Crazy About Goats – Class Descriptions

Our classes are held on our beautiful 50+ acre farm, Great Rock Farm, in Georgetown, MA. We want you to get the full affect of a true farm-yard goat yoga and snuggle experience by partaking in these events with farm animal sounds and smells all around you. Plus the kids are most comfortable when they invite you into their own surrounds. The majority of the classes are held overlook the water on a stunning grassed area with a white picket fence and flowers. And our rain location is just as remarkable: a rustic and clean 5-story post and beam barn with hardwood floors.

GOAT YOGA: Practice yoga accompanied by our baby fainting goat kids. The class is sequenced for all levels of yoga and focuses on deepening the human connection to nature in a gorgeous setting with some spectacularly fluffy and sweet assistants. Appropriate for ages 12+ yrs old, (ages 5-11 with prior approval), these sessions includes 40 minutes of gentle yoga while the goats interact with you and 15 mins of to continue to hold, pat, snap pictures, and feed goat treats. We host classes from June to October.

GOAT SNUGGLE: Not into yoga but still want to come visit, interact, and learn about the baby goats? We will continue to offer our popular event called “Seated Goat Snuggle.” It’s a 40 minute session, for those over 10+ yrs of age (ages 3-9 with prior approval), that includes seated mat time to pet and snuggle with our baby fainting goat “kids” while you feed goat treats, ask questions, and learn more about the goats care, health, and life on the farm.  Please be advised that our Goat Kids will still be jumping on YOU and they do have little horns to watch out for! We host classes from June to October. 

GOAT HIKE: Join us for an hour stroll in the woods, while we hike with goats on the farm. These events will include a meet & greet with the other goats, Dolly Llama, Dorset sheep, and other animals that may be on the farm. Some events will have a theme. We will provide goat treats to each participant (Ages 6+, 6-11 yrs old with adult supervision) and teach you more about goats and life on the farm. The walk will be a little over a mile round-trip on gravel (or snowy) and hilly terrain. We’ll be going at “goat” speed.  We host Goat Hikes from October to May. Private groups accepted by appointment.

HAUNTED GOAT BARN: a Spook-tastic one night only event, on the Farm. Upon arrival be greeted by the haunted staff who will get you checked-in. Enjoy our beautiful barn and entrance area with the graveyard and jack o’ lanterns, plus the haunted tales and creepers. You will be entranced by our haunted tales, as you interact with the goats and feed them treats. The goats will also be dressed in costumes and glow sticks and the whole upper barn will be haunted. As long as its not down-pouring, we will have a campfire with hot cider and donuts, followed by a tractor-drawn hayride back to your cars. You will  meet our other farm animals in the lower barn, the llama, horses, sheep, more goats in the barn. This is a one-night only event in October.

BRING TO CLASS:  A mask or face covering, a towel or mat to sit on that is easy to clean. Personal hygiene/safety items such as mask, hand wipes, hand sanitizer, bug spray, sunblock, & reusable bottle water.

Mats rentals are available for $5 exact cash or venmo only, no credit cards.  Previous years we were able to take pictures using your personal phones, however, at this time we will not be able to do that, so please bring selfie sticks or your welcome to take pictures of your own group. We will also take pictures and share within a week of the class on social media.

TASTINGS:  We will not be able to do tastings this season, due to COVID-19 restrictions.  Therefore, for 2020 classes that food/tasting were included we will offer bottled waters and either individually packaged snacks upon arrival or vouchers to go to a local business for a bagel with cream cheese or Small Ice Cream to use following the class.

During the event $2 of each T-shirt or Tanktop sold will also go to the charity. Additional cash/check donations can be made during the event or on the charity’s website.
