Folks can now get a farm experience in the Canyon, with the new “Goats of Glacier” facility in Coram.

Carter Harris, 19-year-old son of the owner Dustin Harris, manages the two-acre farm of over 30 goats varying in sizes, two mini highland cows, seven chickens and three alpacas to educate families about the intricacies of farm animals. 

“Goats of Glacier is an educational farm that families and whoever can come to have a farm experience and learn about where their foods come from,” Carter Harris said. 

Learning how to feed animals, how to take care of animals and how to react to animals is part of the experience at Goats of Glacier. 

Developing positive relationships with animals is at the heart of Goats of Glacier’s mission, Harris noted.

“We usually take a tour around the farm. I’ll explain what each animal does and their purpose on the farm. We also answer any questions people have, and after that people can freely walk around and learn a little more,” Harris said of tours.

On the animals’ pens, various signs show people the names and common myths about the different animals. A bouncy house offers children a different way for them to have fun at the farm. 

The farm also offers goat yoga, where folks can practice yoga, with the goats.

General admission for an adult is $9, and there are discounts for children, seniors, local and military. A family of four can get access to the general admission for $25.

The VIP option provides people with a cup of feed, guided pen entry and fun farm work. An adult can experience the VIP option for $15. Children, seniors, local and military have a discount of $12, and a family of four costs $40. Anyone under the age of two attends for free. 

Goats of Glacier’s summer hours of operation are daily from 10-6 p.m. Learn more at: goatsofglacier.com
