Gift a Goat

Spend a Day on the Farm with Your Goat

This Program is Currently Closed.

We are so excited to watch the mama goats continue munching along as they grow the next group of kids!

Though we have chosen to care for the goats on the farm this year, we are still delighted to get to share them with you!!! 

We at Elderslie love experiences and love to give them as gifts!!!
As you start your holiday shopping, we invite you to Gift a Goat for the holidays! 
We will be gifting 100 of our kids this spring and invite you to come out for a day with them on the farm! 

Gift your goat will include a picnic for two on the farm and a day at Longfield complete with a ride on the berry ferry. 

It’s All About Relationship

Caring for a goat is an opportunity for children to find inspiration and delight in animal personalities and interactions!

This experience provides needed socialization to our baby goats at a time when they are eager to soak it up – a well socialized goat is not just nice, it’s essential to farm life! These babies will grow to be part of our herd and it is critical that they learn positive interaction with humans now – with you! 

How This Works

First: Sign up on Eventbrite!

Second: Receive a giftable card in the mail.

Third: Come to the farm for goat loving, a picnic, and a berry ferry ride!

Why is this Important?

Children interacting with real animals in a setting that has purpose is one of the most joyous and healthful ways we know to share the rich life and rhythms of agriculture and food production with our customers and neighbors. 

We hope that children will be inspired through this to find more identity with and joy in the natural world (as Worsdworth hoped), to find inspiration and delight in animal personalities and interactions (as Beatrix Potter and A.A. Milne did), and to see a part of how their food is produced with a hope that communities can become more and more closely knit to the farms and natural rhythms which sustain them (as James Rebanks advocates for). – George R. Elder
