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 6 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.

Very calming and wonderful experience. The host is super knowledgeable and lovely to listen to about all her local knowledge and goat raising experiences. The chickens were fun too!

For the healthcare workers out there, come and heal some of your burnout with these cute, funny little creatures, feed them, pet them, brush them and more. They are gentle and playful. My husband and I had a good time with Szilvia and her goats!

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.
