We love having visitors on the farm!
We will have a few free public events every year, as well as private tours, visits (and baby goat cuddles!), and some topic-specific workshops.
We can also bring the animals to you!
Contact us for pricing, scheduling, and other details.
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.
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.
We offer lower-key, casual visits (and chances to feed and play with the baby goats!) for smaller groups.
Margaret has been involved in both youth development programs and adult outreach and education for years, and can help plan a more formal educational tour for groups of any size. 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 and hands-on experience.
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!
Pricing varies with group size, special requests, and duration of tour. Contact us for more information!
