As a high school English teaching veteran (26 years), Nigerian Dwarf Goat Farmer and Dairy Owner (8 years), contributing writer for Zest Magazine and yoga teacher, Hope Hall believes her passion for all these jobs is rooted in her desire to see connections instead of barriers. Hope completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training program last fall with Sacred Seeds and now leads yoga at the farm where sometimes up to 80 people gather in the field to downward dog with goats and try goat cheese and snuggle babies after practice. Her classroom, farm, and yoga classes have allowed Hall to create small spaces where people can come together to celebrate what makes us feels most human in this sometimes crazy world. As a new grandma, Hope is eager to show that we can be strong and bold at any age and is fueled by the belief that there are endless opportunities for reinvention and connection with others if we remain open to them.
The farm is always looking for new ways to build a community of people who want to slow down, respect animals as much as we do and love good food! Check back often for new offerings.
Sunflower Farm Offers Workshops Year Round! Our goal is to provide a break from the daily grind and a window into the most human parts of yourself. While our workshops offer diverse explorations, each experience is grounded in creativity, community and connections to nature. Of course, a visit with the goat herd is part of every gathering!
Perhaps you have been so busy keeping up with life that you have not had time to honor your amazing inner self. Life moves more slowly at the farm and there is all the space you need here to take an afternoon for yourself.

Come for a one hour goat yoga class in the field, followed by goat visiting and cheese tasting every Thursday during June, July & August.
Food & Local Culture
May through December we offer periodic cheese classes for beginner cheese makers exploring Farmer's Cheese, Chèvre, Feta and Cajeta. Every class is a mixture of tasting, creating and learning. Choose some fresh ingredients from the farm's herb garden and mix up your own goat cheese to take home to share. At the end of class try your hand at goat milking. Some wine and laughter always mixed in for good measure!

Always wanted to own your own herd, but nervous about learning the details of goat care? Or maybe you are interested in pretending you have a farm for a few hours without any of the responsibility? We have opportunities for everyone.
Or come to our spring Intro to Goats Class and learn to trim hooves, milk a goat and give shots. Bringing home kids this spring and feel a little nervous? Then this class is an excellent chance to ask lots of questions and to connect with others who are getting goats for the first time.
