Have fun learning how to milk!
When you arrive, you’ll be greeted with a cup of coffee and a homemade pastry. After a nice chat, we’ll grab our sunhats and head out to meet the animals.
Out in the goat pen, we’ll learn how to hand milk our most friendly and trouble making goat, Pecan. She usually stands there very patiently, but you’ll have to be careful she doesn’t kick over the milk bucket! After you milk her, we’ll filter the milk and then you’re welcome to taste it or pour it in your coffee.
We’ll take Pecan back to her pen after milking and you can meet the rest of her herd. Coal is a handsome Tennessee Fainting Goat buck and he’ll probably be the first to come to you to be petted. Luckily, he’ll be in his own pen because boy goats are a bit smelly lol. Tennessee Fainting goats are a rare breed that has become famous for their quirky behavior of freezing when they’re excited and then tipping over. It’s pretty hilarious.
Our babydoll sheep will probably mob you for cuddles and they’re so adorable you’ll be happy to give them out. Depending on the time of year, we might have lots of baby goats and lambs as well as piglets, chicks and calves. We’ll go around to meet the entire farm and give our cow Agnes a nice scratch under the chin.
After feeding the goats, we’ll head to the chicken coop where you can collect eggs. A fun day on the farm!
