Goat Yoga for Walk To End Alzheimers
October 08, 2017
Into The Woods Farm goats attended a fundraiser to benefit the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, which is scheduled for Saturday at the Cool Insuring Arena.
“We heard about this and how well it worked in Clifton Park, we just had to bring it here,” said Lindsay Stanislowski, the memory-care director at Brookdale, who is also involved in the Alzheimer’s Walk and worked with Kym Hance from the Alzheimer’s Association on the event. “We just put out the announcement for a couple of weeks and we got more than $600 and over 25 people for a Gentle Flow Yoga Class with Goats.”
Baby Goat Meet & Greet Educational Event
This came about because we are planning a much larger event in the spring with the baby goats. We will be outside, with more activities and food at that time, DATE TBA.
RebelWood was blessed with many early births of goats this season, so we decided to host a mini-meet and greet here inside the store. We are a general store offering products from more than 80 local farmers, producers, artists, etc.
We are hosting this event our "know your roots" room, a space for educational events and classes.
We have limited parking, so carpooling would be a good idea.
At this point, we have 200 people that have RSVPed. We can handle that amount if they are spread out throughout the four-hour event. This event has gone viral, with more than 200,000 views. (Baby goats will do that!) So we really aren't sure if these are legitimate responses.
Join us Saturday, Feb. 10 from 11-3 for a day of fun with baby goats from RebelWood SoapWorks! We'll have some other special goat-related items to check out, and of course, many delightful goats milk products!hat's this item about? What makes it interesting?

The Daily Gazette~ Saratoga County farm offers woods, goats, goat yoga
July 10, 2018
Indiana Nash did an amazing article on our farm and mission.
MIDDLE GROVE -- There’s something to be said for the hard work of running a farm day in and day out, of living deep in the woods and of taking chances.
At least that’s what Phaedra Zoe Stasyshyn has found.
She runs Into the Woods Farm in Middle Grove with her two children, Drake, 15, and Rhedyn, 11. Together they host educational events, wilderness, nature and outdoor day programs, farm workshops, for families, 4-H groups, Girl and Boy Scouts and schools. They also hold goat yoga classes, both on the farm and all over the Capital Region.
“Hazel Fina is our PR goat,” Stasyshyn said.
Indeed, when The Gazette visited the farm, the young Nigerian dwarf goat seemed to be just as comfortable with people as she is with other goats, cuddling with Drake and following the whole family around. She’s one of several kids, or young goats, that call the farm home. The others -- Pan, Tank, Her, Indigo, Teg, Briar, Starr, Skye, Daisy, Rhea, Jitterbug and Saytr -- are just as friendly, though maybe not as cuddly. They leap, bound, snuggle and follow yogis, as they go into downward-facing dog or child’s pose.
Stasyshyn started the farm in 2016 when goat yoga wasn’t even on her mind.

The chef will be opening the kitchen at 11:00am if you want to plan for lunch after the event with family and friends. There will be goat snuggling, photos, questions and information, activities, drinks on the patio and interacting with the goats.
Into The Woods Farm herd has proven themselves as the perfect Goat Yoga ambassadors during their yoga debut sessions and various public events with children, adults and the elderly during 2016 and 2017. They show they enjoy all the attention they get from events with the wagging tails and spunky hops as they frolick in the yard.
