I attended the cuddle class, and it was SO much fun! The staff was very knowledgeable and shared information on the goats. We also got to pet the horses and the dogs. You sit on a blanket under the tent, and the goats will just come right up to you. Some will lick you, but most just wanted to come up and snuggle. Everyone in my group was an adult (I’m in my 30’s for reference), and we all loved it! I can see kids loving this as well. Definitely recommend!

Came with my friend for the cuddle class and had a great time! All the animals are very friendly and we had plenty of time with the goats and other animals.

We had such an amazing time at Avery Family Farms yesterday. We went for a Honeygirl mead tasting and goat snuggling session. It was so relaxing and enjoyable to drink delicious and locally produced mead, cuddle with the adorable goats, and learn more about the farm. Such a unique experience that I highly recommend!

I thought this would be fun. It was even better than I imagined. If I lived closer, I'd be there monthly. The goats are utterly charming and the owner tells you how they like to be pet and about their unique personalities. She was also really thoughtful about all the guests, offering to take pics, and see who wanted time with the horses. I went alone and the atmosphere is so happy that everyone was talking and laughing and, of course, cuddling the goats. Such a great way to treat yourself! HIGHLY recommended!

My girls have been going to Avery Family Farm summer and intersession camps for years. Even at age 12 and 14 they still say that this is their favorite camp of all time. Amanda is kind, nurturing, and inventive. My kids always come back happy and tired in a good way.

I went the other weekend for goat yoga and had the most amazing time! Everyone was super nice and the goats were adorable. Such a unique experience can’t wait to visit again!

I had such a great time doing goat yoga. I was scared at first, but warmed up to them because they are so sweet. The owner was sooo kind, patient, and knowledgeable on so many animals. There are goats, sheep, horses, ducks, geese, dogs and more on the farm. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED experience

What an enjoyable experience! We held a corporate retreat here and got a lot of joy, as well as insight into our team communication styles, out of it. The goats were so sweet and Amanda was great to work with. Would absolutely recommend for a fun friend, or corporate retreat, activity.
