Briar Gate Farm is a five acre family farm run by Kate and Brian Johnson. We're located on a quiet, country street overlooking the Rocky Mountain foothills just north of Boulder, Colorado. We offer a range ofcreative and empowering learning opportunities including:
cheese and soap making,
horsemanship and dairy clinics,
and much more.

Whether working with the animals, learning a new skill or exploring your own personal development, we believe that an authentic, respectful and positive approach works best. With the horses, our techniques center around Natural Horsemanship practices with a focus on safety, fun and mutual respect. Our dairy goats are treated with love and affection and we appreciate the high quality milk they provide for us. Our chickens enjoy the great outdoors and a safe environment and in return give us delicious and nutritious eggs.
We believe that children and adults gain confidence, self-esteem, responsibility and a sense of well-being when learning to ride, care for the animals, or develop a new skill. The animals also benefit from the interaction and enjoy the physical attention, exercise and social interaction. Further, we believe unstructured time in the outdoors enhances creativity and is empowering for all.
