Golden Acres is one of over 20 farms, ranch and agricultural producers who open their gates to the public during the Fall Farm Tour. We are a working ranch offering hayrides, petting areas, hands-on fiber and agricultural projects, local foods, arts & crafts, picnic in pastoral views of goats and sheep - and more!

Lots of people ask us questions about ranching, and folks often come for tours of the farm. They bring their children and friends to see what it is like and to experience the lifestyle. Some want to see if they can make the leap and others are just curious. Either way, we are always willing to share.

Many want to volunteer and so I’ve decided to organize something to fill that request. My ulterior motive? Could be to get additional help cleaning the barn or chicken coop. Actually, you can participate, or just watch and ask questions. My plan is to schedule a “chore” or program on the third Saturday of the month and some weekdays. The first few workshops are scheduled below.

Call if you know for sure you're coming, or just show up - in proper clothing for a working ranch, please! (850) 997-6599

Thursday, January 19 - 9:30 AM until finished
Identifying Goat Moms and Kids recording tag number, tagging the babies, taking photos, checking hooves and for parasites. It is too early to wean. That is a chore for next month.

Saturday, January 21 - 9:30 AM until noon
Making Mayhaw Jelly - I have some personal gifts I need to prepare and samples for the Mayhaw Festival. This inspires me to get the job done and the added fun of sharing how we do it.

Saturday, February 18 - 9:30 AM as long as you want
Picking, cleaning and carding sheared wool in preparation for roving, spinning or felting. We'll show you how to do needle felting, too.

Keep up with the schedule on our website: http://www.goldenacresranchflorida.com/
