Co będziecie robić

Walk, feed and groom the goats on our smallholding in south Hampshire.

We will start by meeting the herd and giving them a brush down - this will also double as a chance to learn goat manners! For those interested in learning more about goats in general there'll be plenty of chances to ask questions. We keep two different breeds of goats: floppy-eared, friendly Nubians and tough and scrappy English.

Then we'll take the goats for a walk out in the pasture - this may involve trudging through nettles and brambles so come prepared with trousers and long sleeves (wellies or waterproof boots are also recommended if weather has been wet). Here we'll have a chance to watch the goats in their element and help them find the best forage to eat. You won't find any tidy, overgrazed fields here - we'll be exploring woods, meadows and brambly thickets.

After a while we'll herd them back home and give them a final goodbye after answering any final questions. For those wanting refreshments before you leave, a complimentary tea or coffee will be available in our renovated barn cafe where we also have cakes and homegrown produce for sale, along with a variety of local arts and crafts.

Please bare in mind that goats dislike wet weather (often refusing to go out in the rain) so in the event of a bad forecast some bookings may need to be rescheduled.

I have run Friends Farm with my family for the past 6 years. During that time I have grown my own vegetables, raised goats and chickens, made my own cheese and soap and built myself a shepherds hut!

I feel really privileged being able to live and work outdoors with my animals, growing my own food and making things by hand - getting to share these things with other people is one of my great joys.

Alex and his goats are amazing! We had the best afternoon hanging out with the goats feeding them and learning about them. They're super well cared for and chilled. Coffee at the end was a lovely touch and the cake was scrummy too. We also enjoyed buying a few home made bits from the cafe. Overall worth every penny.

Booked this experience with a few friends and we had so much fun! I have already recommended to my local friends and family. The goats were just lovely - they are free to do their own thing (mostly eating of course!) but they are still super friendly, enjoying being brushed and stroked. Alex was a really welcoming and easy-going guide, giving us interesting info about the goats and expertly fielding any question we could think up! If you have any hesitation about the time I would say that 1.5hrs didn't feel short at all, you have the perfect amount of time to interact with the goats and won't feel rushed in the slightest. The field is wild, just as the goats enjoy, so definitely follow the dress code suggestion so you can properly get stuck in without worrying about brambles etc! The farm itself is also a really well-presented location. We enjoyed having a look at the chickens and guineafowl, and there is a cute cafe so would recommend relaxing there after the experience - the complimentary hot drink was a nice touch and we also treated ourselves to some cake.

Obvious from the start the goats are very well cared for. Alex is a great host very knowledgeable, the goats are freindly. Overall a great 1.5 hours thats a good way to clear the mind and relax

We had a great time. Alex was an excellent host, there was no sense of rush and he had the welfare of the goats as the priority all the way through the experience.

A fantastic experience. The goats were so friendly and we all have a lovely time walking, feeding and grooming. The characters of each goat were fascinating to watch. It was a great experience and Alex was friendly, accommodating and extremely knowledgable about the goats. Thank you for a lovely experience.

Fun and entertaining, we really enjoyed ourselves and Alex was very informative. We got very involved with the goats, they are friendly and well behaved. It's clear these animals are loved and cared for so it was great to see them responding to Alex. They are surprisingly resourceful and a little strange but wholly lovely. Highly recommended.
