Take a leisurely hike through Chestnut Hill Farm’s beautiful grounds and trails, accompanied by one or more of our friendly goats! For more details, see dedicated post.

Updated (8/28/20 9:13 am): Although the dedicated post had the correct details, above I accidentally listed the Meet & Greet with the ARHS Principal as Friday instead of last night. I hope no one who wanted to participate missed it due to my error.
