The Sunflower Farm in Cumberland, Maine, always welcomed farm friends worldwide. Hope and Chris ran the farm and hoped to be one of the best dairy farms. The farm had numerous goats and goat kids.
The farm owners, with their several Nigerian Dwarf goats and their kids, enjoyed every day. They were loved and cared for by the owners like their own children. Recently, several people had become a part of their Sunflower Farm community and participated in the “Goat Yoga” classes.
This was a very innovative way for the farm to have a humane yet beneficial approach. The owners helped the farm animals that were seniors, no longer fertile, or unable to produce the desired amount of milk, to have a happy life.
The barn goats also therapeutically benefited the farm community. The adorable goats looked forward to the yoga classes and loved human interaction. They would run to the yoga classes every Thursday evening & Saturday morning.
The Nigerian Dwarf goats and their babies ran to meet the numerous humans visiting the farm. The visitors enjoyed interacting with the farm goats and would smile and hug the innocent little creatures.
Afterward, all the goat kids and their moms returned to the barn for breakfast and roamed around the farm. One of the Nigerian Dwarf goats, Junie B, had a habit of waiting for her kids in the same place she had to feed them.
The mama goats fed their children and let them play on the farm in the evening. After all that running, the baby goats needed to recharge. So, all the little ones gathered together and went to sleep.
