Frequently Asked Questions
- Where are the goat mamas? The goat mamas (dams) are happily browsing two acres of pasture, enjoying a break from their (adorable) demanding little monsters.
- What happens to the kids when they grow up? They end up in any of the following homes: 4-H or FFA, homesteaders looking to produce their own milk and milk products, pet homes and/or weed abatement homes, and serious breeders working on herd improvement.
- Are they scared when they do Goat Yoga or Goat Snuggles? They are often scared the first time they do an off-farm activity. However, this is an important part of their socialization. It helps ensure that they are good companions when they go to their new homes - and as a result are less likely to be rehomed.
- I see that the babies are drinking from bottles. Do they also get to nurse on mom? Absolutely yes! The kids are on their dams full-time for the first week, then they are introduced to the bottle. After that they are bottle fed in the early morning, then get to nurse on mom all day. Bottle feeding is important because it helps to ensure a friendly goat and provides a time every day when they can be closely examined and monitored for health.
Other Important Information
- Our goats are very curious – one of the ways they check things out is by nibbling. We recommend not wearing any dangling earrings or necklaces, etc.
- Baby goats startle easily. Guests who mistreat the goats (chasing, dropping, hitting, etc.), will be asked to leave the premises. No refund will be provided under those circumstances.
- We are only open to the public on specified days. Registration is required, we do not accept walk-ins.
- Farm tours are not covered by our insurance and therefore not available to the public.
- Farm premises are under video surveillance at all times.
