Mary has had it with the Mum life and has taken the approach of letting her teenage kid, the Sassy Simone, do whatever she wants. Kids today have no respect.
What to expect from Mary:
- limited attention span
- Totally fine peeing in front of you
This is the goat that was banned from participating in goat yoga due to head butting other goats away from the humans so she could have all the attention. She loves people but maybe too much. Daisy is Mum to Lulu, loves reading (and eating) business management books and HATES anyone who disturbs her from the important business of eating.
What to expect from Daisy:
- Rage and affection in equal measures
- Head butting her pen mates if they dare approach her hay supply.
- Complicit in the petty theft of snacks via pick pocketing
You may have seen Jackie before in her role as a TV stunt goat during a courageous battle scene where she was thrown out of an English castle by a very naughty Frenchman. It turned out they thought she did not have the authority to be there.
What to expect from Jackie:
Humming Britney Spears songs subconsciously
Apt at casting reprobates into the Zoom waiting room
May fart in your general direction
Elizabeth, always keeping it classy. Elizabeth is glowing with good health. To her displeasure, Elizabeth has an evil twin, who will not be named as said evil twin jumped the farm boundary fence into the neighboring kitchen gardens and devoured all the cauliflowers. Elizabeth is the good twin, who will curiously look on while listening intently to you.
What to expect from Elizabeth:
- Impeccable video call etiquette
- On point glossy coat
- A sense of moral duty
Her name is Lola, she is a show goat, yellow Iodine on her hair from butting heads without a care.
While many of the Goats on the farm have been available to book for video calls since last March, Lola has had to wait until now to gain a spot in the limelight.
What to expect from Lola:
Tap dancing hooves
RAGE if any other goat tries to steal her moment of fame
Since former boyfriend Timone got the boot Lisa finally has the peace and tranquility she has craved. She’s moved back to the main barn with her Goat gal pals where she spends her time watching Thelma and Louise on repeat, eating snacks and napping whenever the heck she fancies.
What to expect from Lisa:
- Passive aggressive bleating
- Ferocious hunger
- Lack of any form of patience or tolerance of anything
Elizabeth's evil twin
Evil mastermind or misunderstood maverick? You decide. No one truly knows what this mysterious Caprine enigma is thinking
What to expect from Elizabeth's evil twin:
Impressively bendy neck
soul penetrating stare
More unknowable than the location of Boris Johnson's hair brush
Margaret is the highest ranking nanny who has ever lived in the barn. Feared by some, respected by all, you don't want to get on the wrong side of Marge.
What to expect from Margaret:
.... and the occasional head butting of miscreants.

* No really, alllll the money is going on hoarding loo roll.
Ok ok you got us - We're not actually funding a loo roll hoarding exercise! All profits from the Goat zoom call madness will be going towards paying for the purchase and installation of renewable technologies at the farm. It is our hope that one day we will produce enough renewable energy here at the farm to sell the excess back to the grid. The more people with the ability to do this who install clean tech, the more financially viable it becomes for everyone. We hope you like our slightly off the wall Goat zoom idea and that it brings you a laugh during these strange times. Sending bear hugs, the Cronkshaw team x
P.S - We've now been asked by several folks if we are accepting donations towards our cause of installing renewable technologies here. We were asked this loads of times back in Autumn 2019 after our BBC documentary aired - but it just felt so cheeky getting money for free without doing the work for it we didn't do it. We like to earn our own way.
Since then we've had numerous emails pointing out that lots of people REALLY want to do something about climate change and unlike us they don't have the space to install loads of solar panels or a wind turbine. By accepting donations we are allowing such folks to help us do something big to help tackle climate change when their circumstances won't allow for it. We had not seen it from this point of view before so (after much mental anguish!) we have put a donate button below, hidden at the bottom of this page out of the way hehe
All of the donations will go towards buying and installing renewable tech. We will be saving all your names and graffiti-ing them onto the panel edges and wind turbine once we have them.
OK - if you've read this far we feel you must really really want to donate so here is the button:
only if you're sure though......
We still find this emotionally challenging ok
well this is it now.....
