PLAY WITH THE GOATS
AND VIEW DAILY MILKING
At Yarragon we offer customers the opportunity to visit our goat farm.
We farm over 5000 dairy goats using the feed we grow on our farm. We farm half the total milking goats in Australia and are growing at a rapid pace to continue to be Australia’s leading goat milk supplier. We milk a variety of breeds but mostly you will see Saanens (white) Toggenbergs (brown) and British Alpines (black). Our goats are kept on sawdust in large open air barns with plenty of room to move around. Our healthy goats are kept dry and clean in a well ventilated environment.
Be sure to visit our petting area and experience feeding our friendly goats.
A key highlight to your visit is seeing how we milk our goats, this is done at 2.30pm daily.

OUR GOAT HEALTH & WELLBEING
Our goats are kept on sawdust in large open air barns with lots of room to move around. Our goats are kept dry, clean and well fed and in a well ventilated environment. By keeping the goats in this way we keep the goats free of internal parasites (which means we don’t have to drench them with anthelmintics), they stay warm and dry which keeps them healthy, and they stay free from the foxes which can be a problem with new born kids. Goats are a social and friendly animal that like living in a familiar environment. We farm like this to ensure a well-balanced diet, freedom from disease and for good quality milk. As part of our farming and business policy we offer customers the opportunity to visit the farm, simply contact us.
