Barakah Heritage Farm
Build a relationship with one of our goats, horses, donkeys or chickens either virtually or live

Do you live in the city or suburbs and cannot have farm animals?

Are you working from home, and need to spice up some boring zoom meetings?

Did you come to Barakah Heritage Farm for a farmstay or Experience and fell in love with one of our critters?

We can help you scratch that cottage core itch and liven up your virtual meetings.  You can become a Farm Friend of one of our horses, goats or even Jasmine the donkey and bond with our animals from the comfort of home, anywhere in the world.

Virtual Friends get a certificate suitable for framing, a memorabilia gift, and weekly short videos from your goat to you.  Virtual sponsors also get access to recorded virtual classes (when available) and a periodic newsletter.  Finally, your animal can join your online meeting once a month at no extra charge.

Want something more hands-on?

Missing that amazing smell of horse?  Pining for little goat hoof prints on your clothes or goat snuggles?

Take a look at our local or on-site Farm Friends relationship leases.

Which Goat Is Your Farm Friend?

Select a virtual Goat Dibs friendship or a local lease.

Virtual Goat Dibs friends pay $30/month – only $1/day – or get an entire year for only $160!  You get a certificate suitable for framing, a hoof print plaque from your goat, and weekly short videos from your goat to you.  Virtual sponsors also get access to recorded virtual goat classes and activities and a periodic newsletter.

A local lease is $500/year $353/year or less than $1.50 per day.  You may reserve the same goat each year or change goats when you renew.  The goat lives with you, and can return here for visits whenever you need for short stays or long.  Think of us as grandma’s house, where your goat can come and be spoiled at no additional cost to you while you travel or head back to the city in the winter.  You also get access to our goat educational program virtually or at the farm, as well as a free live video consultation to help you set up your goat housing, and regular mentoring while you learn to be good goat parents.  Please note that we limit this program to families within a one hour radius of the farm and breeding/milking does may not be eligible or may have special restrictions.

Which Horse Is Your Farm Friend?

Select a virtual Horse Hero friendship or an on-site Relationship Lease.

Virtual Horse Hero friends pay $30/month – only $1/day – or get an entire year for only $160!   You get a certificate suitable for framing, a braid from your horse’s tail, and weekly short videos from your horse to you.  Virtual sponsors also get access to recorded virtual horse classes and activities, and periodic newsletter updates.

You can also select one or more horses to lease on site and make part of your family.   Leases are only $66/month or $624/year $416/year!  Please come meet the horses before choosing.  You can change horses at any time.  The decision to work together should be mutual between horse and family.

More than one family may lease the same horse, but online scheduling makes sure you have personal time with your animal when you choose  (We do reserve the right to block off certain times for special events at the farm and we ask that you respect the animal’s daily routine as much as possible.  Lacey especially considers nap time mandatory).  Just message us weekly to request your days/approximate times, and we will update the public online calendar.  We understand that life happens, and if you need to change your time or day, just let us know so we can update the calendar.   The schedule is open for lease time Saturday through Thursday (we are closed on Fridays) from 12 noon until 5pm.  If you need a different time, please contact us.

You can schedule time to just come to the farm and relax with your horse, volunteer for stall cleaning or other projects, or share activities with your horse, or even ride your horse (after you have completed enough lessons to be safe riding without an instructor).  You can have the relationship benefits of horse ownership without the expense, obligations or time demands.

Is Jasmine Your Farm Friend?

Select a virtual friendship or an on-site Relationship Lease.

Virtual Jasmine friends pay $30/month – only $1/day – to get a certificate suitable for framing and weekly short videos from your horse to you.  Virtual sponsors also get access to recorded virtual donkey classes and activities, and periodic newsletter updates.

You can also lease Jasmine and make her part of your family here at our farm.  Please come meet Jasmine before committing.   The decision to work together should be mutual between Jasmine and your family.
