What you'll do

We will start with a tour of the smallholding and see where the goats live and meet the adults and delightful goat kids. You will see their paddocks and goat houses and enjoy their company, and after sharing some insights into how to care and keep these delightful creatures, we will aim to show some basic husbandry skills and take them for a walk. You can handle the goats if you want to, or just stand back and watch. The goats love to graze and enjoy nothing more than being taken in the sunshine to a nice tasty hedge for a snack! After the goats have had their treat, we will all go back to the farmhouse and have cake and coffee or tea and I can talk to you about how the beautiful fleece can be transformed into gloves, hats, jumpers and demonstrate the equipment needed. We love our goats and hope you do to. Beginners are welcome, and if you are an experienced spinner you are welcome to bring your own wheel or try mine. Sunday January 27th is a SPINNERS SPECIAL and is aimed at experienced spinners, bring a wheel, try some mohair and meet the goats. Please contact us if you would like alternative dates or to discuss your need

Imogen

We started keeping goats nearly 20 years ago and care passionately about keeping these delightful angora goats and the wonder of turning fleece into garments. We also now show the goats as they love it and we have found meeting the public at shows and seeing their delight at hearing about the goats has inspired us to share the goat experience with you close up.
