What you'll do
Meeting by our big barn, guests will get a brief history of the farm & area before setting out to explore the various outbuildings and pastures of Mt. Gilead. After hiking up the hill for the gorgeous views (and decent cardio!), we will check in on our adult goat herd & guard dogs, hold our baby bunnies, collect chicken eggs and play with our lively, fun-loving baby goats. Guests are more than welcome to linger and enjoy the relaxed, country pace of life on the farm and at no point will feel rushed. After romping with our four-legged friends, we'll head to the picnic tables for a fresh brunch prepared with ingredients that we've made and grown. Our family has over 20 years experience in hospitality and we know how to cook for our friends. Come for the baby goats and stay for everything else!
