Choose from four tours for your group - each a new perspective on farm life. Get a glimpse of the fun in the photos below.
Springtime on the Farm - mid-April through May
Welcome springtime with a tour of our newest baby animals, which may include chicks, goat kids, a calf and piglets. Learn about their special care and feeding, tour our historic barn and finish up in the garden planting pumpkin seeds. Return in the fall to visit their pumpkins and choose a pumpkin from our indoor, mud-free pumpkin patch. Ages 2 and up. Minimum age strictly adhered to.
Kids on the Farm- June through Sept, Jan through mid April
Explore our farm with hands-on fun as we meet our goats, ponies, sheep and rabbits and tour the barn, full of local history. Learn interesting animal facts then move inside to experience the old-fashioned skill of wool carding. Children create fuzzy sheep from real wool to take home. Ages 2 and up.
Fall at the Farm- October only
Experience the harvest season in a traditional way. Pet a pony, feed our chickens and work on barn chores with child-size pails and rakes. Tour the garden and pumpkin patch. Children finish up in our harvest-themed, mud-free, indoor pumpkin patch. Enjoy your day in a non-commercial, relaxing atmosphere. Ages 2 and up.
Pioneer Days in the Log Cabin- November only
Visit our log cabin and imagine life in the 1890's. Storytelling and active play let children experience how pioneers lived without our modern conveniences. Children participate in activity stations learning to grind wheat, churn butter, knead dough, create a fabric and paper quilt, play dress-up, card wool, pump water and other living history skills. Relive history just like Laura and Mary in the Little House books. Ages 3 and up. Tour Fees
Costs are $85 for first 15 participants. After 15, add $5.50 for each extra child and $2.50 for each extra adult. Staff is free. For groups with less than 15 participants, the minimum fee per tour is $85. Additional pumpkin fee for Fall at the Farm tour.
