Blue Heron Farm is a small-scale 10-acre goat dairy in Field Store, Texas, owned and operated by Christian and Lisa Seger. They’re a must-follow if you love farm animals—in addition to their herd of Nubian goats, they also have dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, pigs, and a donkey.
"Eat like no one is watching." –Persimmon #omnomnom . . . We are the goats of Blue Heron Farm (@blueherontexas) and we have opinions. You're gonna hear them. We take our work seriously, but not ourselves. You should consider this path for your own life. All opinions marked with our names like this: –GoatName #bhfinstatakeover #spoiledgoatsfreshcheese
Started in 2010 by Louisa Conrad and Lucas Farrell, Big Picture Farm is a small hillside goat dairy and farmstead confectionery and creamery located in southern Vermont. Louisa and Lucas did an Instagram takeover for us last spring, and their photo of a goat being born (scroll down to see it) ended up one of our top nine posts of 2016! [Editor’s note: Read the story of Big Picture Farm in our summer 2017 issue and online here.]
Located just outside Nashville, TN, Little Seed Farm is a sustainable farm (they’re 100% solar powered) that makes natural and organic goat’s milk soaps and skincare.

Kirsten is a writer and farmer who grew up on a farm in Midcoast Maine. Her small hobby “homestead” includes geese, goats, chickens, bees, ducks, and extensive vegetable and herb gardens. We can’t get over how cute her baby goats are right now.
What better way to celebrate #fluffybuttfriday than to formally introduce you to these three wonderful bundles of joy? We went with a theme of our farm and its history for their names. The larger boy is Whitaker after the family which lived here for generations before us. The girl, a true mini-me of her mother, we've named Maude after a name found carved into one of the beams of the barn. And finally our black and white boy, the smallest kid, is Sambucus (Sammy) after the elderberry plant. The waiting game is over for Sweet Pea – but just beginning for our Tater! #hostilevalleyliving #babygoats #goatkidsarethebestkids
Goats of Anarchy is a special needs baby goat rescue in New Jersey. With a whopping 488k followers, it’s no surprise that they were voted the People’s Voice Winner of the Animal Social Media category in the 2016 and 2017 Webby Awards (an award for excellence on the Internet). Some of their photos might make your heart hurt, but overall, it’s inspiring to see people give so much love and care to injured and special needs goats.
Best friends. Lawson and Toby are inseparable. They cannot be out of each others sight. I have absolutely no idea how I am going to explain Lawson's surgery to Toby. Lawson has one more blood test and then we can get his surgery date! He has been pretty anemic, so we have been giving him iron supplements and that has been the hold up. Every blood test is better than the last so we are so close! His last blood test is tomorrow! I will be asking that everyone who purchased Lawson socks wear them on his surgery day!!!
This account has no bio, but according to a recent Buzzfeed piece, the farm is run by Jessi and Josh Pottebaum in western Kentucky. You can expect many photos and videos of extremely happy-looking baby goats.
There isn’t much info about this account either, but there are endless photos of cute goats (with the occasional farm dog appearance), so we don’t mind.
Rachel and Scott left the big city to start a farm, and we’re so glad they did, because their baby goat photos are some of the best we’ve had the privilege of laying our eyes on.
We have been in a crazy dash this past year to make enough money to move things on the farm (and with the house) forward this summer, so much so that it's been nothing but a blur. Not exactly the way we want to live our lives. And then suddenly #goatkids are born and everything else in our busy life comes to a halt , and in that moment we realize just how lucky we are. We see direction, progress and purpose; life on the farm goes on.
Another anonymous goat Instagram with a big following. We can see why.
And, of course, we had to include our friends at Goat Yoga. Obviously, you will get the most out of this account if you enjoy both yoga and goats.
