Barakah Heritage Farm

Playtime With Goats

Playtime with fun friendly fainting goats.  Learn about the breed and it’s history, and meet the herd.

Categories: ,


Learn about Fainting Goats with The Energetic Goat author Carrie Eastman.
Guests will arrive at the main barn (and likely be happily greeted by our giant white fluffy livestock dog Runa). After a brief orientation to note bathroom facilities (outhouse) and answer initial questions, the guests will be introduced to the herd in their pen.   We provide treats so the guests can hand-feed the goats. While the guests are enjoying the goats, Carrie will give the breed history and current status of the breed, as well as talk about shows, production goats, and heritage preservation, the 3 branches of Fainting Goat breeding. Finally, Carrie will talk about Barakah Farm’s unique approach to goat care, practiced on only a handful of Fainting Goat farms and described in her book The Energetic Goat. Guests are invited to ask questions at any time during the discussion. Finally, when the treats and attention run out, the goats are let out to graze. Carrie will answer any last questions at the main barn. Selfies and photos are encouraged. Experience lasts 1 hour.

All of our lessons and experiences conform to current PA Covid19 guidelines.  Please follow current guidelines.  See for details.  We ask that guests arrive no more than 15 minutes early and stay no longer than 15 minutes past the end of your activity and stay in the barnyard.
