Bullarto Primary School Goat Festival
Held each year on the weekend before Melbourne Cup weekend, the Bullarto Goat Festival is a celebration of all things 'goat'!
Students from the School are proud of their little goat herd and are willing to share their knowledge of the goats at the Festival. The members of the Central Highlands Goat Club will be on hand, assisting the students with husbandry information.
With farming lands, the Wombat Forest close by and only 10 mins from Daylesford, 30 mins from Kyneton or Woodend; the Bullarto Primary School is an ideal location and setting to hold this unique and special Goat Festival.
Goat products that are made from dairy goats are like a mini supermarket. From goat’s milk and cream to soap, body creams, plus many delicious goat products like cheese, sausages etc.
