Goat House Farm is a 501(c)(3) FarmHer owned micro-farm in a rural area of Tallahassee on the beautiful Lake Talquin. The farm has its humble beginnings in the summer of 2015 with four acres, four goats, and four chickens. Founded on the love of animals and a passion for sustainability, we remain committed to compassionate practices and the most natural care of our land and animals as possible.

As stewards of the land and herd, we believe we have a responsibility to share nature’s blessings. We offer several agritourism opportunities on the farm, from farmstays to day visits. It is our goal to create a space where our visitors can have fun and learn about the animals – farm and forest – who share that space. We also strive to serve as a valuable resource for first time goat owners.

Our primary goals are:

  • -To establish standards and communicative 

  • strategies for first time goat owners based on scientific best practices and holistic care.

  • -To develop and build community educational programs on goat husbandry and beekeeping centered around compassion, empathy, and environmental awareness.

  • -To improve community wellness through goat-assisted therapeutic services.

    -To partner with nonprofit organizations in order to align shared missions and services.

 

We are not a rescue.  We do believe by educating our communities to care for and care about the animals we live with, we can help reduce the burden on rescues. 

“We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. . . For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with the extension of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings: they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.”

Henry Beston

The farm is home to a happy herd of goats (the pygmies who were mostly here before we were, some extra sweet nubians, two shy oberhaslis, and three wacky mini nubians), a flock of boisterous chickens, including several rare and exotics; a spoiled hog named Houdini (it is indeed a fitting name!); some lazy barn cats; and a bunch of busy bees! Remi, our sharpei shepherd mix oversees care of all the farm babies!


To support our endeavors, we sell chicken eggs, specialty cottage goods, honey, and natural goat milk and honey products. We also sell raw goat milk (for pet consumption only, as per Florida law). We offer handcrafted goods made right on the farm!

(watch for our online store when we get around to it!)
