What you'll do

We'll start exploring the farm on foot, climbing our small "mountain" and taking in the view. Then we'll head down and greet the goats you'll be feeding. Their favorite leaf is mulberry so we'll save that one for last, as we cut and carry a few limbs for them to nibble on. The goats are super friendly and will eat right out of your hand. Lastly, we'll walk through the rainforest and urban garden, tasting the tropical bounty along the way.
Other things to note
Don't forget walking shoes and a hat! The Florida sun can be hot.

I've been giving tours of this amazing place for 12 years and have learned so much by working alongside some incredible staff members. I'm passionate about giving people experiences that challenge their views of the world and inspire them to go help someone else. I'm a Native Floridian and have traveled to more than 20 countries learning about sustainable agriculture and community development. I'd love to take you along as we feed the goats and maybe grab a snack for ourselves along the way.

We loved our tour through the farm and specially feed, hold and pat the goats. Danielle is amazing! She explained everything we want to know about the goats, plants, fruits and vegetables. The nature is magical here. Also, we loved to learn about the job they do. I super recommend it! It is such a great experience for the whole family!

what a great place to spend a few hours and learn about all manner of plants and food crops that are grown around the world. These people dedicate their lives to finding ways to improve crop yields in developing countries without the use of damaging pesticides or herbicides. And, the most amazing part of all this is that they share their knowledge for FREE!

What an unique experience. I believe we got more than we expected as, we learned about sustainability, ECHO’s mission and of course had a great time interacting with the goats. We got to see different animals and try different fruits they had growing on the farm as well. Danielle is a wealth of information and truly loves her job. We recommend this tour.

Recommend - whole family loved it (even the teenager). See gorgeous plants and feed some goats. Also see sheep, rabbits and naked neck chickens. Taste lots of nice fruits from around the world. Cool tour.

Went on this experience and was definitely something even better than i thought it would be. It was a fun experience and teaches you a lot more about the environment and how they are helping others around the world. Before coming here I wasn’t really sure what ECHO was or the concept of it all, but Danielle was able to capture what it was beautifully. Very different experience, but one I’ll remember forever! Also the goats are super cute and very friendly!
