Volunteer on the farm and for $5 per night (the least Hipcamp will let us charge!). Farm fresh breakfast on Saturdays!

It is kidding season!!  We have sixteen baby goats with more on the way!! Expect bouncing bundles of joy!  We could use some help cleaning the nursery and socializing baby goats. :) 

Requirements: Work four hours on any day (for every two day stay) doing chores around the farm: cleaning the barn and pasture, clearing trails, weeding and harvesting, fence repairs, etc. No experience needed! One day stays are also acceptable. 

The remainder of the time is yours to just hang out, paddle the lake, fish, or do some hiking on the nearby trails!

Melissa is a wonderful, generous host. She’s kind enough to offer homemade jams, biscuits and fresh eggs as Saturday breakfast for campers and cabin renters alike. This is a great place to recharge in the delight of goats and humans. Goat House Farm is warm, inviting, and relaxed!

Melissa was a very attentive and helpful host. She knows her animals personally and individually and is wonderful at helping others to enjoy them too. A special place for love of all things feathered and furry.
