Nice to see the cute goats and learn a bit about goat farming off the grid. There were lots of baby goats and we got to feed one. We tasted goats milk yogurt and some lemon balm tea made from herbs grown on the farm. We were disappointed though that Aletta is no longer making goat cheese. I was looking... More

We spent a fun 3 hours with Aletta and her herd of goats last week and got to learn more that we thought we wanted to know about running a farm. She has a simple operation here run by herself and a couple of volunteers. While we were sad to learn that she is no longer making her famous goat... More

We loved this very simple goat farm. Aletta was full of information about her goats. We could not believe that she was running this farm on her own with sporadic help from volunteers. Her property has no running water (water must be purchased and delivered at quite a cost) and only generator for electricity. Both utilities are essential in making... More

Wonderful informative tour given by Aletta. Learned quite a bit about goats. Its amazing what she has accomplished without electricity. The yogurt was tasty was the cheese wasn't really to our liking. She really has a bond with the goats.

Take a break form all the diving and go see the goats. They are fun to play with and actually the story behind the farm is very interesting.

A very nice and relaxed tour by Aletta despite the problems caused by no electricity. She shows her love for goats. Very tasty milk and cheese.

I just finished reading comments of the other visitors and fully agree with every single one of them. When visiting Bonaire, Aletta's Goat Farm is a must-see in order to observe/experience what a dream, sheer determination, lots of hard work and camaraderie can accomplish. Aletta is a very charming young lady who has taken a giant leap and has made... More

We found out about Aletta's farm at the tourist office. We called and made a "reservation" for our visit as Aletta only does the tours three days a week at a certain time of day. We arrived and were met by Aletta's gregarious father. We were shown to the barn where Aletta was busy milking the goats. She started the... More
