Outdoor Wednesday...or...Let's Go to Goats on the Roof!

It's time for Outdoor Wednesday with our wonderful hostess, Susan at A Southern Daydreamer! Be sure to stop by her beautiful blog to see what everyone has been doing in this pretty weather! I've been making a few day trips. On my weekend jaunt to North Georgia, we passed by one of my favorite places, so I had to stop in for another visit! Yes, I am taking you back to Goats on the Roof in Tiger, Georgia...



...where there are goats...



...on the roof! lol If you have known me very long, you know I LOVE goats! I want one of my own, but my HOA doesn't allow them. :-( Soooo...I'll just visit these!



The best part is that you get to feed them! Just buy a handful of goat food for 25 cents from this dispenser...



...put it in this little cup...



...and pedal this little bicycle contraption to send it up to the roof. Thanks to my friend Nan for providing the pedal power!



Oh, look! The sweet little goats can hardly wait to get their food! Aren't they cute!



There's even a ramp that lets them come down to be fed. Look at this little sweetie pie!



Isn't this adorable? The little cutie is eating right out of my hand!



Awwww! There's my favorite goat...the little black and white one! I look for that one each time I come here! If only I could take the little critter home with me! Is that not the cutest thing you have ever seen? Sigh!


Look! There's even a rooster! What's he doing here?



Of course, this is a country store, so you have to buy some homemade fudge. Mmmm...peanut butter...my favorite kind!



And you have to have a souvenir tee shirt!



And I guess if I can't have the real thing, I'll take these! Aren't they cute?



Well, let's load up our souvenirs and head out! Sigh! I love this place! Thanks for coming with me! I hope you enjoyed our little visit to Goats on the Roof!



Please be sure to stop by Susan's to see what everyone else is up to! I'll see you next time! A la prochaine!

  1. Oh Debbie, I love this place. I think the black and white one is my favorite too. I don't know though, the little one eating out of your hand was pretty precious. Maybe we just need a big farm and then take them all. I'm so glad you had fun. Hugs, Marty

  2. Oh I am just laughing at this. I love, love, love that anxious and impatient look on their faces waiting for the feed to arrive. Too, too funny!!
    What a cute and quirky store. My kind of place! I think me and Kathysue need to plan a trip to your part of the South next time. :-D

  4. Debbie, I just love this! I was so excited to see these little guys featured on your blog again. I think we might need to ship the B & W one to Kathysue, what do you think? Hugs, Kat

  5. Oh my! I know goats like to climb but I've never seen anything like that before. Goats on the store, peanut butter fudge(nobody has ever made it as good as my Great Grandma!) and a rooster to boot. What a great time.

  9. Hi Debbie,
    What a wonderful post! I grew up on a farm surrounded by pigs, chickens, sheep and even the occasional goat. There is a place in Door County that has a similar set-up. It is a Swedish Restaurant and they only serve Swedish food, but mostly customers come for the goats! Hugs, Cindy

  13. Oh My! I've never seen Goats on a roof (at least not on top of a building) - I guess I have seen some on some sheds. My granddaughter would love to see that! How cute they are!

  29. Very clever and I'm sure lots of traffic because of the goats! They are so cute and you took great pictures.

  30. What a cool place!! I knew a couple that owned a grass farm...and they had several goats that always stayed on top of their barn...it was hilarious!!
    I had two goats once. They were very cute and gave the cabin even more of that "cabin feel" when you would drive up to it. But alas, they used the porch of their personal restroom and took over our lab, Elmo's doghouse. I miss them but we had to find them a very nice home with a farmer on many acres of land. LOL :-)
    Love ya! L~

  31. Hey Debbie..... I'm alive! YEP! hahaha! The past three weeks have been a full house...or an empty brain on my part...tired of traveling and tired of full house some days! ;) But, thankful I have family to have a full house! Blessings come in varied ways, right? I LOVE THE GOAT pics...how adorable! I miss you friend~ I could use a cup of iced mocha with you and an Antiquing Blitz someday. Did you know The Flea Antique place moved to a new location and they have expanded? Yep...and it's right across from the Braselton Library. Their grandopening probably won't be till July or August...but they have all their cubes rented I think. I think they'll be four times larger than before. I've dropped by a few times, even though everyone isn't set up yet. I love Aunt Bea and Louise! Aunt Bea is the shop owner and Louise is her friend/helper with the management of the place. They may even be partners, not sure. Anyhoo...we'll have to run by that way someday together so I can introduce you. I want to make scones for their grandopening. Well, gotta run! Happy Wed! ~CC Catherine

  34. What a wonderful virtual visit I just had. Thank you so much! There is a "Goats on the Roof" type place on Vancouver Island in BC, Canada that I have visited many times. I never tire seeing these dear sites. Thanks again, ~cindy s~

  35. Oh goody! You had fun and you get to share it with us :-) The goat on a roof thing is very new to me and I think it's really interesting :-) Whoever thought of it is a genius LoL And you get to feed it too by using that cycle. A little workout is really good :-)And knowing that those goats are waiting for those foods makes it even worthwhile :-)

    Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

  38. Two things. My mom had a family goat when she was a girl. The goat hated her and she hated the goat. It was not a pretty picture. Also, in Door County, Wis. there is a goat on the roof eatery. I always loved going there when I was a girl. Not my mom though. Happy Outdoor Wednesday.

  40. I'm new to the blogger world and just discovered your blog last night. I've spent hours since reading through your past posts. What fun! Do you know about the Quimper Club International? If not, check out the site and the blog: www.quimperclub.org. This year's annual meeting will be held in Dallas, TX, October 21-25. Interesting speakers, tours of private collections, antique shopping, museum visits, and a member faience sale. QCI is celebrating its 10th year this year. You should join the club and try to make the meeting. The yearly meetings are awesome events! Hope you will join us!

  41. Thanks for taking us to visit Goats on The Roof. I loved it. I too want a goat, but no time to care for them.

  42. Gotta love the South! Where else would you find a place with goats on the roof, lol ;o) I just loved your post!

  43. I have wanted pygmy goats for a long time...but alas...I have to visit them too. Cuteness!!!

    This looks like a fun place.

    A very fun post.

    Have a great day!

  44. Oh how cute is this!?!?! I love goats too. Isn't it funny that they love being up so high? I had them growing up - they were never in their "house", always on top of it - even in the rain. LOL! Thanks for sharing - I bet this was one fun day!

  45. What a fun post! I would totally love to go there. Aren't HOA's a pain? I'm so glad we don't live in one (even though our neighbors act like we do). My hubby once had a piggie (before me) & his HOA made him get rid of her. He still talks about his little piggie & it's been 20 some years. I see goats each morning on the way to work. There is always a herd of goats or sheep eating the grass along the freeway. Better than a lawn mower.

  47. OMGosh! I've never seen anything like this before! And there are actually goats on the roof! I think my favorite picture is of the two waiting for that feed cup to get to them. What hilarious expressions on their little faces! If I ever get to your part of the country this place will definitely be on my list of things to see!
