The owners were very nice and knowledgeable. The goats were friendly. Not being mean, but the place looks like a junk yard. I would have given it a higher rating if it weren't for that.

First, I highly recommend that you call first. This is not a commercial tourist attraction. This is a working farm that has built a small tourism business through tripadvisor reviews and word of mouth. We got lucky and showed up when another visitor was supposed...More

Great place to visit call first as babies may be sleeping. They have a lot of energy and moms love the treats that are provided.

Agree with other reviewer. No fee, since it's just a family's farm and not a business. They provided carrots for us to feed the goats. We ended up donating $20 I think. Totally worth it.
