Cute little farm with animals for the kids to see and a soap shop to buy some goat soaps (yes it's a thing). Really not my type of thing but my kids and wife liked it.

Awesome little spot off the road. As an amateur soap maker I found the soaps interesting. The goats milk ice cream is very different from normal ice cream, not creamy and more like Italian ice, but good none the less.

Hi Nicholas! We certainly appreciate the lovely review, but I'm afraid you might have reviewed the wrong shop. We only sell goat milk soap products... not ice cream (although we hope to in the future!) Cheers, Shannon

It's really fun and interesting. The products are unique and fun. There is a petting goat farm which is really fun for kids and adults. I recommend stopping there for few minutes

I read about this place online in a link someone shared. I remembered the name and since my family loves goats we stopped. Quick little pit stop and they let you let the animals. Everyone is friendly and the prices are fair for artisan wares....More

I think timing matters. The lady at the cafe next door says the owners are great, so helpful. I think I got a student attending the shop, who said there are no tours this summer. This would be a great little stop for children because...More

This is a cute little cottage industry with lovely goats-milk products. They are pure and organic with no preservatives so I was wishing for smaller sizes, especially since I was flying. Bought a very nice lavender bath bomb and used it on my holiday. It's...More
