Gotta Goat farm returns to business after wildfire threat evacuated their animals out

Goat farm reopens

GottaGoat Farm, west of Penticton along Green Mountain Road, has its farm and Goat Yoga back in business after being displaced by the Keremeos Creek Wildfire.

Over 50 goats were transferred along with their other animals out on Aug. 4 to Riding 4 Life Equine and settled into a temporary pen until evacuations were lifted.

The animals were bought back on Aug. 19. The farm shared that although the fire is still on the mountain just behind them, the information they received told them they should be safe.

On Thursday, the farm shared that they were officially allowed to welcome people back.

"Even though there will still be road closed signs on Green Mountain Road at the Apex turn-off, there will no longer be security there after today. That means that Goat Yoga is a go for this Sunday as well as farm visits again" they said on Facebook.

Visits during the week are by appointment, with Saturdays open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. no appointments are required.

"The only thing we ask is that all visitors go no further down Green Mountain Road than our farm."

Gotta Goat still has some spots open for our Goat Yoga this Sunday.

Tickets and more information can be found here.
