goats of the future

farming goats in community

We propose a change: farming in community, in a way that enriches land and soil, as well as human health and imagination. We raise dairy goats to live curious, social lives; to express their animal instincts; and to harvest their own nutrition and medicine. 

hike with the herd!

Goat hikes are back! Baby goat cuddle season is over but our baby goats will be hiking with the rest of the herd Friday-Sunday, June-October. Our goat hikes are scheduled to avoid the heat of the day and capture the beauties of golden hour on the farm. Hikes are leisurely and playful; we spend the first 15 minutes in the barn greeting the herd and then next 30-40 minutes hiking through orchard, field, and forest. $15/person, up to 12 hikers per session.

Fridays at 5:30pm

Saturdays at 11am, 5:30pm & 7pm

Sundays at 11am, 5:30pm & 7pm

Or book a private hike: Wednesdays at 5:30pm ($100/group of 2-12 people)

meet the dreamgoats

Join the herd! Be inducted into goat world via spring baby goat cuddles, summer-fall goat hikes, a holiday hikes + hugs event between Christmas and New Years (bring your xmas tree for recycling!) or a wintry wander, January-February. You can also become an ongoing supporter by becoming a Year of Goats or Year of Soap member, joining our Herdshare, or becoming a volunteer milkmaid/goatherd.

learn to make soap

Come out to the farm for a workshop on soapmaking! Meet the goats, learn the craft, take home your self-made soap and the skills to make more. We will be releasing more soapmaking dates in spring 2024.

Multiple Dates

Dream Shop

Adjacent to our goat barn, is our soap studio, where we craft farmstead soap with dream milk, organic oils, and local herbs. Each bar is unique, hand-cut, blended with pure essential oils, and colored with plants. With each seasonal bar, we tell the story of where we live and the plants and scents that surround our woodland dairy and our Michigan home.

we've moved to belding! 

Idlewild Barn.jpg

We've built a new beautiful barn and partnership with Idlewild Farm in Belding, Michigan.

Located between Lowell and Greenville, and a half-hour drive from Grand Rapids, our goats now live nestled between apple trees, flowers, and a drove of hogs.

Turn your goat visit into a day trip by visiting Idlewild's Fri/Sat UPick Flower Patch! Or you can camp, fish, canoe, or ride horseback at Double R Ranch. Enjoy ice cream down the road at KD's Corner or dinner, drinks, and live music at The Smyrna Bar, a few minutes away. Or continue your farm tourism by dropping by Red Barn Market with food, cider tasting, ice cream, and more farm animals down the road in nearby Lowell.
