THE HAUTE GOAT SHMURGLE
SHMURGLE: Def, snuggle, smooch, hug, cuddle ANY animal but particularly and with emphasis – a Nigerian Dwarf Goat.
The magic begins when you come down the driveway and catch your first glimpse of the breathtaking Northumberland Hills. Meet Haute Goat owners Shain and Debbie as they greet you with open arms and warm farm hospitality. You’ll discover their passion for their animals is infectious.
Gather just outside the 100 year old farm house to hear how Haute Goat came to be, some history of the farm and an introduction to Jack and Teja – the friendly Livestock dogs. We'll spend some time introducing the Nigerian Dwarf Goat breed, its unique traits and history and how they came to be in North America. Following the orientation, everyone heads down to the goat pen where we will "Release the Goats" on the count of 3...:) We then hike through the fields and trails for about 30 minutes before heading into the Goat Playground. and shmurgle with our 35 goats and babies...Now that you have great stories and pictures to exchange come in and enjoy some samples of the most interesting goat cheeses in Canada while learning about their different characteristics, all while having the most incredible view as your backdrop. Enjoy our fabulous new Cafe featuring local and seasonal delicacies....have lunch or a snack whatever suits..
