Frequently Asked Questions

 

Can you bring baby goats to our house for a party?

YES! We can take our baby goats almost anywhere you'd like! We have taken them to do corporate visits, baby showers, weddings, bachelorette parties, birthday parties, hospitals, retirement communities, schools, and street festivals.

Do you have baby goats year round, or is it just seasonal?

We usually have babies being born from late April through mid-late October. From November through April we have our babies that were born in October to take to parties or to visit at the farm. We are planning to begin construction on a barn this Summer so that we will be able to have babies born year round.

What happens to the baby goats when they grow up?

When the babies grow up a handful of them will stay and live on our farm, but a majority of them will be sold to good homes as pets, brush clearers, or lawn mowers. They will not be slaughtered, we do our very best to ensure that none of our kids end up as dinner.

What can we expect when we come for baby goat therapy?

When you arrive you'll be let in through the gate into the pasture with our herd of goats, flock of chickens, peafowl, turkeys, ducks, and two guardian dogs. You'll have the choice of exploring the farm, petting and visiting the adult goats, or spending some time in the baby goat pen.

How should we dress for our visit to the farm?

It is always cooler at the farm than it is in the valley. We recommend always planning for it to be cooler than you expect. If it has been rainy in the last few days we recommend wearing boots and clothes that you don't mind to get dirty. We always recommend closed toe shoes. Don't wear very loose and flowy clothes, as the baby goats love to chew on them.

Do you sell the baby goats?

We do sell most of them to good homes as pets. We sell the boys for $150 and the girls for $250. We sell them at 10-12 weeks old, after they have had a good strong start and have been weaned. We don't sell bottle babies because we have had too many that don't do well on the bottles.
