Young people are encouraged to help out if they are mature and accompanied by a parent, suggest minimum age is 12. Because our goats are well trained and require a lot of careful care, volunteers are required to commit to helping out for a minimum of 4 months one hour a week or two hours every other week. Private events with the goats may be arranged via email.
