Wat je gaat doen

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.

Waar je naartoe gaat

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.

Visiting and hiking with the goats + Phillip, Margaret and Karl at Ten Apple Farm was such a delight! Such a treat to get out in the Maine woods and be a part of the herd! The scenery was stunning, Karl and Margaret are so kind and passionate about their farm and goats and Phillip are SO hilarious and cute! The homemade cookies and goatmilk were the icing on the cake! We have been enjoying reading our Maine community cookbook that we picked up from the farm and are excited to try some of the recipes soon! Everyone should try a goat hike if they are even remotely close to Gray, Maine!

We had so much fun hiking with the goats! Karl and Margaret were so nice, and taught us so much about the animals! And the cookies made by Margaret were AMAZING! We will definitely go back next time we’re up in Maine!

Thoroughly enjoyed our time at Ten Apple Farm. My almost 6 yr old granddaughter enjoyed walking with Boris one of the young goats. It was a very enjoyable 2 hours!

Oh what fun we had hiking with the goats. We even had our picture taken with the baby goats. Karl and Margaret were so gracious. Not only was it fun but informative and interesting. The final touch of cookies and milk was a delicious treat.

It was a charming experience being able to traverse the woods on Karl & Margaret's property with their goats (and sheep!) I would recommend this experience for anyone wanting a short and relaxing hike with some goat friends!
