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!

Summer is in full swing and so are our goat hikes! We’ve had wonderful groups of gung-ho goat hikers in June, and can’t wait for our July and August hikes to begin. With long summer days, we’ll have at least one evening hike in August, and we may add one or two more. And if you have a group of 10-20 people and would be interested in a weeknight evening goat hike (starting at 6pm with goat milking), let us know. Here are the upcoming scheduled hikes:

Sunday, July 16, 1 pm
Saturday, July 22, 1 pm
Sunday, July 30, 1 pm
Sunday, August 6, 5pm
Saturday, August 12, 4pm
Sunday, August 20, 1 pm
