You Can Play With Baby Goats & Explore This Hidden Florida Farm For Only $25
Animals are instant serotonin-boosters, especially baby ones. Big eyes, button noses, floppy ears, and cuddly fur are just downright irresistible. And, like most things, it’s even better when it’s cheap! So, if you’re looking to cuddle some cuties without breaking the bank, check out the Florida Airbnb experience where you can hand-feed goats for only $25.
You will find the goats at ECHO Global Farm, located in North Fort Myers.
With a focus on sustainable agriculture and community development, the farm works with developmental practitioners around the world to solve hunger problems and promote sustainability.
Their tour is considered a "social impact experience," so every dollar you spend on playing with goats goes towards their nonprofit organization.
The tour itself is about two hours long and consists of a walk around the property through the rainforest and urban gardens, tasting the tropical bounties along the way. You’ll take in the views, and then go greet the kids you’ll be feeding.
The Airbnb experience has nothing but five-star reviews, with customers super pleased with how interactive and educational the tour is.
