Saanen is Swiss breed, highly productive dairy goat. Male goats are bigger in size and are usually weighted at 100kg and above. Female goats are smaller and are usually... More

Again no entrance fee, my driver just take some vegetable for us to feed the goats. Maybe we come a wrong timing, all goats are sleeping. The little goats are not in cage, you can touch them easily. The visit is very short, only about 30 mins. There are also 2 ostriches, 2 lambs and some chicken and ducks in... More

The goats are friendly and touchable. Feeding grass is free as well as entrance. Goat milk pudding was nice. Quite clean and well maintained. Definitely a thumbs up.

It's not easy to get here but if you are interested .... sure it's good enough. You will see plenty of goats, and their is goat milk and yogurt sold.

You can feed & touch goats freely. You got to know many info about goats, milk, yogurts, etc ... Goat milk is the best, very fresh & taste great! My 2 girls enjoyed a lot feeding, touching goats, playing with the dogs & cats, etc ...
