Fall Goat Snuggle events
Come and visit the goats!
Learn how wonderful these creatures can be! This is a 30 minute session on our family farm where you will be up close and personal with our goats in their play area, one on one. They may jump around and play or just chill out next to your chair. One of our goat whisperers will be there to answer any and all questions you may have. Come down to the farm to relax with the goats and enjoy the fall splendor while leaving the cares of the day behind. Times from 3:30PM to 5:45PM (plenty of lights on the farm to light your way!)
Join us for a 1 Hour guided visit with our goats! We will take you on a journey of a shortened average morning with the goats. For the first portion we will cover everything from learning to milk a goat, milk handling, feeding, care and using a microscope for parasite control. Thinking of owning goats? This class is for you! Bring all you goat related questions along!
Afterward you’ll get to meet our full-sized dairy herd and their babies born in February and March for a one on one experience. Be sure to bring a camera! If you are interested in bringing a large group, please get in touch with us via our contact page.
Beginner Cheese making
Have you ever wondered how cheese is made? This special opportunity may be just what you are looking for. Visit the farm this summer for 2-3 hours to learn how cheese is made. The day begins where we will take you through a demonstration of the process for one of the easiest goat milk cheeses to make, chevere! After that, you will participate in a hands on experience in making your very own take home farmers cheese as well as learn about Cajeta, a sweet pourable caramel that pairs great with coffee, yogurt or even waffles! If there is enough time during the class, we will also demonstrate the process of making fresh mozzarella. As we wrap up our cheese you will get to add spices and flavor some chevere to take home along with your farmers cheese and written instructions on everything you learned during the class. There will be light refreshments as well. The day will end with us showing you how we hand milk our goats as well as spend some up close time with the herd.
*This event will differ from our usual "private event" format and will be held as a group class. The class will be held outdoors and in the event of rain a new date will be chosen.
We also host private group classes! Message us for details on setting up a private cheese class for your guest list. Perfect for birthday parties, homeschool groups etc.
