We stopped in but were a bit surprised by the cost to "look" at the goats. It was hot and quite smelly - but it is a farm so be prepared. The cheese samples are slow - so have patience - but quite tasty. The little tasting room is very small and things move really slow. We were going to... More

If you like goats , your in. But I will say the free cheese samples are very tasty and they do have great food items to buy. The farm itself is fun for kids to see and the location is great for taking pictures. Beautiful hills.

Great fudge & goat cheese. Had a great time feeding the baby goats! Check with them on hours. You can even do a tour of where they make cheese.

This farm is nestled away in Strawberry on Fossil Creek Road. The setting is spectacular! We bottle fed the two baby goats, There are llamas there, but they were in the distance and difficult to see. There are a variety of goats here that love people! If you are in to bird watching you will be able to see some... More

They raise goats as well as Llamas and they are the greater attraction. Can watch baby goats being born and late in the afternoon help with the milking. Goat cheese and goat fudge is very good.

John & Joyce are two of the nicest people we've ever met. You can see the love they have for the animals everywhere. Our kids (13, 10, and 6) had the best time holding, feeding, and playing with the baby goats. What a special treat it was for our kids to hold newborn goats! It's a $5/person to hold/play with...

Worth a short stop to stretch your legs. Unfortunately, the male goats were in for breeding, and the smell....pretty awful! Spring and summer will be wonderful to see all the baby goats.

This is a great stop outside Strawberry on Fossil Creek Rd. The creamery makes fudge, cheese, soap, and lotion from the goats' milk. You can visit with and feed the goats. Very friendly staff.

Approximately 1hour and 35 minute hike up from the water fall to the strawberry dead end road or road closer sign at a very steady pace. The hike down is easy and takes approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes again at a very steady pace adding slight jog. The hike could be very discouraging and could be overwhelming at times... More
