Farm Visits

As a working farm, we are not currently open to the general public for visits. Farm tours are only provided for customers and must be scheduled in advance.

* Please note that we do not have a public restroom.*

 

If you are a customer who would like to visit our farm, here is what to expect:

  • Appointments must be made in advance so that we can schedule it into our day.  

  • You will see signs on our property that indicate to visitors the importance of following biosecurity procedures. This will include the following:

    • We will ask you if, when and what types of farms have been visited prior to our farm. As a precaution, 48 hours may be required between visits (1 week for foreign visitors).

    • We will ask that you wear freshly laundered clothing and boots that you are able to step into a foot bath with or can put a boot cover over. 

  • This is a working farm. We expect all visitors to exercise common sense and to keep the following in mind: 

    • There will be bugs, mud/dirt, manure, tripping hazards, poor lighting, etc.. 

    • Make sure to dress for the weather, especially when it comes to footwear.

    • Visitors will have direct access to animal pens, so it is important that you recognize these are livestock (not pets) and the animals here are not tame. 

    • Parents are responsible for their children. Please talk to your children about the importance of not running up to animals, speaking at normal volumes (no screaming), not putting fingers/arms in pens, etc. 

    • The livestock guardian dogs that live with the sheep are not socialized to people. Do not try to interact with these dogs. Do not enter pastures. 

    • Pets (including family dogs) are not allowed.
