We fell in love with goat hiking on a pack goat trip in the Wind River Range in Wyoming with the father of goat packing, John Mionczynski, during The Year of the Goat . We wanted to introduce the activity to Maine, and invite farm visitors to make connections to the outdoors and with these fun and beautiful animals.
A Ten Apple Farm goat hike is a two hour recreational and educational goat experience. You’ll hike through the Ten Apple Farm woods with our herd of Alpine dairy goats. The hike consists of an approximately one 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!
Tickets are $15 per adult, $10 for teens and seniors, $5 for kids (5-12). To ensure a quality goat hiking experience for everyone and make sure all hikers get plenty of goat time, we are limiting afternoon hikes to 15 hikers and evening hikes to 12 hikers.
We are now taking all reservations for hikes through our website. Please visit our EVENTS PAGE for a full list of upcoming hikes, workshops & other events.
