Private Goat VISITs
*Your private visit helps support our free programming. Thank you.*
The Farm at Awbury is free and open to the public daily from dawn to dusk.
The goats and chickens can be seen by visitors at any time.
Interacting with the goats in any way is only available during Public Events or Private Visits.
About Private visits
When scheduling a private visit, we recommend 1-hour visits, which allow for time in the paddock and a walk with the goats. Groups with friends under age 4 are limited to a 30 minute visit.
Private visits must be 10 people or less.
Maximum number of children in any private visit is 4, unless special permission is arranged in advance.
We are unable to accommodate birthday parties (sorry), but feel free to visit us on your birthday.
(Please keep in mind that we offer limited private visits.)
Our goats are gentle and trained to interact with a range of visitors.
Our farm has some paved pathways that are accessible for strollers and wheelchairs, however our barn is along an unpaved road, and many of the pathways are more rugged.
Please let us know accessibility needs; we are happy to accommodate!
We stagger our private visits to assure that social distancing is followed.
We wash hands and touchable surfaces before and after entering the goat paddocks.
Goats do not spread Covid-19.
*There are no public bathrooms during this time. We apologize for the inconvenience.*
*Please check our events calendar prior to sending dates and times as our weekends are often booked with mission-focused programming and we offer very few weekend private spots.*
