There’s a program at Chestnut Hill Farm that has been too popular for me to promote. Dates keeps selling out. But it looks like there’s actually a few upcoming openings, including one this Saturday. (If you’re interested, you better act quickly.)
The program is Hike with Goats:
Take a leisurely hike through Chestnut Hill Farm’s beautiful grounds and trails, accompanied by one or more of our friendly goats! Goats are naturally playful and curious creatures. They love to follow the leader and stick together, which makes them perfect hiking companions! Hiking with goats is a fun and unique way to spend some time in nature and make some cuddly goat friends at the same time.
Your reservation gets you and your group of family or friends an hour-long experience with a friendly goat on its own harness and leash. You will first learn how to walk with the goat, and then you’ll be accompanied by a farm staff member as you and your new goat friend make your way around the farm and its trails. Bring your patience and sense of adventure; goats are friendly but they can sometimes be stubborn or want to wander off-path, so they may need to be lured with treats (don’t worry, we’ll have plenty of goat treats!).
Below are pics from hikes and events over the past couple of years that The Trustees of Reservations have shared on their website and/or the Chestnut Hills Farm Facebook page:
The registration cost for up to four people is $76 per TTOR member family, or $95 per non-member family.
