Come out to the farm this winter for an afternoon snowshoe (or hike) through the Ten Apple Farm woods with our herd of Alpine dairy goats! If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to spend more time with goats, here’s your chance!
A Ten Apple Farm goat hike is a two hour educational and recreational goat experience. 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 4 and under must be carried). 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 try your hand at goat milking, and enjoy some fresh goat milk and cookies! $15 per adult, $10 for teens & seniors, $5 for kids (ages 5-12).
We have a limited number of snowshoes that can be borrowed for an additional suggested donation of $5-$10. Please let us know in advance if you would like to borrow Ten Apple Farm snowshoes.
Postponement due to weather: We can’t take the goats out if it’s raining, sleeting, or if the temperature is below 15 degrees F (with wind chill). 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.
