Welcome to Black Goat Farm and Sanctuary.
We are located in Ontario, Canada on a 10 acre farm between Hamilton, Smithville, and Grimsby.
We currently run a small scale farm animal sanctuary helping injured, orphaned and abused farm animals. We currently house goats, turkeys, chickens, ducks, guinea hens, pigs, sheep and cattle. Each and every one has a name and a story.
We plan on running a fully sustainable vegetable and fruit farm with a portion of proceeds going directly to the sanctuary . All crops will be farmed without the use of chemicals and pesticides. In the future we will offer vegetable boxes weekly with season long and weekly memberships. We make all natural jams and preserves out of the fruits grown here on the farm and are planning to add some homemade breads to the “Menu”. This is just in the works – the animals take priority so it may be a bit before we have the produce up and running.
Visits are on hold for the winter season as animal care and chores take much longer and are more intensive .
Come spring – we will have set visitor days that we will be open to the public. People can come have a tour of the farm and meet the animals. All tours will be on an appointment basis only as we both work in addition to running the sanctuary. We cap our visits at 20 people to ensure everyone gets quality time with the residents and to ensure the animals aren’t overwhelmed. There is no set admission fee but we do ask for a donation to the sanctuary of whatever you feel appropriate. All available visit dates and times will be shared on our Facebook page.
