Winter Goat Hikes!

Comments Off on Winter Goat Hikes!

What were your New Year’s Resolutions? Exercise? Spend more time outside? Spend more time with family? Spend more time with goats? Well, we’ve got a way for you to do all 4 resolutions in one fun filled afternoon. Come spend a fun Winter afternoon in the Ten Apple Farm woods with fresh air, good folks, and of course, goats.

Sunday, January 15, 1pm
Sunday, January 29, 10am
Sunday, February 19, 1pm

You’ll hike (or snowshoe) through the Ten Apple Farm woods with our herd of Alpine dairy goats. The hike consists of an approximately 2 mile loop through the woods on fairly well maintained trails. There is some steep terrain. Along the way we’ll talk about goats as pack animals and you’ll learn a thing or two about raising and caring for goats. After the hike, try your hand at goat milking, and sample some of our Ten Apple Farm goat cheese.

Hikes are $10 for adults, $5 for kids 5-12. Children under 5 should be carried or held on the hikes.

There will also be 1-2 hikes in March, but we haven’t set those dates yet. And as always, please contact us for private goat hikes or events for 6 people or more!

This past Sunday we were featured in the Bangor Daily News Homestead section:

The story does a great job capturing much of what our family is trying to accomplish on the farm, both in terms of our own lives and sharing what we do with others.
