Old Goat Farm is a small nursery located in the foothills below Mt. Rainier. The property includes a very small farm with a 100-year-old farmhouse and a large garden featuring both sun and shade beds. A substantial part of the garden is used for growing vegetables. The nursery specializes in unusual plants, many of which also flourish in the garden. Another highlight of the farm are the animals: two old goats, nine peacocks, ten ducks, and about 60 chickens. www.oldgoatfarm.com
