GOAT CAMP


Every agricultural activity has its peak moments, and for us it is the harvesting of our cashmere crop in the spring, when the cashmere goat sheds her winter undercoat. If you like to roll up your sleeves and get dirty, you can come in the spring when we harvest the fiber from our 200+ goats, and you can get in some hands-on GOAT THERAPY!

Each goat is individually hand-combed to remove all of the precious undercoat of cashmere that has kept it warm over the winter, and that is shed as the weather becomes warmer. This is an all-day, every-day job from mid-february through the end of May, depending on the weather

For SPINNERS: this really is a unique experience, and you are welcome to take home the raw fiber that you manage to comb while you're here - we give you the goat and the comb and you provide the elbow grease!!!!

We suggest a camera to immortalize the fun - you will be the envy of all your friends back home! For our 2021 season we expecT to be able to video some of the process, so stay tuned

We start at 10 am, comb all morning and then have lunch together - over the years we have had people from all over the world come to join us, so put this one on your bucket list for sure!
