Sarah and Emma Rose lead the way on a Sunday goat hike

There’s nothing quite like a hike in the Maine woods: the sweet smell of pine trees, the crunch of leaves underfoot, the sound of birdsong and babbling streams. Add in a herd of friendly goats and the promise of cheese at the end, and you have an afternoon to remember!

We’ve just confirmed our schedule for early autumn goat hikes and the dates are listed below. Cost is $10/person and includes a sampling of our homemade goat cheeses and, for anyone interested, a milking lesson with our patient does. Contact us to reserve a spot.

Upcoming goat hikes:

  • Sunday September 20, 2-4pm
  • Saturday October 3, 2-4pm
  • Sunday October 11, 2-4pm
  • Sunday November 8, 2-4pm

goat hike at Ten Apple Farm

Monthly goat hikes at Ten Apple Farm are back!

If you’re looking for a fun outdoor activity, come on out to Ten Apple Farm for our monthly goat hikes. You’ll hike 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. Children must be at least 6 years old and accompanied by an adult. 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. $10 per adult, $5 for kids. Minimum: 6 people; Maximum: 15 people. Contact us to RSVP. Upcoming dates:

  • Saturday June 6, 10am-12pm
  • Sunday July 12, 10am-12pm
  • Sunday August 9, 10am-12pm

We can also schedule private group hikes for groups of 6-15 people with an option for lunch from the farm. Ten Apple Farm goat hikes are a great team building activity for small companies or corporate groups. Contact us to schedule your group!
