Small groups for some hands-on goat therapy

Hugs, hike and Hang with Rescue Goats

We host small, intimate groups where you can have a hands-on meet and greet with our rescues. Groups can last anywhere from 1.5 to 2 hours, depending on group size, activities and weather.

 

We start by introducing you to each of the goats (and chickens if interested) and learning more about them, their unique background stories, behaviors and interesting characteristics of the species. There will be plenty of time for hugs, scratches, photo ops and to feed them some of their favorite treats!

 

We'll then proceed to hike through marked trails on our 9 acre property with the herd, who enjoy navigating the trails and clearing some brush along the way.

 

There will be plenty of opportunities to watch the goats in a natural habitat and bond with them .... not to mention plenty of selfie opportunities.

 

We will then spend some more quality time with all of the goats in a more informal environment, so that you can have an opportunity to bond with each of them. They love the attention!

 

In colder months, we gather around a bonfire and enjoy roasting marshmallows and sipping hot chocolate while we chat. In warmer months, we'll enjoy iced tea/lemonade and vegan treats!

 

If a date isn't available on our calendar, please ask! We'd love to accommodate you if we can!

REMOTE Rescue Goats:

 a virtual visit

Live too far away? Can't make it to the farm but you need a little goat therapy? With the help of Airbnb and in response to the COVID-19 crisis, we have launched virtual visits with the goats of Frederick Farm! We aim to make you feel like you’re right here with us! You’ll be getting up close and personal with our quirky, loveable goats, and we’ll rely on your observations to make sure each goat gets some love and attention.

 

To begin, guests will get an introduction to each goat, their rescue story, and background. We will experience their quirks, personalities, and preferences up close and personal! Be prepared for lots of goofy goat facts - we are full of them!

 

Next, we'll get your input to give the goats some of their favorite treats. What do you think Marv would like best? Treat time is VERY exciting at the sanctuary and we need you to help us!

 

Finally, we’ll settle down with full bellies for some scratches and rubs. Our goats LOVE getting brushed and relaxing. Can you guess which one snores? We bet you'll find out!

 

We are so excited to share this time with you and introduce you to all of our very special rescue goats!

snowshoeing with Rescue Goats

Meagan and Warren have lived, worked  & played in the Catskill mountains for over a decade and are avid outdoor enthusiasts. They have hiked, biked, snowshoed, and skiied just about everywhere in the area.

We will start with introducing you to each of the goats and learning more about them, their background stories, behaviors and unique characteristics of the species. You'll have time for some good goat hugs, scratches and can and feed them some of their favorite treats! There will be plenty of opportunities to watch the goats in a natural habitat and bond with them .... not to mention plenty of selfie opportunities. :)

 

This experience is obviously weather dependent, so granted we have enough snow ... we will proceed to hike through marked trails on our 9 acre property, as well as adjacent trails with the goats (depending on who is up for it!) who enjoy navigating the trails and clearing some brush along the way!  Snowshoes will be provided, but if you'd rather just hike, that is fine too!

We will then send some quality time around a campfire to warm up, share stories and get in a little more goat time!

There is absolutely nothing like seeing animals in their natural element and they absolutely love hiking with on our local trails as part of our "herd". Enjoy the beauty of winter in this most unique experience to snowshoe with rescued goats!
