Baby Goat Festival

Apr 5, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Folks have been asking when we’re going to start posting tickets for our wildly popular festival days this year, so here goes, though I don’t yet have all the details as to who else will be participating. Our Baby Goat Festivals are family friendly, with fun for everyone. You can tour our 94-acre farm and milking parlor, play with the wee goats, meet the milking does, and taste our nationally award-winning cheeses.

We’ll have tasty food available, and pints of beer from our local brewer friends. We’ll have a variety of other fun things, which will vary from fest day to fest day, but they’ll include things like soapmaking demonstrations by Red Mountain Goodness, beekeeping demonstrations, music, cider tastings from our friends at Botanist & Barrel, longsword demonstrations, and more yet to come. We’ll be adding more details over the next couple of months – check back to this page. You’re also welcome to bring a picnic and blanket, and find a pretty spot on the farm – – maybe near one of our ponds?

This festival is Sunday afternoon April 5, from noon to 5 p.m. (We do ask folks to leave by 5, since our days this time of year are long, and we and our farmhands will still need to feed the goat babies and do milking afterward.)

In order to keep our Festivals to a manageable size, and to encourage carpooling, and to rent port-a-johns so everyone is more comfortable, we charge a modest $25 per CAR ticket, and limiting ticket sales to 300 car/tickets per date. You can put as many folks as you’d like into a car or van! We do expect this to sell out. The Festival will happen even if it’s sprinkling, but if it’s pouring rain, we will reschedule to a rain date, or (unlikely) cancel. If we cancel, we will refund your ticket price and announce the cancellation on our Facebook page. You can purchase tickets to the Festival at our Square store (see link at the top of this event page).

We’ll have other festival days throughout the year (see below, and mark your calendars). Those, too, will have many of the same things. The wee goaties will be a bit bigger, and still super-loving! We’ll post tickets for those on a rolling basis.

Some folks asked us for a sort of frequent-flyer pass (the “GoatFestPass”) so you don’t have to wait breathlessly for us to post the next date in fear of us selling out. If that’s your dream, we’ve got you covered this year. Scroll down on the ticket purchase page on our Square site, and you’ll see info for that!

Here’s the other dates we have planned so far for this year.

May 10 (Mother’s Day!)
