Bradley Mountain Goat Nannies

What are the Goat Nannies?

Bradley Mountain Goat Nannies are the volunteer team that helps us to manage, train, and socialize the herd. Goat Nanny sessions are broken into two components - one part focused on herd management, and one part focused on training and socialization.  Attendance at sessions are by email invitation only, and you need to sign up in advance. 

Is There A Minimum Age To Be A Goat Nanny?

  •  Goat Nannies must be 16 years or older to register.
  • Children who are 10 or older may come as a guest of a registered goat nanny.  All should come dressed and ready to work and participate.  Please judge the maturity level and the interest level before bringing a child to goat nannies.  Goats are strong animals, and some children are afraid of them. 

How Should I Prepare Before I Come?

  • Come prepared to work, to learn, and to get dirty!   
  • Wear common sense clothing is comfortable.  Wear sturdy shoes and prepare for mud.  
  • Goats may unintentionally step on your shoes or your toes, so wear toe protection.
  • Be prepared to be outdoors for the entire session.  
  • Wear warm gear in the winter.
