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 16 years of experience with goats and living on a small family farm. Once we've met the goats and the many other animals residents of the farm, we’ll set off on a hike through the Ten Apple Farm woods with the goats and Philip our sheep! The hike consists of an approximately one and a half mile loop trail through our woods on lightly groomed trails. Along the way we’ll talk about goats as pack animals, what they eat, 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: Children must be at least 5 years old and accompanied by an adult. 5 and 6 year olds should plan to hold a parent's hand during the hike. (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 difficulties with uneven or steep terrain should be aware.

Къде ще бъдете

A Ten Apple Farm goat hike starts at our 1901 traditional New England connected Farmhouse and homestead. We have spent the past 16 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, mini horses, poultry, a large garden, fruit trees, and 18 acres of beautiful Maine woods and trails, on which we hike with the goats.

We had a wonderful experience hiking with the Alpine goats on the Ten Apple Farm. Karl and Margaret very engaging hosts. The story about how they became owners of goats after they purchased these animals was fascinating!

This was a great experience! Perfect for spending some time outside with family. Our kids are 17 and 14 and they really enjoyed it! Karl and Margaret were wonderful hosts— warm and happy to share their knowledge about goats and farming. I wasn’t expecting the educational aspect which was really cool, and the cookies and goat milk were delicious!

It was a pleasure spending time on Karl and Margaret’s farm. The goats and Philip are good company on the walk through a secluded trail on the property. I will never forget the sound of the goats and Philip rushing down a gentle hill behind me and then watching as they happily pass by just as if I was part of their pack. Karl has a great sense of humor and is extremely knowledgeable.

If you are looking for something fun to do that is a little off the beaten path then this is for you! A beautiful bike with the sweetest bunch of goats, and one sheep, and 2 very knowledgeable hosts. This experience went above and beyond my expectations. I can't wait to visit again!
