Fairview is known for three things – wine, cheese and goats. That’s right, goats. For 35 years, the Goat Tower at Fairview Farm has been a landmark where people can go and interact with the mascots. And now Fairview have added a playpark and skywalk for the goats to enjoy.
These additions give the beloved goats a bigger, more exciting area to explore, frolic and play. The new paddock and skywalk is the brainchild of Charles Back, owner of Fairview. He says:
‘During kidding season this year, we decided to bring the goat kids up next to the Tasting Room to give our visitors a chance to interact with our beloved farm mascots. We received such an overwhelmingly positive response, and so we created a large paddock for the kids to take up permanent residence right next to our Goat Tower. Here, under the shade of the oak trees, all are welcome to say hello to our goats and build lasting friendships with them.’
Not only do you get to watch the goats have fun, you can purchase a bag of feed for R10 to feed the kiddie goats, and R2 of every bag sold will be donated to the Animal Welfare Society. While you’re at Fairview having fun with the goats, you can also indulge in some treats and snacks at the new outdoor food stall.
