This was well-done despite the potential for corneyness! The goats are very well treated and "well fed", they give a new meaning to "free range". You can buy some goat food in an ice cream cone for 50 cents. Naturally, there's a gift shop, place...More

Take a step back in time as you enter the general store. Beyond are wonderful Farmer's Cheese, local hand-made jewelry, arts, crafts, plus clothing. Check out the grass on the roof and be sure to use the "bubble wand" to recreate childhood memories. Friendly staff.

It was really a fun and cute stop. It was worth checking out. We got sandwiches, the wife and kids got fresh made ice cream(they made it with liquid nitrogen) and we fed the goats.

It kind of stank, and was in a poor location. It was a novel place, with grass roof and goats, but all the merchandise was overpriced. Probably had something to do with their going out of business.

A great spot for lunch or ice cream with sprinkles. Children can watch the goats from ground or roof level and can dig through dirt for quartz. Souvenirs are reasonably priced. Staff enjoys family visitors.

This place is no longer open in Helen. The only one open now is located in Tiger, GA. When it was open, we loved to take the kids here, all kinds of great goodies!

This was a funny little roadside stop that reminds me of old school roadside America. My husband and I agreed that the fudge in the shop was the beast fudge we have ever eaten, hands down! They have tons of flavors made fresh everyday. We...More
