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!
Announcements, cute kids, Goats
We had two wonderful goat hikes this past weekend for private groups: a goat hike birthday party and a family owned business company retreat. One group was intergenerational, and other mostly teens, but both groups had a great time, interacting with the goats and each other, and spending some quality time in the outdoors with good people and beautiful and entertaining animals.
Spring and Summer are fantastic times to come out to the farm. We have 4 scheduled public hikes coming up in May and June, and we are always happy to schedule private hikes and parties for groups of 8 or more people.
Children should be at least 6 years old, or able to be carried, for the hikes.
Sunday May 1, 10am
Sunday May 29, 3pm
Monday May 30, 10am
Sunday June 12, 3pm
Contact us at info[at]tenapplefarm.com to reserve a spot in any of these hikes, or to schedule a private hike for your group.
We’ll announce July and August hike dates later in May or early June.
