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 (beginners are welcome too!!), and focuses on deepening the human connection to nature, nurturing communication with animals, as well as fostering mindfulness, breath, and meditation all in a gorgeous setting with some spectacularly fluffy and sweet assistants. Appropriate for ages 12+ yrs old, (ages 3-11 with prior approval), the session includes 30/40 minutes of gentle yoga while the goats interact with you, and a 20 min cool down seated poses while you continue to hold, pat, snap pictures, and feed goat treats.

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 1 hour session, for those over 12+ yrs of age (ages 3-11 with prior approval). This is 1 hour session includes 45 mins of 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!

GOAT HIKE: Join us for a stroll in the woods, while we hike with goats and welcome spring to the farm. These events will include a meet & greet with the goats, new goat kid, Dolly Llama, Dorset sheep, and our baby lambs. Some events will have a theme. We will provide goat treats to each participant (ages 12+, 5-11 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 and hilly terrain. We’ll be going at “goat” speed.

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.
