Ozokwenza

A Ten Apple Farm goat hike is a two hour recreational and educational goat experience. You'll meet your hosts (and our herd of Alpine dairy goats), and hear about their 15 years of experience with goats and living on a small family farm. Once we've met the goats and other animals residents of the farm, we’ll set off on a hike through the Ten Apple Farm woods with the goats. The hike consists of an approximately one mile loop trail through our woods on fairly well maintained trails. 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. There's lots of time for interacting with the goats, asking questions, or just soaking in the Maine woods and these adorable, fun animals. We end the experience with fresh goat milk and homemade cookies!

Please note: Due to COVID-19 safety protocols, we can only do goat milking lessons with private groups, and can only have 4-5 people in the barn at a time. Thank you for understanding.

Please note: On the hike there is some steep terrain. Children must be at least 5 years old and accompanied by an adult. (Children under 4 must be carried).
Other things to note
The hike is not strenuous, but there is a little bit of steep terrain in 2 spots. We have rope railings on the trail to assist with getting up and down in those spots, but guests who have bad knees, hips, or other difficulty mobility-wise may not find this to be an appropriate activity.

Lapho uzoba khona

A Ten Apple Farm goat hike starts at our 1901 traditional New England connected Farmhouse and homestead. We have spent the past 14 years restoring the homestead's agricultural heritage. We are a diversified farm, so there's a little bit of everything here, and something for everyone: goats, pigs, sheep, poultry, a large garden, fruit trees, and 18 acres of beautiful Maine woods and trails, on which we hike with the goats.

Ilinganiswe ku-4.97 kokungu-5 ngokusuka kokushiwo abanye okungu-79.

My family of five had a wonderful afternoon learning about goat farming and taking a beautiful walk in the woods. My kids had a ball and we did too. I would highly recommend booking!

What a very special treat - to go on a walk-about with goats and a sheep that thinks he's a goat through the snowy woods! Karl & Margaret were great hosts who took time to educate and excite us about their work with goats and their family farm. We look forward to returning with friends.

Hiking with Karl and Margarets' goats and learning more about how they've built up their farm over the years was a delightful experience. It was so fun to meet all the goats, sheep and pigs. And (spoilers ahead) we appreciated the surprise treat of goats milk and cookies!

Hiking with Goats with Karl & Margaret was an absolutely wonderful experience. Karl & Margaret were so kind and personable and it was fascinating to hear their life story. My family and I loved the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and the wonderful company of the goats (and Phillip the sheep!). We learned so much about goats and the wonderful creatures that they are - not to mention, the goat milk that we were able to try at the end of the experience was so fresh and delicious. This is an experience that I would highly recommend! Thank you, Karl, Margaret and all the lovely critters on the farm!
