Satisfied Customers
"It is so hard to find good information, let alone get hands on experience, and your course provided both."

Satisfied Customers
Thank you very much for a Fantastic day at your farm. You and your husband are very knowledgeable about goats and your expertise comes through very effectively. We very much enjoyed the practical sessions because we could actually get hands on experience which is what we need.

Covid - 19, following lockdown we are planning to reopen for our course from early May 2021.
We will have reduced numbers on site - Maximum 1 household or group.
All aspects of the course will now take place outdoors on the yard or in airy buildings. No parts will take place indoors.
Lunch and breaks will be outdoors rather than inside. You should bring your own food and drinks.
Hands on aspects may be slightly reduced where absolutely necessary but as this is a hands on course we will do our best to cover all our usual topics just as thoroughly as usual.
At all times we expect you to attend in clean, not farm dirty clothing for the health of our goats, this is now even more important.
We advise the wearing of gloves during the course as some equipment will be shared.These can be supplied if you do not have access to any.
Face Coverings are advised when distancing is not as easy and required during hands on sessions where there is no choice but to be in close proximity.

Available dates include
Basic courses
As these courses are now 1 family or group only, we are able to find a suitable date for you.

Please contact us to organise a suitable date.

Kidding days cover the full breeding cycle from pre tupping through to the first few days of the kids life. Although we don`t guarantee you will see a birth we plan these days round our busiest time to give the best chance.

2 day courses in kidding season cover all the aspects from both courses.

All courses are very hands on and are designed round those present to ensure each individual gets as much from the day as possible. Courses can be tailored to your needs and are for individuals or small groups only meaning you receive our full attention.
