What you'll do

Visit our peaceful, natural, and unique farm setting! Spend time meeting our menagerie of critters as you make your way through the farm to our baby goats! Put life on pause as you enjoy an hour and a half of tranquility in a secluded area on our farm while cuddling cute baby goats! After some initial cuddle time, we’ll introduce you to the rest of the herd. You can even take the goats on a forage in the woods while walking a peaceful nature trail, if you’d like!
Other things to note
Larger groups may be accommodated upon request. The Goatie Cuddle experience is best when tailored to smaller, more intimate (rather than mixed) groups.

My family and I own a funky, off-grid goat farm which is located between the Adirondacks and the Catskills (please map this from your location prior to booking). Throughout most of the year, I offer “goatie cuddles” - this is a chance for people to visit a unique farm setting, slow life down a little bit, enjoy nature, relax, and de-stress while cuddling a baby goat for a therapeutic hour

This was such a fun experience! Rick was so accommodating and helpful. He took us around the property, introduced us to the goats, showed us the safest places and ways to feed them. He provided hot apple cider, animal crackers, water and a warm camp fire. The property is so fun and unique. We hope to come back and stay for a weekend in the yurt!

What an unbelievably magical experience! We loved every moment at the farm. We loved cuddling, feeding and taking the goats on a walk; loved the cookies, apples and hot cider; loved the cozy bonfire on a cold evening; loved jumping on the trampoline; loved the amazing tree house; loved noticing the love and care put into every detail on the property; loved hearing about the farm life and animals;. And over all, we loved the kind and generous hospitality, and sentiment of calm and peace flowing all around! We hope to have a chance to stay there overnight in the future. We are grateful that this gem of a place was shared with us!

The goatie cuddle was a great experience for my entire family, from our 70-something year old grandma to my 11 and 4 year old kids. The goats were friendly, allowing us to pet, cuddle, and pick them up. We learned a lot about the goats themselves and were thrilled with the snacks (water, animal crackers, apples, which ended up being fed to the goats, and delicious hot apple cider). The kids used the awesome tree house and one of the smaller goats followed them up! We hope to be back to stay overnight in the yurt and to visit the goats again!

mariaville goat farm is magical and enchanting. we arrived almost ,40 minutes early for our time slot but rick was very accommodating. the goats were so very tenderhearted and cuddlesome. although our child was terrified of the goats, everyone else in our group really enjoyed them and the whole place was just enchanting. extra kudos for the hot apple cider and animal crackers. can't wait to come back and try the yurt stay too. the farmstuffs for sale is also a gem thank you so much!

One of the most peaceful heart warming experiences I could ask for. What a perfect way to spend a birthday, even if it was a bit nippy on the day we visited—just more reason to cuddle with the goats! The space set up is awesome, something for the old souls and kids at heart alike. The tree house deck is the coolest! Ed is an incredible dear and attentive host, could not thank him enough for making our time with the animals comfortable, safe and as warm as possible. Definitely will come back to visit! Will not forget this special experience. Goats! 😍
