Tour of Our Place on the Mesa (and Goat Playtime)

  • Jul 27, 2013 · 12:00 PM
  • Our Place on the Mesa

Did you know there are farms in Monument? Denise and Paul Engstrom of Our Place on the Mesa (formerly called Sparrows Nest Farm) raise goats, sheep, chickens and rabbits just west of Old Monument. They offer a milk share program of the creamiest goat milk I've ever tasted.

Click here for an article I wrote about them and some cute goat pictures!

Join us for a tour and some playtime with their friendly, sociable goats! The herd includes Nigerian Dwarf goats, the type that may soon become legal in Colorado Springs.

If you like animals, if you're thinking of adding some goats to your family or if you want locally produced, raw milk that tastes like vanilla ice cream, you'll enjoy this afternoon on Denise's farm!

Update:  I hear Denise will have real, homemade ice cream for us to try!  Don't miss it!

    I would love to go. Anyone going from the Manitou Springs area? I am car-free and would very much appreciate a ride.

      Elise, I saw you biking at Uintah Gardens the other day. Is it hard for you to get there? I could easily pick you up at Mountain Mama.
