Goat Kid Festival
Sunday, November 19th, 2017
1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Here’s the information from the Facebook event:
Our Goat Festivals have been a big hit. For this November Festival, the kids will be full of rambunctious antics in the field and sweet snuggles. Our Festivals are family friendly, with fun for everyone! You can tour our 95-acre farm and milking parlor, play with the wee goats, meet the milking does, and taste our nationally award-winning cheeses.
We’ll have a limited menu of tasty homemade food available (such as goat cheese mac’n’cheese and goat meat tacos), and hot apple cider. Regulator Brewing will be selling pints of their fantastic beers. We’ll have old-time and folk music by the hauntingly talented Barred Owls, cider and wine tastings by Botanist & Barrel, mead tastings by Honeygirl Meadery, and more fun. You’re also welcome to bring a picnic and blanket, and find a pretty spot on the farm – – maybe near one of our ponds?
The Festival is Sunday afternoon November 19, from 1 to 5 p.m. (We do ask folks to leave by 5, since our days this time of year are long, and we and our farmhands will still need to do milking afterward.)
In order to keep our Festivals to a manageable size, and to encourage carpooling, and to rent port-a-johns so everyone is more comfortable, we charge a modest $5 per CAR ticket, and limiting ticket sales to 300 car/tickets per date. (There’s a link above to purchase tickets — click on the blue “find tickets” below our address.) You can put as many folks as you’d like into a car or van! The Festival will happen even if it’s sprinkling, but if it’s pouring rain, we will cancel. If we cancel, we will refund your ticket price and announce the cancellation on our Facebook page. You can purchase tickets to the Festival at our Square store (see link at the top of this event page).
