The Original Hugs and Hike with the Herd | Kids Out and About Hudson Valley

The Original Hugs and Hike with the Herd

Visitors will get to meet our herd of rescued goats up close for hugs and photos before we venture on a 1/2 mile hike through the forest where we forage for their favorite treats. Did you know that spending time around animals reduces stress and increases feelings of happiness? You can double that when they are rescued goats! Come spend outdoor time in a small group with ample room for social distancing to meet some of the most affectionate goats there are. Visitors will get to meet and learn about each goat and breed as well as their rescue stories, behaviors and unique characteristics of the species. We are loaded with goat fun facts and corny goat puns to add a little laughter into our day! You'll also become part of the herd when we proceed to hike through marked trails on our 15 acre property with the goats, who enjoy navigating the trails and foraging along the way. Watching the goats in a natural habitat and bonding with them is truly magical. We end with extra quality time with all of the goats, who love lots of attention, allowing for plenty of hugs, scratches, and photo ops. Everyone leaves with a sticker of their favorite goat.
