About Visiting

We eagerly welcome folks who love animals, especially goats, to come visit the farm. Visitors have a variety of ways to experience Scalawag Farm, whether it be getting to spend time with the baby goats while out on pasture, going for a walk through the woods with the big herd, or maybe just having a tour of the land and facilities to get a better idea of how a small dairy works. Using this site, interested parties can schedule and pay for a visit to the farm, so all that’s left to do is to show up and cuddle some goats!

We are passionate about all of the animals here, and would love to share that passion with others, while also providing an educational opportunity for visitors, so that interested parties can feel closer to where their food comes from.

Enjoy a walk through our tall pastures along a goats path outback & sometimes into the woods (depending on what the goats want) before we turn around and head back up to the barn. There are a few steep hills along the way that some may consider a hike! good footwear is a must! it can be wet & muddy depending on the season.

We recommend all visitors be sturdy on their feet. it can be rough terrain through the pastures & there are big tree roots all over the surface of the woods that you’ll have to keep an eye out for to ensure you stay on your feet!

walks can be anywhere from 60-120 minutes depending on the goats moods. expect it to be buggy, but also hope for a slight breeze to keep the bugs at bay!

walks are with our mummas (milkers) & yearlings only. no kiddos.

FAQs

Please try arrive 5-10 minutes before the walk is scheduled to start So you can read our waiver.

That’s a decision best suited for parents to make, but All well-behaved children must be accompanied by an adult & must be able to walk strongly on their own. the farm and forest terrain is not suitable for any type of stroller, and carrying a child on activities is not recommended either.

Goats are a very common domesticated animal and if you are allergic to cats and/or dogs then exposure to epidermal allergens from goats may trigger allergies.

No, dogs and other pets are not allowed at the farm.
