What you'll do

We like our guests to arrive at the farm a little before 1pm so that we can have a short introduction before bottle feeding the goat babies promptly at 1pm. After baby cuddles and talk we move onto our dairy. Here we talk about the different breeds and history of dairy goats, wholistic dairy goat farming and how we manage our herd. Then we meet the milking ladies, where we will demonstrate hand milking and talk about the different qualities of goat milk and all the amazing products that you can make from it. You can even try milking a goat yourself! And what dairy goat experience is complete without goat cheese and we have delicious range for our end of experience tastings. This is a very HANDS ON experience and everyone is invited to touch and handle the goats. You will be guided gently and at your own pace and you will come away with a natural understanding and confidence in farm animals. Each guest will go home with a goat information booklet and a hand crafted goat milk soap of their choice. The experience takes approximately 1hour but you are welcome to spend longer on the cheese tastings and browsing all of our unique goat products.

Where you'll be

Our farm is located in the pristine far south of Tasmania. Surrounded by tea tree forest. The drive south from Huonville is all highway and very scenic. Our farm gate is easy to find with signage on the highway and there is plenty of parking available. The dairy is clean and convenient and only a little walking is involved as our goats will come to us. Most of this experience is outdoors so we are reliant on nice weather.
