A farm in Oregon is inviting area stargazers to view the solar eclipse in the company of baby goats who call the place home.

Goat yoga is becoming a popular feature for many farms as of late, and now people can add stargazing to the list of activities to be enjoyed with these climbing creatures!

McPhillips Farm, of McMinnville, Oregon, is opening its doors to stargazers later this month with tickets to view the solar eclipse among the company of resident goats.

According to the Ticketbud event page, the $105 event begins on August 20, when attendees will set up camp along a riverbed, and enjoy swimming, berry picking, a barbecue, and a projected movie by bonfire later in the evening.

According to Oregon Live, the 155-year-old farm has been handed down through six generations and hopes to continue on to its seventh. Right now, the family is expecting around 100 guests, including kids, to get in on the fun.
