Here’s the information from the Facebook event:
Our Goat Festivals have been a big hit. For this December Festival, the kids will be full of rambunctious antics in the field and sweet snuggles. We love to put Santa hats on the goaties this time of year . . . you can get into the spirit of it too! 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 little bonfire and you can roast up some marshmallows.
We’ll have a limited menu of tasty homemade food available (pumpkin mac’n’cheese and goat meat chili and cornbread and citrusy slaw). Regulator Brewing will be selling pints of their fantastic beers. We’ll have old-time and folk music by the hauntingly talented Barred Owls, soapmaking demonstrations by the Triangle Blacksmiths Guild, cider and wine tastings by Botanist & Barrel, mead tastings by Honeygirl Meadery, and more fun pending. 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 December 17, from noon to 4 p.m.
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. Advance ticket sales end the evening before the event; day-of tickets are $10/car.) 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).
***Also – please note — while we love dogs, please leave your dog at home.***
