*Starting in the 2018 season*:
This season, we will be giving public tours every 3rd Saturday of the month at 9:30 am sharp. The tour will be 45 minutes long, and will take place rain or shine, so dress for the outdoors! Walk-ins welcome; no need to schedule with us. We are asking for a donation of $5, or pay-what-you-can, per person.

Come to one, a few, or all of them. Every month and season the farm looks different! We hope you can join us and to learn more about how your food is grown on our farm!

*NEWS FOR CLASSES FOR 2018 SEASON*
Thank you for your interest in classes! This season (2018) we are taking a hiatus on having workshops at the farm in order to re-work classes and add to our actual workshop space. We are planning on creating a more kitchen-friendly atmosphere for our workshops in order to expand our offerings. Having a stove and other kitchen amenities would allow us to have workshops such as cheesemaking, soap-making, sourdough bread-baking, canning, and more. Our plan is to, starting in the 2019 season, offer a "homesteading" series of classes, including not only kitchen classes, but gardening and permaculture classes as well. Stay tuned, and don't forget to sign up for our newsletter for updates! Thanks everyone!
