As the green grass grows and the sun fills the air with warmth, the goats of Simmons Farm welcome You to join them for a stroll through our bucolic pastures. Enjoy the company of your Caprine friend as they escort you through our scenic farm. Enjoy the simple pleasures in time spent outside in nature. The goats will meander along, stopping often to snack and nibble on whatever is still sweet and green all around them. During a global pandemic it is important to get outside and enjoy the company of others, human and goat and this is a perfect adventure to cover it all! In our effort to bring joy and adventure to our guests, we offer fantastically fun Goat hikes throughout the week and on weekends. Join us for an hour and a half goat hike around historic Simmons Farm, hikes will be led by Farmer Karla and her crew of adventurous, fun loving goats. Each participant will get their own goat to walk on a leash. There will be stops along the way to let the goats nibble, throughout the hike you will have the full attention of your farmer and you can ask all the burning questions you have ever wanted to know about Simmons Farm, farming in New England, the life of a farmer, or something else, just ask.
You will see gorgeous views of Narragansett Bay from the Vista at the top of the farm, we will pass a babbling brook and meander through open pastures. We will visit our pig friends, peek in on our group of belted Galloway cows, affectionately known as the Oreo cookie cows and our funny flock of barnyard bird friends, the ducks and chickens will be there to greet you on arrival. Please wear close toed shoes as we are walking through fields and pastures. As the weather warms up, it may be wise to bring a bottle of water, (we do have some for sale in the farmstand) and apply sunscreen and bug spray before you arrive. It is my advice that families with young children, five or under, only need one goat to hike with. It will be more enjoyable for both you and your children. Goats + little tikes = wrangling greased piglets 😂😂😂 1 goat = lots of fun + cuddles. The other hikers age 10 and up in the group would need to purchase a hike only ticket. This is only my advice, you are free to purchase as many general admission tickets as you would like. Thank you so much and I look forward to hiking with you 🤩❤️🐐 Karla
When we arrive back at the farm stand we will either Cool off with a refreshing cup of lemonade or warm up with a cup of hot chocolate! (depends on the season) I can't wait to hike with you!!!
