PRIVATE FAMILY TOURS
A visit to our organic hobby farm is a peaceful and unique outing for families. Children love finally meeting the animals they have read about in storybooks for years, discovering nature, and being farmers for a day. Parents love the gentle pace, the nurturing farm staff, and taking pictures of their children with the animals. Grandparents especially love being a part of this special outing and it is the perfect activity for grandparent visits. Families love to gather eggs from the hens, meet and brush the animals, and sip fresh milk from our dairy goats (seasonal) Our farm visits are educational, fun, and hands-on. Children enjoy interactive time in the barnyard surrounded by animals including llamas, goats, miniature sheep, miniature horses, a miniature donkey, a miniature potbellied pig, rabbits, and chickens. The tour ends in our organic garden with a playground, turkeys, geese, and chickens.

Occasionally, family groups are a bit larger and we do make allowances for this on a case by case basis and hire additional staff and extend tours as needed.

Are you doing tours? I don't see any available dates.
Our tours are popular sell out very quickly. The tour disappears from the availability calendar once it is booked. So it might seem like we are not offering any tours, while we are actually sold out with no additional tours available that month. We publish tour dates about 6 weeks in advance.

"THANK YOU! Your farm was the highlight of the week! What an amazing gem you have there. The tour was perfect and the girls were so fabulous. Everyone enjoyed the animals and it was so special to get to create such a sweet and perfect memory for our daughters first birthday! Once I get through some of the pictures I will send you some but attached is one. She really loved the Llamas! And Bonnie totally licked Josie right after this picture and caused a lot of giggles.
Thank you for opening your home to families like ours and creating such sweet memories. You will be getting many other mama's reaching out on my behalf :)
thank you again!"
