What Visitors Are Saying on Trip Advisor

      This farm is charming. We had a lovely visit with the goats - they will melt your heart. So adorable. They also have a gift store that is wonderfully curated with an abundance of products either related to goats or made from goats’ milk.

      This farm is really nicely kept. We were lucky enough to see a newborn Alpaca which was neat. There was very little for us to do there as we missed the Shmurgle. There was a small gift shop with soaps which we purchased and really...More

      We took our 10 year old granddaughter to Haute Goat on the long weekend. What a fantastic time! The 200 acre farm is located just west and north of Port Hope - only about a 10 minutes drive. The dwarf Nigerian goats are cute and...More

      Good for little kids. Go for a walk with goats. Yeah I get it, they're cute. Smorgle or sporgle them (fancy word for pet them). I preferred petting the dogs. Basically a petting zoo on a farm that charges a lot. Lunch was good. Again...More

      A fun time for animal lovers. A unique farm walk and snuggle with a herd of very affectionate goats and dogs. Great hosts and a good lunch. Worth a day trip!

      Hobby farm close to the city. Great place for teaching moments with young children. Goats are always interesting, as are the alpaca and chickens. I’m partial to the farm cats and working dogs :) The farm has a number of volunteer staff from abroad. It’s...More

      The property is poorly accessible by multiply vehicles. The parking allotment is very limited. Each item, whether stroller, wagon, wheelchair, or footwear MUST be dunked in a tank for disinfection. Completely understand, yet very awkward for some individuals! The business, is expanding and has many...More

      Immediately upon arrival, our small dog VICIOUSLY ATTACKED by their large, unleashed Saint Bernard. Owners showed an appalling lack of compassion for our dog's injuries and our own grief, evening blaming us -- for not having read their homepage advice about pets (though there is...More

      I went there with my family for the first time on a Sunday afternoon. The goats were very friendly, came right up and interacted with us. Within a few minutes, a staff member sat directly across from us and stared, straight-faced. He did not smile...More

      Great fun! I smile every time I think about those adorable baby goats. My 22 year old daughter has now made 'shmurgle' part of her vocabulary for any type of snuggling activity.
