The next time you're in Oregon, why not stop by the tiny but unique Goat Museum at Fairview Farm Goat Dairy in Dallas. Located just 15 miles west of Salem, it's the ONLY goat museum in the nation. And there's only one other goat museum in the world -- located in the Australian outback.
So, while the Goat Museum is only 200 square feet in size, it's packed with interesting information about "that fabulous animal, the glorious goat!"
Visit the Dairy Store while you’re at the Fairview Farm Goat Dairy, where you'll be able to sample their award-winning products including goat milk, yogurt, cheeses and ice cream; pick out frozen cuts of meat; wave to the cheese maker at work; and watch the goats doing whatever the goats want to do.
To get to the Goat Museum, take OR-22 W out of Salem, then eventually bear left onto OR-223. In Dallas, continue south on Hwy. 223 heading to Falls City. They're the second place on the left after you pass the cemetery.
The Goat Museum is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fairview Farm Goat Museum website.
Also located in Dallas, Ore., is a Forest River RV manufacturing plant.
