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!

This experience is rain or shine. Bringing water bottles is recommended.

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 was a fabulous host with lots of love of her goats and the farm. She was super flexible with her time and helped make it work with shifting weather reports. It was a great afternoon for this group of city folk!

This experience was amazing! We left feeling like we know all of these goats personally & each already has a special place in our hearts. Meagan was fabulous! She is such a passionate goat-lover and her knowledge and love made the experience terrific. She introduced us to each of the goats, gave us all the time we wanted to adore these creatures and then we all went on a beautiful hike together. She even stopped a couple time to find us special treats (crunchy leaves) for the goats. We would love to come back and we would definitely recommend the experience.

What an incredible experience I had spending the day with Meagan and her wonderful animals. This experience was better than I ever could have hoped for! Each one of the goats is special and unique! They were adorably cute, friendly and I appreciated hearing the back-stories of each one of them. My person favorite - Zoe! Loved that little breathing hummm!
