About your host

I grew up in the High Pyrenees where the Commons still exist and the herds happily roam the range in the summer. A shepherd and dog often accompany the ruminants in order to guard, milk and steer them towards new pastures. While the Commons no longer exist here in the Catskills, at "Roam on the Range" our goats have access to 30 open acres and are free to access the diversity of forages required…

What we’ll do

After being greeted on the farm, guests will be introduced to the goats while they are still in a fenced pasture. Once the goats are released, we will follow them in their meanderings while gently leading them to where we want to go (open meadows, woodlands, pond) depending on weather conditions and the state of the terrain. As we shepherd the goats, we will observe what they are choosing to eat…

What else you should know

The goats travel across all sorts of terrain: up and downhill, through marshes and creeks, in open fields and shady woodlands. The walkabout is at a relaxed pace and will cover around a mile.

What I’ll provide

Walking sticks.
Granola bars.

What to bring

Full pants, no rips or holes. We will be walking in a natural environment and shin sized bushes can mark your legs up.
Long sleeve shirt
Comfortable hat to keep the sun out of your eyes
Hiking shoes
Water bottle
