O que você fará

Join us at our ranch in the Angeles National Forest to practice the ancient art of shepherding goats. Even though our private location is less than 90 minutes from downtown LA, you'll feel like you've been transported to a far away magical wilderness. Our herd of about 100 goats, aged from 1 month to 12+ years, forages all day in the chaparral and the pinyon pine forest, covering over 70 acres. We'll meet at the barn to talk quickly about safety around the herd and give you some shepherding tips, and then head out to join the goats. While we are shepherding, we will sometimes walk through brush or scramble up a hillside, but mostly it's a gentle walk with lots of breaks to let the goats eat. During these breaks we'll describe how the goats positively impact the landscape to increase forage production, plant biodiversity, water retention and ultimately carbon sequestration. When it's time to bring the goats back to the barn for water and rest, you'll have an opportunity to interact with them more including petting, which they love. Selfies with goats are encouraged!
Other things to note
At our elevation, especially sensitive people sometimes develop mild altitude symptoms like headaches. Drink lots of water the day before your visit.
We recommend wearing close-toed shoes, pants instead of shorts, and a wide brimmed hat.

My partner Christian and I are the founders of the only regenerative goat ranch in Los Angeles County, where we have been shepherding goats and educating the public about sustainable agriculture for over 10 years. We have hosted thousands of people on our ranch to learn about low-impact food production, enjoy the company of goats, and experience the magical wilderness of the Angeles National Forest. We are thrilled to be able to provide unique and educational agriculture-related experiences for visitors to Los Angeles.

Onde você estará

We will shepherd the goat herd on our 80 acre ranch in the Angeles National Forest. The property is one of a limited number of privately held parcels within the Forest boundary. It is located at 5200 ft elevation, where the desert chaparral turns to pinyon-juniper woodland. The location is at the maximum elevation for Joshua Trees and is considered a "climate refugee" zone for the species due to cooler temperatures.

The experience was nothing short of magical: the beautiful ranch, the 4 gorgeous and friendly Great Pyrenees that greeted us and escorted us everywhere, the 100+ adorable and fascinating goats, the pigs, the horse. Gloria's passion and knowledge of what she does and how she cares for these beautiful creatures was so inspiring. And it was a great escape from the stress and claustrophobia one can feel in Los Angeles. 3 days later, and my husband and I are still buzzing from the experience. We definitely plan on going back and renting the airstreams she has on the ranch. Counting the days until we can return!

We had a great time with all the animals and Gloria is a great host. The dogs greeted us when we arrived and the goats were very friendly and surprisingly affectionate. The area is so pretty, and it was a very fun way to spend an afternoon! Would recommend to anyone looking for an interesting animal experience.

Truly amazing experience. It was a breathtaking setting with kind animals and extraordinary people. Took my dad for a Christmas present and he loved it. Got to see baby goats and it started snowing! Magical day we won’t forget.

This experience exceeded our expectations! We visited at the end of December, with snow still on the ground and a few flurries in the air. Gloria met us just as we walked down to the barn, where we met the goats and took them out to forage, with the help of the dogs (four shaggy white Pyrenees). All the animals were very friendly and appreciated pets and attention. They didn't want to stay out long in the cold, so we ended up back at the barn, where we met the horse and pigs, sampled goat milk caramel and apples, and got a first-hand demonstration of goat live birth, with an assist from Gloria to reposition the kid so it could be delivered. We also scoped out the air stream trailer and small cabin that they have available in preparation for a stay in the future. If you love animals, or are curious about the lifestyle, visit and see for yourself.

This was truly a magical experience. Not only is it incredible to walk among dozens of goats in their natural habitat, but the joy and cuteness of the Great Pyrenees that greet and join you is an extra special touch. We were also lucky enough to witness the birth of a baby goat. When the mother was having trouble with labor, Gloria assisted with the labor and saved the kid’s life in front of our very eyes. It was miraculous! And all this surrounded by the natural beauty of the land, which happened to be covered by a couple feet of snow, another added bonus! And don’t leave without a jar of their homemade goat caramel!

I absolutely loved this experience. When else would you be able to hike with 100 goats in a beautiful private forest? The goats were so sweet and loved to cuddle, and Gloria gave each of us a jar of fresh caramel when we left. Would love to go back.
