Meet the Goats, Hike with the Goats and join us for a Farm Tour

Gorgeous Goat Creamery invites you to visit the farm and make friends with the goats. We are a small-scale commercial goat dairy, offering the freshest goat dairy products in the area. We make all of our cheese and bottle our milk right on the farm. On the farm tour, you will learn how we milk goats to make delicious cheese in a family-friendly environment.  As part of our tour, you’ll be able to get up close and personal with the goats.  You can meet the goats or take them on a hike.

Meet the Goats & Farm Tour

Our goats love people. When you visit us and meet the goats, you'll enjoy an hour learning about how we make cheese and getting to know our herds of curious and inquisitive goats. We have 39 goats, so there is lots of goat love to share. Each goat has a different personality. Some are very out-going and will greet you as soon as you walk in. Others are more shy and will say Hi after a little while. Our 39 goats have lots of love to share. We are now offering weekday AND weekend tours during the month of September. Pre-registration required. Register using the button below.

Picnic with the Goats

Reserve a picnic table and enjoy your meal in the company of our goats. The picnic table seats 4 adults. The table is nestled in the forest, a 2 minute walk from the parking area and next to the Gentlemen Goats’ yard. The Gentlemen Goats will wander over to visit you while you are eating. A sturdy fence ensures that they won’t interrupt your dining plans.

Hiking with the Goats

The hike meanders through our 17 acres of forest. The hike will cover 3/4 mile over approximately 40 minutes. Five or six of our goats will join us on this free-range hike. You'll see their mad climbing skills, some jumping and maybe even some head butts. The terrain is flat, and you should expect some uneven footing here and there. Sturdy boots are recommended. No strollers on the hike due to the rugged trail. We are now offering weekday AND weekend hikes during the month of September. Pre-registration required. Register using the button below.

Are you interested in a private event? We can accommodate home school groups, scouts, and even a group of your closest friends and family.  Please contact us using the form below to discuss a private event with our goats.

Volunteer at the Farm

We are looking for volunteers to help with a range of tasks at the farm. Our most common tasks are herd health (hoof trimming & nutritional supplement administration) and barn cleaning. These days are great opportunities to learn about raising goats and get a glimpse into the life of a farmer. Volunteers need to be ready for physical activity. Pants, boots and work gloves are highly recommended. Dates are posted in our Calendar of Events, and we appreciate an RSVP so we know how many people to expect.
