  • Providence: An improbable narrative
    First, bring a mask. We'll start on the river in front the silver circle sculpture and then weave around Brown University and College Hill, stopping to talk at lookouts, colonial sites, public sculptures, hidden gardens, and, for Crimetown fans, the scene of the "Nightmare on Power Street. " Roger Williams called Rhode Island a "lively experiment." I'll do my best to report how it worked out for Rhode Island and the nation. The walk is just two miles and should take about 2 hours. It's hilly. So bring good shoes.

  • Goat Snuggle Session
    Must love goats is our motto here at Hidden Brook Acres! Come explore the daily happenings on a goat dairy farm. Immerse yourself in the presence of our nigerian dwarf goats, the miniature breed of dairy goat. Goat snuggling is always a big hit with adults and children alike! Come spend some time sitting in the pasture with our herd. Depending on the season we could be on dry lot (dirt paddock) or green grass. Kidding season begins in the spring, book for April/May sessions to snuggle newborn (goat) kids! This experience guarantees time relaxing in a field of goats, observing herd dynamics, an educational Q&A with a knowledgeable goat farmer. Relax with the herd under the “goat”zebo or bring a blanket along and sit with goats in the pasture. Our goats really enjoy the company and might even rest on the ground with you. This is an outdoor experience and weather might impact your visit. We love pets but for everyone’s safety we cannot allow visiting pets to the farm. Please feel free to b.y.o.b. just note our herd is underage.

  • Electric biking w/ scenic country views
    You get to relax and enjoy the experience of riding a battery powered mountain bike through beautiful country scenes. This is a moderate exercise activity suitable for young and older guests. The 7 speed mountain bikes are equipped with large capacity Li-Ion battery packs that allow both pedal assisted biking (PAS) at 5 different assist levels: from minimal assist all the way up to completely pedal-free cruising. Following the route we’ve planned you'll enjoy some of our quiet country roads, cruising by peaceful apple orchards, working farms with cows and horses out to pasture, lakes and streams, waterfalls and many other country settings. How do you like them apples? Stop and pick some up at Knight's Farm Apple Orchards. Sample some local honey at a farm stand, grab a quick bite at Cold Brook Cafe. Other things to note You should be comfortable with biking in general and you should expect some traffic as make your way to the more remote biking routes. All guests must sign waivers and safety documents. All guests must wear the supplied approved bike helmet (unless you have your own) while riding.

  • Learn To Scrimshaw From a Master
    I will explain the history of the art of scrimshaw from early whaling to modern. I explain the materials used and the laws governing the materials. Guests will be shown examples of all materials such as whale teeth and woolly mammoth ivory as well as several 19c original sailor made artifacts such as a whalebone fid, clothes pin and sailmakers seam rubber. We then will take a studio tour of my work space where I will show guests how to prepare materials for engraving. We will sand and polish an antique piano key ivory so it is ready to engrave. Afterwards I will demonstrate the art of engraving step by step before instructing guests how to make their own piece of scrimshaw. You will leave with a finished piece along with a small bag of ancient mammoth ivory, a scribe and ink to continue creating scrimshaw at home.
