May - August
Tours are offered Saturdays at 10am (or by appointment-please call) and last approximately one hour.
Length of tours can vary depending on the emotions of the animals or unexpected events that may crop up on the farm. When dealing with live animals anything can and usually does occur, so please be understanding should something interrupt your visit.
While on the tour you will have the opportunity to see how a small Alaska homestead farm operates. Though primarily a dairy goat farm, we also raise chickens, pigs, turkeys and rabbits. We grow, cut and bale all of our own hay to feed our livestock.
We will walk through the greenhouse and stroll among the organic vegetable boxes.
Most every building on site was built by Randel and his son Kevin. We will share a little Homer history with you as well as have on display antique farm equipment, implements, Terry's family dog sled and even a bear gun that we actually have to use once in a while!
Of course, the main attraction for most everyone are the goats. We currently have 18 goats: 16 nans, a billy and one whether named Charlie Brown. Currently there are quite a few kids and we should have baby goats to play with all the way through the summer.
We milk twice a day and collect over 8 gallons of milk! You will even have an opportunity to milk
a goat yourself after the milking demonstration. Learning to milk is fun and like riding a bike...
Once you learn, you'll never forget how!
We recommend that you wear old clothes and rubber boots
if you have them. The tour is a whole lot more fun if you're not worried about getting dirty!
Tours must be scheduled in advance and a fee of $10 per person or $25 per family will be collected by your tour guide. Cash or personal check please.
Tours are conducted by Terry Jones (farm owner)
or one of our visiting/working Woofers.
