Farm Tours

We love to share the farm with others! We like to think about our farm as a living laboratory (farm-oratory?) where visitors can experience and connect with a vibrant, sustainable, and human-scaled farm. Over the years we've expanded our unique farm tour offerings as we've grown and diversified our farming practices. Our farm animals feature prominently in our tours, which is only right as they are our most dedicated farm workers!

 

So if you've ever been curious about what it's like to open up a honey bee hive, spend time with cute little goats, forage for wild mushrooms with an expert, or learn about the realities of off-grid living, we've got you covered! Our farm tours are also family friendly and we are happy to accommodate families with children.

Our current tour offerings include maple syrup making (early spring only), goat happy hour, wild mushroom foraging, natural beekeeping, regenerative farm tour, and off-grid living tour. Below you will find a description and schedule for various tour offerings.

We are also happy to host small private events and gatherings. These have included school tours, small group retreats, and bachelorette celebrations. We enjoy working with each group to develop a tailored tour package. Please contact us for more information and to schedule your private farm event!

 

We try to offer tours and experiences at convenient times. If you are interested in a tour on a different day or time than what is offered, please let us know! We will do our best to adjust tour offerings to better suit your schedule when possible. Typically, we like at least one week advance notice for each request. We appreciate your interest in our farm tours as well as your understanding for our need to balance daily farm work with sharing the farm with visitors!

For tours, we offer a 25% discount for children 12 and younger (coupon code FarmKids) as well as a discount of 15% for groups of 4 or more (coupon code GroupFun). These offers do not apply to retreats or workshops.

Farming isn't for everyone, but farm tours and experiences are!

 

It's hard not to fall in love with Niko and Nibler, our two Nigerian dwarf goats, marvel at the superorganism that is a honey bee hive (especially when it reaches 60,000+ bees in the peak of summer!), laugh at the fascinating antics of our free-range chicken flock, or be astounded at diversity of wild mushrooms growing all around us.

 

Spending time on a small-scale, regenerative farm not only allows visitors to connect more deeply with the natural world (of which our sustainable food system is a part), but it's also fun and relaxing. Don't believe us? Check out our farm tour reviews below.

FARM TOUR REVIEWS

Honey bee queen

Heather’s property is gorgeous and her chickens and goats were a fun addition to the experience. She is very knowledgeable, friendly and kind and we learned a lot about wild mushrooms!
