Not sure how to inform TripAdvisor but the Happy Acres sells products online but are no longer open t the public. They have moved & there is no "working farm" any longer. I actually talked to the owner when I called to see about tours.

Our spring break visit was enjoyed by both my kids who are 9 and 17. The farm babies were adorable. We laughed feeding and milking the goats. The goat cheese was wonderful. Thanks for a fun morning and get photo opps. My daughter still talks about holding the tea cup piglet.

I really hate to give this place a mediocre review, but despite the pleasant morning we spent here, I can't get past the price for the tour which was pretty much a glorified petting zoo. My daughter in law and I took her 3 children and it cost us $86! They even charged for my 2 year old granddaughter. It... More

Great place for families. Loved all the animals. Reserved the tour for $25 each. For that price they should have a bathroom and a place to wash your hands with soap. Also some water even if I had to pay for it. Wonderful alternative to wine tasting. Still had an awesome time. Hard to find though. Not sure what happened... More

We made an appointment to do a tour and it was a lot of fun! They have more than just happy goats at this farm too! Our favorite part was the "kindergarden" where baby animals of different species hang out to learn to get along with each other. We were able to enter and pet these cute little guys (mini-pigs,...

I have to stop here every time I'm in town to see the goats, llamas, horses, and the farm's dogs, and to stock up on their lovely goat-milk lotions. A sweet stop in a fabulous wine tasting and olive tasting region.

We took three generations to Happy Acres and everybody loved it. This is a working goat farm that has many other animals as well and an owner who is very sweet and patient, particularly with the kids. When you arrive, you're greeted by goats who rush to the fence in hopes of a hand-out. Close behind is a miniature donkey,... More

This place is adorable and the animals were very friendly -- we got to say hello to a bunch of goats, miniature horses and a big horse with only one eye...so sad to see, but he seemed so happy! We didn't get to sample any of the products, but the cheeses, spreads and bath products looked great! Fun stop!

Our family went there after an "adult" morning outing and everyone became a child again, so enthused about the goats, feeding them, sampling goat-made products, fun!

We got a special opportunity with Mike and Lori, as there were no other participants. So we didn't get to do the Milking Contest - But we had everything else, partic. them making my birthday super-special!! A rooster strutting, a cat pouncing (on a lizard), and goats and mini-horsies crowding the fence to eat the peanuts they provide. We tasted... More
