Our goats play a huge role in our business and our family. At Groovy Goat, we have a mixture of Alpine, Nubian and Saanan breeds.
Our goats are very lovingly cared for. They are hand milked twice daily and we are usually milking anywhere from four to six goats at a time. Each goat can produce up to four litres of milk per day, giving us more than enough milk to make all the soap we need!
Our friendly goats love visitors so, if you are in the Ingonish area, be sure to stop by for a farm experience the whole family will enjoy!
While visiting Groovy Goat, why not check out our petting farm located directly behind our soap shop? 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 turkeys, rabbits, our cows Bella and Tina, and two horses Texas and Lucky. We also have a new baby goat that was born in June - Sammy! If you luck out and are visiting during feeding time, you can try a hand at bottle feeding our newest addition! There is also a children’s playground to enjoy and a public washroom facility. 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, June - October). 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! If the timing is right, you may even be able to bottle-feed our new kid. Our animals love it when visitors help out!
**Please note that due to COVID-19, we will not be offering Farm Tours during the 2020 season. Instead, you can browse the petting farm independently and a friendly staff member is usually around the barn to answer any questions you might have! **
