Please note

All tour start and stop times are pre-established. It is important that you arrive on time in order to have a complete tour. We can accommodate a shorter tour; however, visitors will not experience all that we have to offer.

In the fall, an indoor eating space is available by reservation for groups that want to bring a lunch to eat before or after the tour. A visit to our gift shop can also be arranged. Groups over the age of 21 can also visit the Tap Room as part of their tour.

As a farm, our celebrations, activities, and hours change by the season and day of the week. Learn what’s happening now and year round.
