Visit goats and get an ice cream at Smiling Hill Farm

Written by: Aimsel Ponti

Sometimes only two things will put a smile back on your face: visiting with a cute goat and having some ice cream. Both goals can be easily achieved with a visit to Smiling Hill Farm in Westbrook.  They’ve got plenty of goats and other animals for you to frolic with and feed,  then you can feed your sweet tooth at the Dairy Store where dozens of homemade flavors are available. P.S. As an added bonus, once the snow flies, Smiling Hill Farm is a terrific place to go cross-country skiing.
