun! Szilvia has the absolute cutest goats in the world, and it was such a pleasure to spend time with them! Szilvia greeted us in her driveway and then took us to meet the goats. Once she introduced us to the goats, she hung out with us for a little bit to make sure that we felt comfortable around them. Then, she left us to enjoy their company in private! We especially loved getting to brush the goats, which they seemed to love. Szilvia’s goats are happy and well taken care of, so that was a delight to see. They were so gentle and sweet with us, and we loved every single minute that we spent in their enclosure. It felt like the absolute perfect amount of time, and the nice shaded area was a great way to spend some time during the hot afternoon. Szilvia provided a cooler of drinks if we got thirsty, and she also showed us around her lovely property. She has a bunch of fun goat facts displayed in the pen, so it was a great educational experience as well. And above all else, it truly did feel therapeutic. We loved this special, magical experience and hope to return one day!!!

Animals were cute and playful! Szilvia provided grain and grape leaves to fed them. Goats loved to be fed and combed with a brush. The area is cool and shady, not directly in the sun.
