October & November Goat Hikes

September 18th, 2017
Comments Off on October & November Goat Hikes

Goat hikes are back! We took a little break in September while we adjusted to back to school schedules, but now it’s time to get back on the trail and the goats couldn’t be happier. We are all looking forward to beautiful Fall weather, clear skies, cooler temps, and changing colors. Fall is always a great time on the farm and a great time for a goat hike.

We have three scheduled hikes in October / November:

Saturday, Oct 21, 1 pm
Saturday, Oct 28, 1 pm
Saturday, Nov 11, 1 pm*

*Saturday, Nov 11 will be a special Veteran’s Day hike. All veterans hike for free!
Here’s how it works: You’ll hike through the Ten Apple Farm woods with our herd of Alpine dairy goats. The hike consists of an approximately 1 1/2 mile loop through the woods on fairly well maintained trails. There is some steep terrain. Children must be at least 5 years old and accompanied by an adult. (Children under 4 must be carried). 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 enjoy some fresh goat milk and cookies! $10 per adult, $5 for kids.

To sign up, send us an email to info[at]tenapplefarm.com with your name, # in your party, and a contact phone number (cell preferred).

See you at the farm!

To schedule a private hike or goat themed event for your group or party, email us: RSVP today!

Yes, that’s right! It’s kidding season at Ten Apple Farm, and our 3 pregnant does blessed us with 5 beautiful babies (4 doelings and one buckling). All the moms and babies are doing great! We’re a bit sleep deprived–Karl has spent the past week sleeping on the backhouse couch next to the baby monitor — but it’s a relief to have the season’s kidding safely behind us, with healthy babies chugging down their bottles of colostrum and milk. Now the baby goat fun begins!

We have a goat hike planned for this Sunday, May 29 — and there are still spots available — if you want to come out and hike with the big goats and snuggle and bottle feed one of the babies. Just send us a message or give the farm a call to let us know you’re coming.

And make sure to check out our Ten Apple Farm Instagram feed for lots of photos and updates about the new babies!
