Tour a Goat Dairy

  • Apr 26, 2014 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

One of our members is hosting a tour of their goat dairy! Several of you have indicated interest in Nigerian Dwarf Goats, so this is a great opportunity to see who they are and how it's done. I've set the beginning time at 10 a.m., but the hours may be earlier. Ask Kerri for details. 

Left Foot Farm is hosting the first Family Farm Tour of the year on Saturday, April 26! The tour will include a stop at our chicken coops, where children can collect eggs and pet the chickens, and the adults can look at the chicken houses and learn about the management of the flock. Next stop: baby goats! Our Nigerian Dwarf Goats are playful and friendly, love to be held and are always a big hit with visitors. At the milking station, you can watch as an intern demonstrates how to milk a doe, and then you can try it for yourself. Nigerian Dwarf Goats are excellent backyard goats and even better milkers for their high butterfat content. We also have two alpacas, who are always curious to meet new people, so take the opportunity to pet them, feel a sample of their fiber, and look them in the eye. Our guardian dog Princess is having babies sometime before April 15, so we will have plenty of adorable puppies to play with! Finally, take a tour of our garden and pick a bag of fresh veggies and greens to bring home! We are a licensed Grade A Raw Dairy, so feel free to take a sample of the milk, try a bit of chevre, and even buy a cheese-making kit to make it at home! We encourage you to bring a lunch and stay for a picnic in the garden area when the tour has finished. The cost is $20 per family. Please RSVP to [masked], as space is limited!

    Thanks Kerri for hosting the tour of the beautiful Nigerian Goat Farm in Eatonville. We really enjoyed the hospitality and ambience, and it was very educational.
    The owner, Jeremy, offered us all a milk tasting, and the Nigerian goat milk is especially delicious and sweet. We purchased some milk, and cheese starter culture, and made our first batch of soft goat milk cheese today. We'll be back to buy some more.

    The price is $20 per family, but if you are coming alone we can do $5 per person. We have tours throughout the summer, usually every other Saturday, so there will definitely be more! I will post again when we have another tour.

    Is our Urban Farmers considered "a family"? or do we each have to come up with $20?
