Homestead Tour with Goats through the Woods
**Spring and Winter hikes** Check the weather! Bring your mudboots and warm attire if needed. We might be hiking through snow and/or mud! Every morning at 10 am our goat herd is released from their over night paddock to forage through our wooded dune lands. The farm is surrounded by the county’s recreational public Manistee forest with hundreds of acres of pure Michigan nature along beautiful sandy hiking trails. Guests begin the hike at the rendezvous goat barn with the goats. Here is where our goats can be pet and introduced, starting the hour long easy walking trail hike. During this gentle jaunt through the woods our guests will get to know our friendly goats by being able to hand feed treats, learn what shrubs are the goats’ favorite forage, and have any extra belongings (such as a water bottle) be panniered by our goats. Although this experience is routinely beginning every morning, sometimes we can flexibly arrange our goat hikes to start at anytime from 8am till noon. Our hike does wind in and off of our farm property as well so our guests will be given stories of farm life and all the ins and outs of what it takes to raise these wonderful creatures.

Tarot on the Lake
We will do a meditation to center, discuss your needs, and then do a 30 minute reading per participant. The reading will bring clarity with spirit providing both predictive and prescriptive solutions. Review of participant: Suzanne is a gifted medium who instantly tapped into a meaningful connection. Steele eased my first-time jitters with her kindness, taking her time, finding deeper guidance than I ever expected from a single reading. I found her reading possessed spot-on relevance and I felt her presence was warm, inviting, full of light and encouragement. I highly recommend her experience to anyone seeking higher guidance in any aspect of life, whether you've had prior readings with other mediums or if this is your first experience. I will definitely continue working with Suzanne because she exudes generosity of spirit and compassion beyond measure. Her reading was a pleasure, something I wish to experience again. Jenn Diamond
