What to Expect


Tuesday and Thursday 11-3, Saturday 12-6pm. See Calendar for booking a time slot.

Arriving at Ripple Ranch

When you arrive, please take an immediate right, drive up a small hill, and find a spot near the tractor barn. Parking is available before and directly in front of the barn.

Begin Your Adventure

Enter the tractor barn—our welcome area and the primary area where our baby goats spend their time. A friendly smile and the playful bleats of our goats will greet you. Here, you’ll sign in on our tablet and watch a brief video that introduces our goats and outlines the rules to ensure a safe and enjoyable visit.

Interact and Learn

You’ll be guided to a pen with goats selected just for your visit. Remember, goats are curious and might nibble at clothes and toes, so close-toed shoes are recommended!

Capture the Moments

There are plenty of photo opportunities at the ranch. We will gladly capture your interactions with the goats and have photos available for purchase by digital download within 24 hours after your visit—perfect for those special family moments or unique Christmas cards.

Plan Your Visit

Expect to spend about 30-45 minutes for a complete experience, though you’re welcome to stay longer and enjoy our peaceful setting. Cost is $10 per person.
