How can I book a private event?

Nope! But their dry little coffee been like pellets are virtually odor free & we have disinfectant handy to clean up goat-related messes as they occur.

What happens when the goats grow up?

Besides being our beloved pets, Our adult goats enjoy modeling for life drawing and art classes, serving as muses for writing workshops, attending private parties, photoshoots, sound bath meditations, goat improv and more.  We enjoy offering animal lovers creative opportunities to commune with our affectionate barnyard critters. 

Are your goats rescues?

In mid 2017, we rescued four wethers (castrated male goats) from bleak futures…when you’re a male goat born on a dairy farm, the future unfortunately doesn’t always look so bright.

Happily, we found loving homes for The Nubi Brothers, Bodie & Lance. When Lance's owner goes out of town, we are fortunate enough to get to babysit him. Lance occasionally makes appearances at Hello Critter events, too! 

At the end of 2017, Billy’s goat pen burned down in the wildfires of Southern California. He was re-homed with us when he was under three weeks old. He lived in the house with us while we bottle fed him 4 times per day, before he was ready to eat solid foods and move out to the barn with his sidekick, Burlap. 

In addition to our goats, we have a rescued & retired racehorse Darby, a 34 year old rescued mini stallion Claude, a rescued chicken Dixie, as well rescued squirrels who were hand raised and soft released into our backyard.

What do the goats do in their downtime?

Chew their cud, sunbathe and hang out in the barn with Claude the mini horse, the chickens, bunnies, squirrels and cats. 

We also take walks in the park, where they enjoy climbing up and jumping off of trees.
