Great place to get close to goats
Nov 2020
This is a charity run goat sanctuary. There are over 100 goats in the field and by the buildings, all different with their own personalities. To access the cafe area you have to walk through a field of goats, so wear boots, unlike myself and my daughter on our first visit. You can stroke the goats and buy food and then feed the goats, just watch for the collar colour and the greedy goats butting the others out of the way. There is no entrance fee but the charity relies on donations to keep it going, so try and be generous :-)

Be a fabulous goat keeper
Sep 2021
My sister-in-law and I have spent today doing the goat keeper experience - I was not sure what to expect but it completely exceeded my expectations. We were put to work and got to experience goat breakfast (in bed), cleaning the yard, putting out hay and food etc for some 150 goats. All the staff and volunteers were incredibly friendly and helpful. It is a truly joyful place and deserves heaps of support!

Keeper Experience
Sep 2021
I can highly recommend the goat keeper experience. All the staff and volunteers are amazing. They are extremely friendly and welcoming and although very busy, they had so much time for us. I was so impressed at how well the sanctuary is run and how much they all really care for the goats, their passion is clear. My partner and I have visited a fair amount of animal sanctuary's in our time and this is one of the best in that they have reached capacity but still give 100% to each and every goat, no easy task. I hope people continue to support them so they can continue the good work. I wish I lived closer as I would spend a lot of time in this happy place.

Great cause, lose the attitude
Aug 2021
Petting and feeding the goats was a great family experience. Lose the stroppy old lady (presume owner) collecting the payment at the front gate and more people might consider coming back.

Great little place.
Aug 2021 • Family
We really enjoyed this place. The goats were really fun to watch and friendly. Feeding them was also novel. The goats were all very greedy which again made it fun watching them.
Great little place.
Staff were helpful and it was nice to know that they are volunteers and give up their time to look after these funny animals.

The cutest goats in town
Aug 2021 • Couples
A very cute little place to visit. We spent plenty of time walking around petting the goats and they even have a feeding area where you can buy food to feed the goats. If you don’t mind muddy shoes, it’s definitely worth a visit - we’ll certainly be visiting again.

Wonderful Day Out
Aug 2021 • Friends
The goats are well cared for & happy. If you intend on visiting remember it is a sanctuary & they do depend on donations from the public so please give as much as you can so they can continue to rescue & care for these beautiful animals.
