COVID-19 Update:

Farm Store Sanitation Regimen.

We will have a capacity restriction of 5 people at one time in our farm store. We will be sanitizing our store’s surfaces and point of sales system multiple times a day and our staff will be required to wear protective gloves when dealing with the public. Due to already in-place food safety regulations, our staff already follows strict guidelines when handling our products.

Lively Run Porch Pickup is available starting immediately.

Want some delicious cheese, but don’t want to risk human interaction? Order at com and choose porch pick up, call us at 607-532-4647, or email orders@livelyrun.com to place an order of cheese. Let us know when you will be arriving, and we will prepare your order in a safe environment for you to pick up on our porch.

Goat visitation is not available until further notice.

We wish that we could offer you joy, comfort, and some great laughs during these scary times, but public goat petting is too risky for you and our staff. Goats can have the virus ON THEM if they are in an environment with a large quantity of the virus and could serve to be a source of the virus for other people. Therefore, to protect you and our staff, the CDC recommends that we restrict contact with our goats to the public, just as you would restrict your contact with other people.
