Afternoon Goat Hike or Snowshoe

Fri February 10, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Come out to the farm this February for a magical afternoon hike (or snowshoe!) through the Ten Apple Farm woods with our herd of Alpine dairy goats! Get those snowshoes ready! As soon as we get some snow, our winter goat hikes turn into winter goat snowshoeing! If conditions require it, and you need snowshoes, or would just like to try them out, we have 4-5 pairs here at the farm available to rent for an additional $10/pair (to help cover wear and tear). Snowshoes are also available to rent at Pineland Farms, just a 5 minute drive up the road from our farm.

A Ten Apple Farm goat hike is a two hour educational and recreational goat experience. The winter hike consists of an approximately one mile loop through the woods on lightly groomed trails. There is some steep terrain. Children must be at least 5 years old and accompanied by an adult. (Children 4 and under must be carried, children 5-6 should plan to hold a adult’s hand during the hike). Along the way we’ll talk about the wide variety of things goats are used for, including dairy, fiber, land management, as pack animals, and you’ll learn a thing or two about raising and caring for goats. After the hike, you’ll be able to sample some fresh goat milk and cookies!

This hike is booked through Airbnb Experiences and is limited to 10 people, $22/adults, $15/kids 5-12


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve made some important changes to our hikes. Our primary concern is safety, for our guests, our animals, and ourselves. At this time we are NOT requiring masks to be worn while outdoors on hikes. For the foreseeable future we will:
  • Keep our experience outdoors as much as possible—please use the bathroom before arriving at the farm! (Our home bathroom will be available to guests who need one.)
  • Following guidelines from state and national CDC, we are not requiring masks to be worn while outside at the farm. 
  • Limit public hikes to a maximum of 15 guests (10 guests for Airbnb hikes)
  • Serve milk outdoors, with fresh cookies in individual bags
  • Our safety waiver is now available online — by purchasing a ticket, you agree to the waiver for yourself and all members of your party, including any minors in your party. We ask that you share the waiver with everyone that will accompany you to the farm.

Postponement due to weather: We can’t take the goats out if it’s raining. We will be watching the weather and temperature forecast in the days leading up to the hike and will let you know within 24 hours of the hike time whether the hike is a go or not.

Cancellation policy: If we have to postpone the hike due to weather, we will reschedule you on the next available hike, schedule a new make up date for the hike, or offer you a refund. If you cancel at least 7 days prior to the hike date we can offer you a full refund.  We can’t issue refunds without at least 7 days notice.
