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, and photo ops. 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.
Other things to note
This experience is rain or shine. Bringing water bottles is recommended.
Please note that this is a private residence, and while we're happy to have guests use the bathroom, it would be helpful if guests could stop before arrival as bathroom breaks take away from group time with the goats.

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!

Meagan did an incredible job with this experience. She made it such a joyful time for the group of girls I was with. The goats were so fun and sweet and spending time with an incredible person like Meagan was a perfect added touch. Would 10/10 recommend this experience!

It was a magical experience! Meagan created an inviting environment where we got to learn about and meet some cute goats. The love and care Meagan has for her goats is so apparent but how affectionate she is with them and vice versa. It was a wonderful afternoon!

My husband and I found this activity and decided to go for it and do not regret it! Meagan was so knowledgeable and taught us so many facts about the goats and the hike with the goats was a great experience.

This visit was even more fun than we expected. Every goat is friendly and ready to be interacted with on this scenic and woodsy hike. You get ample time both walking/hiking and getting to know each goat.

My girlfriend and I had an amazing time! Meagan is awesome and the perfect host, you can tell how dedicated she is to all the animals on the farm. It was an amazing experience to hang out with all the goats and go on a nice nature walk to help them forage for food. It was a wonderful adventure and we hope to visit again soon.
