Welcome to “The Smithshyre”
The Shyre is feeling the love and want’s to give back to the community. We all know someone who wouldn’t or couldn’t spend the money go come visit the baby goats, but totally deserve it! This is why we created the “Show Some Love” Program. You can write us a short (150 word or less) essay on someone you feel deserves a free hour of baby goat love. Email us your story to email@example.com with the subject line “SHOW SOME LOVE”. We’ll select 3 winners on Jan 31st and notify the authors via email that their essay has been selected.
SOLD OUT/NO WAIT LIST Baby Goat Play Sessions!!
I wish we could share them with all of you, but unfortunately, the visits have completely sold out. You can check the scheduler for cancelations if you like, but PLEASE do not email or FB message for a wait list, it is all done through the scheduling system.
The overwhelming response to the tic tok video was more than we could handle. We are very sorry for anyone who was in the middle of being scheduled when it happened, but if you were not confirmed, you do no have a visit. I wish things were different, but it is what it is. We do not have any more babies coming anytime soon. Thank you for your support, we are grateful for being embraced by our community.
Shake off your Covid blues and make some special new little friends. We’ve got 26 adorable baby goats ranging from 1 week to 1 month. Sessions are one hour and cost $50 for up to 5 folks from the same household. Reservations can be made via YouCanBook . We are only booking through February.
Sessions are all days of the week 10am, noon, 2pm and after 5pm (Limitations: no after 5pm visits on Wed). They are limited to an hour, as the babies are still frequently nursing.

Kitsap Goat Yoga 2020 **CURRENTLY SUSPENDED DUE TO COVID-19**
Here at The Smithshyre, we consider ourselves to be “An actually organic (non-certified) homestead”. We never use chemicals or altered seeds. Everything here is clean and pure, just the way nature intended.
Our mission started out simple – clean food. Disenfranchised by the current food system, we were basically vegans eating a small portion of chicken, turkey and eggs. Then the opportunity came along for us to learn about growing vegetables and we thought, why not proteins too? We started off with a few laying hens, then got brave with chickens and turkeys. Once we harvested them and realized we could actually make food that was healthy, humane and delicious, our path became clear – buy a farm and “be the change you seek”. “The Smithshyre” was born.
All of our livestock are rotated throughout the farms pastures and orchards. Pasturing our livestock makes them, our land and you more healthy.
In the past few years, we have branched out to include Nigerian Dwarf Goats for milk. We make cheese, yogurt and ice cream to share with our friends and family. Someday, we hope to have a dairy to share with our community. Kidds are available for sale, typically at 8 weeks, depending on their size and weaning status. In an effort to keep the kidds happy and help socialize them, we’ve started Kitsap Goat Yoga! Yes, it is as fun as it sounds. To keep us in milk, we breed for “freshening” every 6 months, which means BABIES twice a year! Kidds are ready to do yoga shortly after birth and retire from the class when they are no longer interested in playing. See our Goat Yoga page for more information and a link to tickets.
We also raise Finnish Landrace sheep or Finn sheep. Their fiber is very soft and likened to merino. We sheer 2x yearly and offer raw fleece for sale. Perfect for felting or spinning into yarn. Typically, we carry, white, dark and light rosegrey, brown and the every beloved, true black. See our “fiber for sale” page for more details or email Roni at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We keep 2 large gardens, over 1/4 acre of production and have 2 small orchards and a berry patch. We are in a continuous state of converting the property into a permaculture forest. These means there are rows of fruit trees being grown in various locations throughout the property.
The Smithshyre wants your family to enjoy local seasonal veggies, herbs, fruit and eggs. A source of food that you can feel good about. Where you know the animals live on pasture and forage naturally. Where you know the farm is actually organic and the animals all feed organically. Where you know the farm works in harmony with nature. The Smithshyre is your source for seasonal food. Products available at our farm stand, picked for order and Kitsap Fresh, your all local, online farmers market.
For your convenience we have a self serve farm-stand open daily during daylight hours. We have eggs and seasonal offerings all year.
