Sunday,  January 16, 12:00-3:00 p.m.

$30 for up to 2 adults per farm family. Well-behaved children 9 and over welcome at no charge.

We'll go over all the basics of goat care, from shelters, fencing, feeding, minerals, understanding goats and basic goat health.

A couple important reminders for visiting the farm! 

  • We recommend wearing closed-toe shoes:

    • before entering the barn everyone is required to step through a sanitizer foot-bath

    • browse walk paths may include some uneven terrain and prickly vegetation (goats LOVE blackberries!) 

  • The farm is home to 6 livestock guardian dogs who take their job protecting our animals very seriously! Please: ​

    • don't pet the dogs, these are working animals not pets ​

    • be prepared for their barking - they're just doing their job 

    • leave your animals at home - this is for your safety and the safety of your animals, they're trained to protect our herd from predators and we don't want your animals to be mistaken for a predator! 

    • admire these awesome dogs (especially our two new puppies!) 

  • The gate code to enter the Nisqually River Forest Preserve for farm events is #6118​
