(Attn ipad/iphone users: to view camera feed, please visit this link. You will be prompted to install the free Dropcam app and register for a free account. Bookmark the link for later viewings.)

Check in on what's happening with the goats at Beekman 1802 Farm! This goat cam is courtesy of Dropcam, which we think is the coolest, easiest, highest quality video monitoring cam in the world. And Dropcam was also cool enough to offer a second Dropcam for us to give away to one of you! How can you win? Just leave a comment in the comment section stating what you would use it for...property protection, wildlife spotting, dog-sitting, your small business, Big Foot catching...it's great for a million uses.

We'll announce the winner of the Dropcam at the end of our baby goat birthing season, May 15th. (You can leave as many comments as you wish until then, we'll create a list of all email addresses entered and choose one by random number generator. Check back here on May 16th for winner's announcement.)

You can also leave comments about anything fun you spotted while watching!

Audio Note: If the audio is silent, it is *not* a malfunction. Farmer John turns off the camera's microphone twice a day during milking...in the morning and in the evening. The milking pump is near the camera and the sound is overwhelming for your computer speakers. 

To make goat cam full-screen, click on the full-screen symbol on the bottom right of the camera window.

 

Below is a clip from a recent "live talk show" with Farmer John. It was a little...um...chaotic. All we have to add is: #nipplebucket!

I literally cannot even stand it when Polka Spot comes into the frame. The cuteness takes over and I start wanting to punch things. Who watches goats for like 8 hours straight?! Can’t……stop…….

I would cut off my left arm to come visit! Ahhhh!

Yay, my last kid was born yesterday! First time Mama “Plinko” held on for the longest time but she finally did it, she had a Teeny Tiny baby girl miniature! Looks like Farmer Johns girls aren’t quite done yet………

If you look closely at the white goat laying close on the right, you can see her babies moving around in her belly. Looks like it won’t be long now for her and I’m sure she will be happy about that too!

I love working in my kitchen while having GoatCam on my ‘puter screen. Added bonus!: from time to time I get to see Beekman Royalty (in the form of PolkaSpot her Very Self), or some of the “Lessers” (Brett, John, Josh) in the barn. It’s thoroughly enjoyable. Thanks so much for the opportunity to catch a glimpse of your barn.

My cousin works full time plus helps takes care of the family farm – if I won the camera, I would give it to her….that way I could see her baby animals from the comfort of my home. I could also show my very urban foods & nutrition class about farming as the majority would never get the chance.

I so enjoy watching the goats and their antics while having a tea break! Always puts a smile on my face. My dropcam would keep a watchful eye on my critters including “Stella” the pot belly pig who rules the farmyard roost! Cheers Beekman boys!

I would use it to create a kitten cam live feed… a stray mama cat had seven kittens the very morning I was to bring her to the vet for a checkup and evaluation for spay/neuter. She and her kittens will be fostered together until adoption age, mama cat will be spayed in July… a DropCam would be an ideal marketing tool used as a kittencam live video feed to find the kittens good homes!

I am in love with Beekman 1802! Farmer John is absolutely wonderful to his girls! All goats should be so blessed to have a farmer John as their caregiver. I would use the drop cam in my goat barn year round, it would be so very useful, especially on those -45C evenings when it’s not so enjoyable to trek out in the snow at 3AM to do a birthing check. With the camera I’d be able to check from the comfort of my home in my pajamas! Hope to one day visit Beekman Farm and Sharon Springs! Thank you for sharing your lives with us, it helps show the world how awesome farming and country life truly is!

Goats are such inquisitive animals! Growing up, I had a pair of pygmy goats (Jack & Jill) for a few years and they were fun to watch—-they loved to play with our tether balls on a pole, which kept them busy for hours!

If I had a drop-cam, I would watch our hilarious dog Moke, who likes to let us know he’s ticked off at us for leaving him. He’ll grab whatever is handy from tables or counters: packs of gum, pens, pencils, Snickers bars, rulers, cards, two sticks of butter (softening for a batch of cookies), and proceed to rip it to shreds or eat it (wrappers & all). We often find the aftermath all over the house. So, it would definitely be fun to catch “Moke-the-Monster” in the act!

I’d use it to bust my (rescue) chocolate lab jumping up on the counters in my kitchen… I have told him " NO NO" 1,000 times! SO RUDE! His name is T-bone and I hope to teach him some manners. Last week he ate a lacrosse ball, it was not on the counter- actually I don’t know where it was. The (ball removal) surgery has slowed him down but I am hoping to shut him down before he fully recovers. May would be an ideal time. Cheers boys… and Polka… and the rest of the crew :)

We have a cat who has begun to hang out at the bird feeder—in spite of the fact that he already weighs 17 pounds and doesn’t need extra to eat. I want to know when he is there so I can pop out and catch him in the act. A camera would be perfect.

We have a micro-farm in Vermont called Monte al Mare Farm. We produce organic meat rabbits, etc. It kills me when I have to leave work on a morning when a doe is getting ready to kindle. With the dropcam, I could at least keep an eye on her and send my husband from his law office if anything looks like it isn’t going well. He’d have to tell the judge if in court LOL
