What you'll do

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 9 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, photo ops and to feed them some of their favorite treats! Everyone leaves with a small goat fun fact booklet and 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!

*Please note that there is no public restroom on-site.

We have cared for rescue goats for over 7 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 seven 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, Catskill 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!

We had SO much fun at the farm meeting the goats. All the goats have their own personality and were very loving and gentle. Meagan was an awesome host, and had lots of fun goat facts and puns for us. I’d recommend this adventure for anyone looking to get out of the house and experience nature with some furry friends!

If you're looking to hang with some cool goats, this is the experience for you! Meagan made us comfortable around them in no time at all, and we felt like close friends with all the animals (except maybe the roosters) by the time it was over.

Meagan was an amazing host, and her goats are so friendly! Loved this experience to interact with friendly goats and learn more about goats and sanctuaries for them. This was certainly the most memorable part of this trip in the Catskills

It was definitely a GREAT experience! Megan is very friendly and such a good story teller of all those lovely goats. Got the chance to take a walk with the cute animal friends and spent some quality time with them. Love the experience!
