Goats with Totes Experience
Goats with Totes Experience
February 13 and 14th, 10a-4p (FEBRUARY 14th SOLD OUT!)
Business and residential delivery available
Move over Candygram! The new “kids” on the block are here!
Nothing says “I love you”, “you are the greatest of all time”, or “be mine, valentine” quite like GOATS delivering a cake!
Springy and Sprout, the “KIDS” in Charge, will deliver a Chocolate or Vanilla Conversation Heart Cake directly to your special someone. They will get to snuggle, smooch, and take lots of selfies with our sweet pals as part of the experience, as well as receive a custom tote bag to commemorate the occasion. Goat-ally rad!
Spriggy and Sprout think our cake is fabulous, but also will be offering a number of other limited edition items to sweeten the surprise, like chocolate dipped strawberries and charcuterie boards straight from the Hester General Store kitchen, fresh flower bouquets from Laurel Creek Florals, and handwritten notes on Ink Meets Paper letterpressed cards.
The Fine Print.
Just like Flower Delivery: we can guarantee a day for delivery, but we cannot guarantee a time. If your special someone is not available when we deliver this experience, we will attempt to FaceTime them. If they do not answer, we will record a video of us singing with the goats.
We recommend giving a “heads up” to the experience receiver to try and avoid any disappointment when giving this gift.
We can deliver this gift to residences and places of work. We cannot guarantee that the goat will not ruffle other co-workers feathers if you choose a large office environment. We can guarantee that everyone who chooses to partake in having fun with our goats will indeed get a “kick” out of the experience!
All deliveries include a choice of a chocolate or vanilla conversation heart cake with the special message “I CHEWS YOU”.
We will deliver this experience within a 10 mile radius of downtown Greenville and Hester General Store. If your address lies outside of these two radiuses, we will write you and offer a refund on Sunday, February 12th.
Where do you source your ingredients from?
We primarily use locally sourced ingredients in all of our seasonal products, and rely on many value-added vendors to supplement our always-made-in-house products, including:
- Holmes Sweet Home
- TUFT Confectionary
- MacGregor Orchard
- Rambling Rosa Farm
- Bee Well Honey
- Bio-Way Farm
- Carolina Ground
We also responsibly source bulk items, like butters, flours, or sugars, from distribution partners in the Upstate of SC and Foothills of NC.
Are any of your items gluten free or vegan?
Yes! We feature a number of gluten free or vegan treats as part of our core offerings. We also have developed an incredible vegan and gluten free ice cream that will be available for purchase soon!
Do you use any dyes or synthetic food colorings?
Not really! We prioritize natural food coloring in our products. Sometimes, we will create our own sanding sugars using food colorings for specialty items, and we will always point this out in the product description.
Are you hiring?
We’d love to learn more about you and if you’d make a great fit for the Hester General Store team! You can find open jobs here.
