(WNYT/NBC News) – A farm in Middle Grove, New York, has seen business skyrocket thanks to a new option on their snowshoe trail: Goats!
“Into The Woods Farm” owner Phaedra Zoe Stasyshyn says she had no idea how popular it would be, especially during a pandemic.
Snowshoers choose the length of the trek, and whether to have goats or not. Most people choose the goats.
“Where I would typically run five snowshoes a season, I have three snowshoes a day, straight up through March 1st right now,” she says.
Stasyshyn says it’s been a perfect blend of our eagerness to get out, and a love for goats.
“A lot of people say when you have the animals along on the hikes with you, you forget about the exercise part,” Stasyshyn says.
