Have fun learning how to milk!
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, Gypsy. 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 Gypsy 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.
Tour time: Roughly an hour or so
We had the best time touring Serina’s farm and learning how to milk a goat! We fed her cows and horses, played with baby goat and sheep, and after milking the goats we had amazing donuts with coffee and fresh goat’s milk. We will definitely be back next time we’re in Big Bear!
Highly recommend this lovely tour to everyone of all ages. Serina the host was super personable, knowledgeable and caring during the entire time on the farm. We got to milk goats, interact with many different types of animals & learn new facts about what it takes to raise animals & run a working farm. Would highly recommend!!!
Belle expérience avec un accueil chaleureux et une ambiance conviviale. Je recommande grandement cette activité pour les familles avec enfants. Ceci a dépassé nos attentes. Le lieu est magnifique.
