Snow has arrived, and so have our Winter goat hikes! Whether on foot, hoof, or snowshoe (snow conditions depending), Winter goat hikes are a great way to get out and enjoy the beauty of the Maine woods and Maine goats in Wintertime. We’ve got 3 upcoming hikes in December and January, including what will certainly be especially festive Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day hikes. We plan to schedule a few more later in January and February, and will announce those dates soon.

Here are the three December / January hikes coming up:

Sunday, Dec 24, 1 pm
Monday, January 1, 2 pm – FULL
Sunday, January 7, 10 am – FULL
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. Snowshoes or crampons (not provided) are often a good idea, depending on weather and snow conditions. Check with us prior to the hike about snow conditions. 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] with your name, # in your party, and a contact phone number (cell preferred).

See you at the farm!
