Our Story

Parkside Farm located in Byron Center, MI was founded by Nicole Zaagman in 2021. Parkside Farm was named for its peaceful, “park-like” setting filled with trees and natural beauty. In the spring, maple trees on the property are tapped to make maple syrup, available for purchase online. The farm features a small, registered pygmy goat herd which is utilized for farm education and the Jump for JOY Program

The Jump for JOY Program has visited senior centers and special events all over the state of Michigan including Byron Center, Lowell, Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Marshall, Muskegon, Wyoming and more. Focused on impacting the next generation through farm education and a line of adorable pygmy goat gifts, products and children’s storybooks, Nicole encourages families to engage with their local farms and farmers.


Parkside Farm is currently working on an expansion plan for 2024 and currently offers hands-on pygmy goat educational experiences and mobile pygmy goat visits for special events such as school visits, assisted living enrichment, festivals and birthday parties. Passionate about preserving agriculture and farming, the prayer is for the Lord to use Parkside Farm as a means to spread joy with others.
