What you'll do

Guests will be welcomed into our barn where there will be a short explanation about how to safely interact with our goats inside the pen. We will then head into our goat pen for your "goat therapy" session! Guests are often surprised at how friendly our goats are!! Our girls are friendly, funny, curious creatures who are very smart and capable of knowing their names and learning daily routines. And since this is a working dairy goat farm every spring there will be a lot of bouncy GOAT BABIES to play with!! While visiting feel free to ask questions, we love to talk about our goats and share what we have learned through our experience as dairy goat farmers. You are welcome to take photos and share them on social media posts but please tag our farm, we love to see your pictures! We can’t wait for you to join us on the farm, meet our goats and let us show you why we love them so much! Trust me, you’ll be glad you did!!!
Other things to note:
1. Non-alcoholic beverages are provided
2. Goats like to taste things, please consider wearing long hair up and no dangling earrings.
3. No pets please unless you require a service animal and then please notify the farm prior to arrival, goats are scared of dogs.
4. There are no bathrooms in the barn, please plan ahead.
5. Please wear clothing/shoes that can get dirty.

Hello, we are John and Dorothea Sperry! I am a Registered nurse and he is a Facilities Director for The YMCA. We established our farm in 2016 out in the middle of farm country in beautiful Washington County in Upstate NY. Our farm is only an hour's drive from Albany International Airport! We have been raising goats since 2017, we started with 2 and we now have 23! In 2018 we decided to start a small business handcrafting goat milk skin care products that are available to shop during our experience. Money earned helps support our goat herd in many ways including grain, hay and infrastructure. Our farm is our happy place and our goats are our pride and joy and we want to share all of them with you!! Please visit our farm and immerse yourself for an hour in our barn with these wonderful animals, it's so relaxing! Thank you, John & Dorothy

The Barn full of Goats experience was wonderful! All of the goats were so friendly and ready to greet us, and gave us such a warm farewell. Dorothea was very attentive to us and the goats. She shared her knowledge about the life, care, and personalized stories of her goats. The place was very clean and well organized. We highly recommend this experience and follow Dorothea's guidance and you will have a great time!

Wonderful experience with the goats! The hosts were accommodating to our schedule and made sure that there was always a goat or two nearby to cuddle. Great for small children as well—our toddler loved it.

If you love animals this is an absolute must. My boyfriend and I had a blast hanging out with these incredibly friendly, cuddly and adorable goats. Every goat has their own little personality and each one is better than the last. The owners are lovely people and enhanced the experience by telling us stories about each goat. We spent an hour petting the cutest goats I’ve ever seen and it was the best hour ever.

Dorothea’s goats are so great! The barn is well kept and the goats were super friendly and fun and well behaved had such distinct personalities, it felt like we got to know several of them just in the one short hour. We’d do this again if we were nearby, highly recommend for some close up animal time.
