“the joyful sound your heart makes when you snuggle a baby goat”… its that and so much more. Snuggles, cuddles, hugs – all the things that our goats love to do, but we make it into a whole experience by taking the goats walking through our fields in any weather. We end up in the Goat Playground where everyone hangs out with the goats, lots of time for bonding with our little goaties. We dare you to leave without a smile on your face – or maybe you won’t leave at all!
