ZGR MISSION STATEMENT
Zehr Goat Ranch’s mission is to provide a loving and supportive home for retired farm animals, provide healing experiences for veterans, and outdoor experiences for the public with a focus on best sustainability practices for the community of Eagle County, Colorado.

VISION STATEMENT
We envision a world where animals are free from abuse and neglect and always have enough food to eat. A world where we wouldn’t need troops to fight wars and wouldn’t need therapy for invisible wounds. A world where all humans have enough food and clean water and energy free of a carbon footprint.

We are a family sheparding goats, some rabbits and a few loyal dogs. We also offer a mobile petting zoo which the kids LOVE! We would like to develop the ranch to offer more adventures for our guests and the ability to teach the public about growing food and sustainability during their stays/visits in tandem with offering more and more experiential programs for veterans in need. 

ONGOING NEEDS AT THE RANCH
- Covered trailer
- Safe secure fencing 
- Electric in the barn 
- Veterinarian fees
- Feed and hay 
- Operating costs
- Yurts for group stays 

FUTURE GOALS
Develop programs for the 3,500 local veterans
Further our ability to take in more animals in need
Develop infrastructure for educational sustainability programs






Guest access | Zehr Goat Ranch on Airbnb 
Upon request, we can accommodate most outdoor adventures (horse boarding available).


Other things to note
Out here in the Mountains (pronounced: Maht-Nz), there is no internet service and spotty cell reception at the cabin. We use walkies (provided) to communicate with each other at those altitudes*. In town there's internet access/WiFi via cafes and cellular service returns to normal.


*Altitude: Please be prepared for the change at these heights. It's good to take things slow, besides, that's why we're here, right?
