Enhance your day out at Folly Farm with our goat feeding experience – a one-off experience that includes a cuddly toy and a personalised certificate! If you purchase day entry with your goat feeding experience you can save £s on our standard admission prices with our special £15 discounted experience day ticket.

What happens on this experience?

It’s an exclusive opportunity to get up close to our goat kids, make up their bottles of milk and bottle feed them.  You’ll be accompanied by a Jolly Farmer, and you’ll be standing inside our central farm animal pen in our Jolly Barn.

You’ll be welcomed by one of our Jolly Farmers and after a short briefing you’ll enter the pen. Our Jolly Farmers will provide you with bottles of pre-prepared milk and you’ll then give our goats their feed! Get ready to welcome some bouncy, hungry kids and prepare yourselves for what may be a messy feed – spilt milk and, because these babies aren’t potty trained, maybe even a bit of wee and goat poo!

This is also your chance to ask our expert animal care staff all about our goat herd. What milk do we feed them? How long is a goat kid a kid?

Your experience will last at least 20 minutes. It includes a souvenir cuddly toy goat and a certificate signed by your Jolly Farmer to take home so you can remember your special day.

Important: Pregnant women, or anyone who thinks they could be pregnant, should not take part in the experience or be the supervising adult.

Goat feeding reviews...

"Thoroughly enjoyable experience. Great value. Grandaughter enjoyed tremendously. Highly recommended. Brilliant."

Rebecca Sands, Bancyfelin , 31 August 2023

"Great overall experience and good value, not rushed at all. My daughter loved it and the Jolly Farmer was knowledgeable, friendly and informative."

Shaun Davis, Ceredigion , 29 August 2023

"My daughter had the best time doing this experience! It’s so hands on from preparing the goats' milk to then getting to feed not one but six of the baby goats! Would highly recommend doing this if your child, like mine, is goat obsessed, she hasn’t stopped talking about it, telling everyone she can. A special thank you to Kim for being the best keeper to show Pipes the goats."

Beth Marsh, Kilgetty , 27 August 2023

"Kim was a fab handler. She explained all about what we were going to do and why. She was fab with my six year old who was a little nervous of the bouncy goats. It was wonderful being able to hold the goats, make the bottles and share the experience with my family. No question was too much for her, and we even managed a chat about folly farm holiday park, which we are staying at."

Sam Bennett, Staffordshire , 20 August 2023

"My children and I recently came and thought we’d try the goat feeding experience, and my oh my we were in for a treat! The Jolly Farmer was absolutely brilliant , she was just fab with my kids who ranged from age nine up to 16 and she was just fantastic with each one. From start to finish we didn’t stop laughing!"

Jordan Jones, Swansea , 17 August 2023

"Sarah was absolutely fantastic, very professional. She also had a good knowledge about the goats, she surprised me on how she could remember all of their names too. Really, really good, my daughter really enjoyed herself, highly recommend."

Beverley Turner, Carmarthen , 12 August 2023

"Perfect day for all. I was a bit apprehensive hadn’t been to Folly Farm since I was a child thought a few hours and we’d be home needing to try and fill a day. And my goodness how wrong was I, we spent all day there! Absolutely loads to do! Reasonably priced to get in and also activities when there weren’t expensive. Really enjoyed perfect for my 8 year old and 9 month old! Memories made."

Jess Hedges, Cardiff , 11 August 2023

"Had an amazing time on the goat feeding experience and had the best first year anniversary for my partner, she loves goats. Staff were amazing and helpful. Can't fault it."

Ashley Broadhurst, Staffordshire , 07 August 2023

"We really enjoyed our experience, our Jolly farmer was really friendly and answered all of our questions! The experience lasted for around 30 minutes and we couldn't have asked for a better experience, the baby goats were super cheeky too!"

Carley Kime, Mountain Ash , 25 July 2023

"Our grandaughter loved the goat feeding experience. The staff member who did it was kind and helpful."

Mike Paddick, Rhondda Cynon Taf , 23 July 2023

"We booked the goat feeding experience for our seven year old and I have to say it was brilliant. She got chance to make up a bottle of milk to experience how it is made and then feed the group of baby goats one by one and got to fuss them all. The Jolly Farmer had no end of time for our daughter's questions and was an inspiration. She really made the experience special and educational. Thank you!"

Rosey Capewell, West Midlands , 23 July 2023

"The experience was well worth paying for. The Jolly Farmer was wonderful and patient. She was engaging and went above and beyond to ensure our experience was enjoyable. We go to Folly Farm every year; this was the first having an experience. We will certainly try to have more given the quality of the day that we had. Great job guys."

Matthew Morton-Banner, Shrewsbury , 20 July 2023

"Excellent experience thanks to the keeper who is very friendly patient and knowledgeable. Good value for a lovely memory."

Dorothy Weir, Swansea , 15 July 2023

"Sarah looked after both me and my husband, she was incredible! She made the experience so enjoyable and she was just amazing! The whole experience was incredible and we both loved every second of it. I don't think I've ever laughed so much! Honestly I cannot thank Sarah enough for making the experience just that bit better! Will definitely book again!"

Shaye Dart, Swansea , 13 July 2023

"What a fab experience! Kim did so well interacting with my little girl who wasn’t too sure on the experience as she got a bit shy. Didn’t expect to make bottles too which was a lovely little surprise. Hygiene is clearly taken seriously too, which is always reassuring."

Sarah Klopp, Merthyr , 05 July 2023

"I absolutely adore goats so this experience was perfect for me! Every single goat had a unique personality and were hilarious jumping around and doing zoomies. I'd recommend this to anyone and only advice would be to wear clothes you don't mind getting a bit dirty because they have no idea of personal space and loved chewing on my jacket. Olive was our favourite goat!"

Jessica Lewis, Wales , 30 June 2023

"My grandaughter really enjoyed feeding all the goats. Sarah was very friendly and informative and had a lovely manner. She made the whole thing very enjoyable for us. The price was about right and I am happy to recommend it."

Susan Davies, Swansea , 28 June 2023

"Lovely staff member doing the experience. My daughter Sienna took part and she really enjoyed it. This was the first time the goats were being fed by the public, and it was amazing. The goats were gentle, and so funny, one even jumped on my partner's shoulders when he leant down by the hay bale! Would highly recommend the experience to anyone, great value for money and a fantastic addition!"
