Groovy Goat Notes

This is why we do what we do!

March 1, 2017

At a young age we learn how to work: clean our room, do the dishes, take the garbage out and so on. For farm kids, it goes like: feed the animals, muck out the stalls, milk the cow, collect the eggs, etc! In any case, we lean how to work! From this point on our skill set changes as do our tasks and responsibilities. Eventually we end up in what is hopefully a wonderful, challenging, rewarding career.

At Groovy Goat, we love our job! Don’t get me wrong. Every job has that little thing that you dread doing but, 99%…

The Perils of Painting

June 30, 2016

Have you ever tried to paint a room before? How about an entire floor of your house? Well, this winter we started the hard task of deciding what colour scheme we should paint the outside of our store. We always liked the natural wood look but the issue came up that people were not noticing the store as they drove by. Customers pass by and notice the store too late. They have to drive down the road and turn around, but how many of them don’t turn around? We will never know! So now we have a decision to make…

The New Barn is finally (well almost) Complete!

January 17, 2016

Groovy Goat was a hobby farm before it was a business. We built our barn one section at a time with what we could afford and it was never built properly. As our farm grew, our needs outgrew our barn and in November 2014 we started work on our new two story 24′ by 40′ barn. It was a learning curve for me, knowing a lot about electrical and enough about carpentry to get the job done. The barn was completed one long year later, with a concrete floor complete with drains, electrical, a hay loft and an unfurnished milking…

So what better gift than to give someone than some all natural goats milk soap? Upcoming at Groovy Goat on November 21st we have our annual Christmas sale at our own store front 36028 Cabot Trail from 12…

It’s true…. Goats LOVE recycled Christmas trees!

January 2, 2015

Happy New Year to all of our family, friends and groovy customers!

There have been several media stories this holiday season about recycling your old Christmas trees to goats. It’s true! Goats LOVE Christmas trees. Every year we give our fir tree to our goats here at Groovy Goat. It’s a nice green treat for them in the winter time, when their diet usually consists of just hay.

We’ve had a few people ask if they can drop off their old trees to our goats. The answer is YES! Our goats would love you for it. Just throw it…
