What you'll do

Must love goats is our motto here at Hidden Brook Acres! Come explore the daily happenings on a goat dairy farm. Immerse yourself in the presence of our nigerian dwarf goats, the miniature breed of dairy goat.

Goat snuggling is always a big hit with adults and children alike! Come spend some time sitting in the pasture with our herd. Depending on the season we could be on dry lot (dirt paddock) or green grass. Kidding season begins in the spring, book for April/May sessions to snuggle newborn (goat) kids!

This experience guarantees time relaxing in a field of goats, observing herd dynamics, an educational Q&A with a knowledgeable goat farmer.

Relax with the herd under the “goat”zebo or bring a blanket along and sit with goats in the pasture. Our goats really enjoy the company and might even rest on the ground with you.

This is an outdoor experience and weather might impact your visit. We love pets but for everyone’s safety we cannot allow visiting pets to the farm. Please feel free to b.y.o.b. just note our herd is underage.

I have been raising and showing dairy goats for nearly ten years. Currently managing a moderate dairy goat herd with my family, I am very involved in performance programs through the American Dairy Goat Association. With a background in pet assisted therapies, I enjoy facilitating a therapeutic experience between human and animal. Our goats have traveled all over Rhode Island bringing personal and educational experiences to individuals in our mission to promote the dairy goat!

Where you'll be

Our small acreage homestead is located in the historic mill village of Arcadia. The barn and goat pastures abut Arcadia Management Area which boasts some of the best hiking trails in the state. We will spend most of our time in the barn and in the goat pastures with nature all around us. Roaring brook runs through the property and can be heard through the trees during most of the season.

Loved this experience so much! My friend and I really enjoyed talking with James and Willow. It was very cool to hear about James' and Shannon's experience with their farm and the way they treat their animals (we also walked away convince we need at least 2 goats in our future...). The goats were so cute and we really enjoyed getting to meet Willow as well! We also LOVE the soap that we purchased. Highly recommend this experience to anyone who enjoys spending time with animals and animal lovers.

My partner and I loved meeting the *entire* family and learning about the farm. Shannon, JJ and Willow were warm, welcoming and loved talking with us about the different goats — so knowledgeable! If you get to meet Willow, Young Jedi Goat Master in training, you’re in for an extra treat. Thanks to Jamie, for the extra special experience of getting to milk one of the goats by hand, so cool! Be sure to visit, you won’t be sorry!

What could be better than snuggling sweet goats on a sunny afternoon? 🐐 Every goat has a name, and a personality to match. Shannon, Jamie, and Willow warmly welcome you to their farm and provide an easy 2-minute lay of the land.. We learned a lot, but the best part was simply hanging out in this happy, laid-back place where kindness and curiosity serve as magnets for the friendly goats. Chickens and ducks intermingle alongside the goats. A beautiful horse strides by with majestic grace. It’s hard to describe the restorative and relaxing feeling, and the photos don’t do it justice. I can’t believe how little they charge for this magical experience. Book a snuggle session and you will revisit a part of yourself not often accessible in the hustle and bustle of life. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Shanon and Jamie were very accommodating and welcoming. We came during a storm but they still created an amazing experience for us. The goats are very used to people and they come right up to you when you show up. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone in the area.

We had a wonderful time learning about and hanging with the goats! We want to go back in the spring when they have their babies!
