Snuggle Sessions at Caromont Farm


These events have passed, but check out our calendar for fun today, this week, this month!


If you missed out on Caromont Farm’s last goat snuggle, here’s another chance to get in on the action!

Although this farm is 2.5 hours south of our area (about 23 miles south of Charlottesville, VA), many NOVA families took the day trip. In fact, all previous sessions sold out almost immediately! This special event originated when the farm had about a hundred goats that were born there in less than two weeks, and the goats needed some outside help to get cuddled and loved. (Learn more about the original event here.)

2019 snuggle sessions include:

This casual day, which allows you to visit anytime between 11:30 am 4:30 pm, give you the opportunity to enjoy farm tours, visit with local businesses, and get up close and personal with all the farm’s baby goats!

Caromont Farm, in the heart of Virginia’s Piedmont region, produces both fresh and aged cheeses using milk from herds of Alpines, Saanens, and La Mancha goats. Caromont’s cow’s milk cheeses are produced from milk sourced from grass-fed Jerseys at Silky Cow Farm in nearby North Garden. All cheeses are made on the farm, are hand-ladled, tended daily, and follow a seasonal path.

Tickets for this one-of-a-kind event are limited and advanced ticket purchase required.

Caromont Farm is located at 9261 Old Green Mountain Rd., Esmont, VA 22937.
