While visiting Groovy Goat, why not check out our petting farm located directly behind our soap shop? We sadly lost our barn in a devastating fire in 2021, however our amazing community pulled together and helped us rebuild during a good old-fashioned barn raising! While there are still some finishing touches and landscaping to complete, we invite you to drop by, check out the new barn and visit our animals. 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 momma goats and their sweet kids (born winter 2022). We also have a donkey named Winter and two cows (Bella and Tina), who can sometimes be found in the pasture across the street. Our spacious yard has picnic tables and a children's playground - 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 mid-May to November; Off season - by appointment only). Petting farm admission by donation.
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! You can also use the coin operated feed machines found in the barn. Our animals love it when visitors help out!
