Goat House Farm is a 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.
In the spring and summer of 2019, we will be transitioning from vegetable crops to culinary and medicinal herbs. Check back for our herbal products.
The farm is home to a happy herd of Pygmy and Nigerian Dwarf goats; our rescue Boer cross, Hannah, and her kids; our sweet dairy Lamancha Nigerian cross Aspen; a flock of happy chickens, including our lovely Faverolles; a spoiled hog named Houdini (it is indeed a fitting name!), and a bunch of busy bees!
We also offer fresh eggs, dairy, produce, and handcrafted goods made right on the farm!
(watch for our online store when we get around to it!)
We get a lot of calls and messages for folks who just want to come visit the farm and spend some time with the goats. They always ask if there is a charge. No. We never charge for visits. While we are happy to take donations toward feed, we feel that, other than straight sales, profiting off animals is exploitative. We welcome the opportunity to help people learn about goats and life here on the farm. Indeed, as stewards of the land and the herd, we believe we have a responsibility to share what we’ve built here and the herd loves visitors – so, if they are happy we are happy! We just ask that you contact us ahead to make an appointment, so we can meet you out front and that if you have visited other farms, you bring along a fresh pair of shoes before you come into the pasture.
