Experience The Farm
Groove with the goats
While visiting Groovy Goat, why not check out our petting farm located directly behind our soap shop? As of July 2017, there is no entrance fee for our petting farm – admission is by donation only which goes directly to maintenance and operation of the farm. Take a stroll out to our goat enclosure to experience the sights and sounds (and smells!) of a farm firsthand. Wander into our newly constructed barn to visit our chickens, pigs, rabbits, our cow Bella and two horses Texas and Lucky. Bella is due to calf in March and there should be lots of baby goats this spring. There are also picnic tables and a children’s playground to enjoy. A perfect place for family fun, rain or shine!
You will surely enjoy observing our animals’ quirky behavior! If you have any questions, a staff member is always close by and waiting for an opportunity to chat about our groovy goats.
Don’t forget your camera as there are bound to be some great photo opportunities!
Petting farm is open during store hours only (9:30am-5:30pm during June; 9am – 7pm daily during July & August: 9am – 5pm during September & October). Petting farm admission by donation.
Feed the goats
A favorite activity among our visitors is feeding our goats. If luck is on your side, you will be here when one of our staff are feeding the goats. They LOVE treats and will eat them (very gently!) right out of your hand! Feel free to feed them some long grass too! If the timing is right, you may even be able to bottle-feed one of our new calves. Our animals love it when visitors help out!
