Business Spotlight: Goats on the Roof

Apr 22, 2016 02:15PM ● By Melanie Heisinger
Goats On The Roof is a fun family stop in Tiger, Georgia, that has much more than just a unique name. There are plenty of activities to choose from so it could be difficult to choose which to do first! 

Things to Do 

Big Billy's Cafe & Sweet Treats is a popular stop at Goats on the Roof. Big Billy's has a full menu for lunch and dinner, as well as a long list of delicious snacks, including their famous nitro-made ice cream. Also on the farm, there's a Kidz Korner, where kids can play games, earn tickets, and can even opt to adopt a goat, certificate included. 

Aside from delicious treats and activities, Goats on a Roof carries Amish foods, Amish Furniture, unique gifts, T-Shirts, gem mining and rock crushers. There is a place to feed the goats, as well as become an official Goat Ranger. 

The venue is large and is ideal for hosting events. They offer facility rentals for all events and special occasions, including weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, and more. For more information about rentals, visit their website 

Why are the Goats on the Roof?

As stated by the owners: "To learn the truth about climbing our goats, we sought the expertise of Uncle Buck, Rabun County’s resident goat whisperer. He spent many hours with our goats, first in group session, and then one-on-one goat therapy to understand why our goats are on the roof."

They insisted that the goats were aliens, though humor aside, we all know that goats love to graze on mountainsides -- but we will keep the humorous tone!

Their tongue-in-cheek approach to everything is evident in all aspects of the venue, which makes the experience that much more unique and enjoyable. And the goats really do enjoy their time on the roof! 

Do you think you will visit Goats On The Roof, or do you know someone who already has?
