FARM VISITS 

 

 We want our customers and potential customers to visit our farm to "Know who grows your food".  We see you at the farmer's market each week and appreciate the time you take to purchase our products !   Without your commitment to buy local, organic produce we could not farm in a sustainalbe, eco-friendly manner.


Planning, planting, weeding, watering, harvesting, marketing and going to farmer's markets consume most of our time, and then some !  However, we want our regular market customers to get a chance to see the farm that they support. 


Several times a year, we plan farm gatherings around our regular work and would love to have you visit.  You can even volunteer to help out at these gatherings !  We will keep you informed with handouts at the markets and  on our farm email notification list.


Please remember - we farm primarily to provide organic food to our customers, NOT as an entertainment farm.  If you are looking to visit a real working farm, this is it.  If you are searching for a farm that actually grows what it sells at the market, (a vetting tour) you have found it.

 

 

Farm Rules and Guidelines

Waivers must be signed 

No Smoking or other tobacco products 

No pets or other animals Please do not bring pets/animals due to contamination risk.  

Stay off equipment, fences and gates. It is not safe to climb on, over or under these items.

Watch your step - the ground is rough and uneven. There are no sidewalks on the farm, wear appropriate footwear.

Watch your children - do NOT allow them to wander. We are a real farm, not an amusement park.

Gates - leave them as you found them. If they were closed, close them. If they were open, leave them open.

Restricted areas - do not enter for safety reasons - i.e. bees, snakes, seedlings, livestock, planted area, etc.

We recommend that you wear clothes and footwear that you don't mind getting dirty. If it has rained recently, it will be muddy at the farm, bring extra shoes/boots if desired.  You will be out of doors - no air conditioning or heating - so bring hat/cap, umbrella, sunscreen, water, insect repellant and lawn chairs for persons that cannot stand for long periods of time. 

 

  
We primarily produce vegetables on our farm and cannot guarantee that you will see the chickens and/or sheep during any one visit as it depends on their pasture rotation, the weather and what month you visit. Please don't promote this tour as a "petting zoo" for your children ! The tour is an outdoor walking tour of the garden and fields that lasts about an hour. All participants must sign a waiver. Wear walking/hiking shoes, dress for the weather, no smoking/tobacco use and no pets, please.

 

 

 

We have  "open house" events from time to time as well as seasonal tasks and walks to the garden at no charge.  To receive a notice of when we will have a farm event, market locations or need volunteers,  Join our Facebook page or sign-up for our Email updates list.
