Hilltop Views Farm is a beautiful, 5 acre, 100 year old farm that sits atop a hill overlooking hundreds of farm fields. The original farmer used the barns and grounds in the early 1900’s as a safe haven to rescue wild horses. My husband and I knew when we set foot on the property and looked out the barn window atop the hill, that there was a warm, inviting spirit in this space, that seemed to be asking us to bring it back to life. Within a few months we had purchased the farm and started our new life that soon turned in to adopting goats for no more than simple joy and companionship.
Our first two cuties, Petunia and Oakley were the sweetest little addition to our farm. We then quickly wanted more, and shortly after adopted our Valentine girl, Rosey Valentine. Most recently our Christmas baby came along, Frosty. Each of them having their own unique personality that makes us laugh and smile every day. This farm and these animals have brought us so much joy and we want to share it with everyone!

From a yoga teacher's perspective, this was by far the most entertaining thing I've done in the yoga scene. It makes me want to live on a farm with baby goats so I can hold my own practice alone outdoors and do it all the time. Goat Yoga is a must, if you live in the area! There were people of all shapes/sizes practicing. This was one of my close friends first yoga class ever!
This was the absolute best experience and just what I needed. I booked goat yoga for my daughter and I... After I booked this, my husband was diagnosed with lymphoma. So after spending a month as a caregiver, this was a perfect get away and was fun to be with my girl doing something fun! Thank you so much!!
Goat yoga was all I imagined it would be. The environment, goats, and people I was surrounded by was amazing. I would recommend goat yoga to everyone. And I will definitely be returning!
I grew up on a farm near Grand Rapids and continued on to get an Animal Science degree from Michigan State University. After that I stayed in the Lansing area for work and started taking yoga classes. In 2015, I began training to become a yoga instructor with Cherie Ferro. Since then I have taught beginner and continuing classes at Our Space Yoga in Williamston. I love working with students, making them feel comfortable, and seeing them accomplish poses that they never thought possible. I’m very excited to combine my love for animals and yoga to create an enjoyable Goat Yoga experience for you!
