GROUP VISITS & VIRTUAL Gatherings
Private Goat VISITs
Find out about the different types of on-site, off-site, and virtual visits we offer, along with information on pricing and making reservations below. Booking your group visit is a great way to support our free programming. Thank you!
VISIT THE GOATS ON THE FARM
Get to know our amazing animals, enjoy the quiet oasis of The Farm at Awbury, and make lasting memories during your private small group visit or team building event. While you can see the goats and chickens at The Farm daily from dawn to dusk, interacting with the goats in any way is only available during pre-scheduled private visits and our public events.
Small Group Private Visits
We recommend a 1-hour visit for a small group (up to 20 people), which allows for time to visit with the goats in their paddock and to take them for a walk around the farm and arboretum.
You can purchase a gift card for a loved one to use for their own private visit here.
Small Group Pricing
60 minutes: $90 for 2 people; $30 per additional person (up to 20 people)
30 minutes: $50 for 2 people; $15 per additional person (up to 20 people)
Corporate Team Building & "Volunteering"
Your group can make a difference and support our nonprofit programming by caring for our goats and our grounds while giving your team a shared sense of purpose and an unforgettable experience. And that’s not counting the amazing photo ops!
2-hour visits for larger groups up to 50 people include activities such as walking, feeding, and caring for the goats while learning about them from their trainers. There are also many farmhand activities that are “dirty fun” involving wheelbarrows, pitchforks, and hay. With advance notice, we can accommodate a range of abilities through alternative activities like cleaning storage bins and light gardening. If this sounds like good healthy fun for you, we’d love for your group to join us!
(Please note: Your group may want to volunteer with the goats for free; however, none of our programs, activities, and services can be provided without the supervision of our trained staff and our materials. Corporate team visits help Philly Goat Project continue to provide free services for the community. We thank you for your understanding!)
Corporate Team Building Pricing
For Profit rate, 2 hours: $1,000 for up to 20 people. Please contact us for fees for additional attendees.
Nonprofit rate, 2 hours: $500 for up to 20 people. Please contact us for fees for additional attendees.
A covered pavilion that seats up to 50 people at 8 picnic tables is available at times for $25/hour on weekdays; other fees apply for weekend rates.
If you are a smaller nonprofit, please contact us. We’d love to discuss an option that works for you.

Preparing For Your Visit to the Farm
The address of the Philly Goat Project at the Farm at Awbury: 6336 Ardleigh Street, Philadelphia, PA 19138. (Do NOT put “Awbury Arboretum” in your GPS or you will end up a half a mile away!)
There is street parking and a 3-block walk in from the street to the barn.
The barn is located to the right of the greenhouses.
*Please allot time for the walk into the farm. We may be unable to accommodate your full event if you are late.*
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.
There is an ADA accessible port o’ potty and a water refill station available for public use.
Please let us know accessibility needs; we are happy to accommodate!
Weather and Scheduling:
Our coordinator will reach out to you if there is a need to move your visit to a rain date. Your guide will reach out to you the day before to confirm your visit via text. Please check the weather and dress accordingly. Be sure to wear durable, closed-toed shoes.
HAVE THE GOATS COME TO YOU
Private visits to companies and colleges are among our favorite ways to share goat love, wellness, and foster joy and engagement for a wide range of people. We do prefer to be outdoors; however, our goats are litter box trained (for the most part!), and we can go indoors. Our well trained goats and professional staff can help create magical wellness moments, you can go on walks, learn to do some tricks, create cuddle puddles, take fun photos, and help lift spirits. We are friends with colleges throughout the Philadelphia region and provide insurance, trained staff, and delight.

Off-site Visit Pricing
One time travel fee: $500 (within a 30 minute radius)
Hourly rate for 5 goats and staff: $450
Travel beyond 30 minutes of the farm requires additional travel fees for goats and staff. A minimum of 2 weeks advance notice is required for booking. We fill up quickly, so please reserve your dates early!
VIRTUAL GOAT gatherings
PGP offers a variety of styles of virtual visits for your needs, including parties, wellness, educational, and online field trips. Join us for a meet and greet with each of our goats and learn about their personalities and namesakes. Take a tour of the farm, enjoy fun tricks and cuddles with the goats, and/or an overview of our nonprofit and programs. You can ask us questions or just hang out.
Virtual visits can be hosted online using Zoom, Facetime, Go2Meeting, Skype, and more.
