Come and de-stress by snuggling our goats. These bouncing bundles of joy are guaranteed to make you smile! We also have chickens, peacocks, honeybees, and even a pig.  Beautiful sunsets on the lake!

We are a located in a rural area of Tallahassee, along the Florida Big Bend Scenic Byway and surrounded by the beautiful Lake Talquin State Forest. Great fishing and hiking trails and beautiful sunsets. Two Trailwalkers and one Trailtrotter trails are just minutes away.  There is also a 10-mile Lines Bike Trail.  See trail maps in our photos!

We are about twenty five minutes from FSU stadium - straight shot! We love to host parents and students!  Great weekend getaway!

We provide water, wifi, and fresh fruit for the picking when in season.  No electric at campsites. We also have several extras from the farm you can request when you book such as our famous farm fresh biscuits with honey butter, milk bread, fudge, and goat milk soap. 

We have a small outdoor kitchen area with grill, stove, utensils, and picnic table. Basic cooking ingredients are provided (oil, salt, pepper, etc) and you are welcome to pick from the garden when in season. 

There is also a common room with sofas, fridge, microwave, tv, coffee, french presses, and tea kettle. 

We have a small rustic bath house with hot shower and a composting toilet. Soap, shampoo, conditioner, and fresh towels provided. 

There are also water spigots in the camping area. 

Common areas and bath house is about 250 feet from camping area, which is located adjacent to the pasture. 

Check-in/Check-out time may be flexible depending upon concurrent bookings! We ask that you clear your campsite by 11am, but you are welcome to spend the remainder of the day hanging out with the goats, kayaking, or just relaxing.  

Private and group goat yoga classes may be available during your stay.   You can also add milking lessons when we are in milk!

Unless you are a returning guest please arrive before 7pm. Remember, there is an hour time difference if coming from the west. Late arrivals interfere with our milking and chore routine and we cannot stop milking to show you around. Farm folks also hit the hay pretty early! Please do not book and then tell us you will be arriving late. Thank you.

Feel free to message if you have questions!  The herd looks forward to meeting you!!

Things you should bring: 

Your camping gear!

A Lantern

Refillable water bottles 

Sunscreen if you plan to be out on the lake

Bug Spray

We are located at the end of a bumpy 3/4 mile dirt road off Highway 20/Blountstown Hwy on the lake.  Part of the road is paved, but most is dirt and we are prone to flooding after more than a couple of days of hard rain.   We have several cars in the neighborhood that don't have a problem on the road, but - full disclosure!  If bumpy dirt roads bother you, our road in is not for you.  We - and most of our guests - think it is worth it. 

We offer a 10% discount for FFA, all goat and dairy association memberships, and 4H, just send your number when you book. 

Feel free to message if you have questions!  The herd looks forward to meeting you!!

Really nice owner and kid friendly goats. Really fun for the kids and a good experience for everyone. Surprisingly it wasn’t too loud at night or the morning.

Wonderful atmosphere, clean camping space and loads of goats to pet.

The trek to the bathhouse was less than ideal but not a deal breaker. Super cool common area, lots of cats, goats, chickens, a peacock and more.

Relax and unwind with loveable goats, wander among the chickens and wake to the roosters crowing. Private shower. Primitive camping, no hookups. Rough road coming in, just take it slow and you’ll be fine. Laundry available with eco friendly detergent provided. Very environmentally aware farm. Friendly and informative staff. Loved it!

One of many gorgeous roosters. Cuddling baby goats! The chicken yard. Composting toilet instructions. No smell!
