Private Farm Tours
A close up look at several farm projects: the basics of organic gardening, raising chickens for eggs and meat, all about raising sheep and goats, how wool grows, is harvested and is turned into yarn, how solar and wind power produce about 85% of our electricity. Seasonal events too: making hay while the sun shines, preparing for winter, garden planning for spring.
*Farm tours are available for private groups of up to 10 people by reservation only, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays. Contact us for pricing and availability.
These leisurely farm walks are educational and enjoyable, for adults and children. The program varies to match the season and the interests of guests: organic gardening from soil preparation to harvesting, sex on the farm - breeding goats and sheep, raising chickens for eggs and meat,
how our renewable energy systems work.
