We have everything set up for you to make magical holiday photos. Rent private studio time in our heated Stuga (cabin) complete with studio lighting and a wide variety of props, including our Amish-made velvet seated sleigh. Book for an hour and bring your camera to capture the giggles that come from this enchanting space. Sip hot cocoa in the lounging area to bring on the holiday spirit. We recommend this option for kids under eight, and pets, as the sleigh is quite small and the ceilings low in places!
After your studio time, book a farm tour where we'll look for the Yule Goat!
The space is disinfected and cleaned between guests, and there is a time gap between sessions.
Deep in the woods Tomten is getting ready for Christmas. But he has lost his special Julbocken, the goat who pulls his sleigh and presents, according to Swedish tradition. Can you help him find the Yule Goat in the herd of two hundred goats? Give peppermint treats to the goats and they may lead you to the Yule Goat. Watch with delight and pick out which mischievous goats may be on the naughty list. Hop on a kicksled and warm yourself by the brasa (outdoor fire). Oh the grins you will have!
A private one hour tour is provided to each family.
The Yule Studio can be reserved as a place to gather for an activity or meal before or after Spot the Yule Goat.
What is more festive and unique than your photo with the actual Julbock who pulls the sleigh and presents? Kids or pets can hold the reigns of the sleigh while parents attempt to keep the Julbock from nibbling their jacket. Smile for our camera and we’ll send you five charming photos with no watermarks or restrictions.
We recommend this activity after our Spot the Yule Goat farm tour.

Google Maps and Apple Map directions will correctly navigate to us! We will provide directions to our farm in our confirmation email.
We recommend Photos with the Yule Goat for family photos. The Yule Studio is designed for young kids or pets as the sleigh is small and the ceilings low in places. There is no live goat in the Yule Studio.
The goats live outdoors and so the tour is outdoors. Bundle up! We recommend winter boots or rain boots for this activity. The tour will last an hour. Pricing is per booking. We request a maximum of 10 people per booking.
Each booking is private experience for your group. Goat handlers will maintain social distancing on tours. Masks are required in the cabin except for those having their photo taken. Surfaces will be disinfected and there is a time spacing between bookings. There is a sink in the cabin for hand washing.
Yes, our Yule goat will travel. Please contact us for pricing and availability.
