Name that goat

Entries can now be submitted for the Name the Baby Goat contest.

Andy's Animal Acres is giving people the chance to name a male and female Nigerian Pygmy goats, born on Aug. 18 to their momma, “Nana.”

Those wishing to participate must submit their suggestion by Sept. 1, at which time all names will be considered and the winning names will be chosen.

Entries must be submitted when visiting the farm and the cost  is $1 per entry (for two names, one for each baby).

All of the proceeds from the contest will be given to Critter Aid Okanagan.

The two winning entries will receive a 2015 family pass to the farm.

The farm is situated a short drive from Penticton on the way to Naramata on Three Mile Road.

Admission is $7 per person or $25 for a family of four. Children under one year of age are admitted free.

The farm is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (weather permitting) Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday and closed Saturdays and Mondays.

Private bookings can be made by calling 250-809-5122 or by email to
