Apple Acres Farm

Farm Tours

There are many reasons visitors take a farm tour or seek out one of our unique farm experiences. While some do have prior farming or homesteading experience, many do not! Most simply are curious about what it's like to open up a hive, spend time with cute little goats, forage for wild mushrooms with an expert, or learn about the realities of off-grid living. We like to think about our farm as a living laboratory (farm-oratory?) where people can experience a vibrant, sustainable, and human-scaled farming. 

Our  current seasonal tour offerings include maple syrup making (early spring only), goat happy hour, wild mushroom foraging, backyard beekeeping, regenerative farm tour, off-grid living tour, and farm stand + skill share (free each Friday in the summer). Below you will find a description of each tour as well as a schedule of tour offerings.

For tours, we offer a 25% reduced rate for children 13 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.

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, or marvel at the superorganism that is a honey bee hive (especially when it reaches 60,000+ bees in the peak of summer!). Spending time on a small-scale, regenerative farm not only allows us to connect more deeply with our food and natural systems, it's also fun and relaxing. 

 

Don't believe us? Check out the farm tour reviews below or just come out and experience the fascinating antics of our free-range chicken flock. Those tiny dinosaurs provide endless entertainment as they go about their daily lives!

FARM TOUR REVIEWS

Honey bee queen

This was a really fun way to learn about bees and beekeeping! I thought I knew a bit about bees already, but Heather taught us so much more! We could tell she genuinely cared for the bees' welfare, as well as that of the other animals on her property. Now, I'm looking forward to learning more about beekeeping, and maybe have bees of my own in the future!
