Read more about Goat Conspiracy Farm

The Goat Conspiracy began as a small local sustainably-oriented farm and creamery. After almost a decade of working the farm, the owners began to understand gaps that could not be closed with respect to sustainability and animal welfare. In the winter of 2024, they began transfarmation into a goat and chicken sanctuary/retirement home for our goats and chickens.

The farm offers visits/tours, yoga classes, soap making workshops and as well as a variety of events such as WonderCamp! Read more about Goat Conspiracy Farm
