Whether you're looking for a fun afternoon for the family or an engaging trip for a class or youth group, we've got you covered.
Tours and Field Trips
Margaret has been involved in both youth development programs and adult outreach and education for years. Let us know what animals or aspects of the farm you're most interested in (goats, cattle, poultry, dairy, etc) and we'll put together a fun hands-on experience.
Traveling Barnyard and Baby Goat Parties
Want the farm to come to you instead? We'll travel! Particularly in the spring and summer, we can load some of the younger goats and a few chickens into the minivan and bring the farm to your location. We've done birthday parties, corporate events, neighborhood gatherings, traveling educational tours, and more!

We are a working farm, and while we try and keep a tidy operation, farm life is messy! Be prepared for manure, mud, and uneven surfaces when visiting. Dress appropriately - long pants are recommended, close-toed shoes are mandatory. Don't wear anything you don't want to get dirty!
We do not tolerate aggressive animals on the farm, but cannot always predict how our animals will act or react around strangers. Please do not enter any pens or enclosures without permission and supervision. Please do not touch or feed any animals without checking with Eric or Margaret.
We strive to maintain a high level of herd health, but even healthy animals inherently have some bacteria in/around them that may make humans sick. Wash hands before eating, drinking, or touching your face.
No smoking on farm grounds, and please leave your pets at home.
We have two farm properties about a mile apart - please be sure to clarify which location you will be visiting!
The "home farm" houses our dairy goats, poultry, and cattle.
