Experience the Farm from Home

Our farmhands are busy making onsite activities available to you at home. Check back weekly for more back to basics activities.

NEW Guided Outdoor Tours

The wonder of the farm doesn't stop because the farmhouse is temporarily closed. We are now offering guided tours of the grounds. Safe, educational and picturesque, they are great for the whole family to enjoy. Follow up your tour with a nature walk or picnic.
