Join our local guides on a walking tour of the farm. Walk alongside our milking herd, Anatolian shepherds, donkeys and Gentleman Jim the alpaca. Say hello to this year's kids in their own pasture before strolling our berry fields and the Secret Garden. Spot peacocks and wild turkeys in the orchard with the beehives. Leave with a whole new appreciation of where your food grows, and two farmstead cheeses on the house.
It's a walk of just over a mile on uneven ground.
Do bring your kids to visit any time during open hours, especially in the spring when we will have our kids in small pens in the main farm corral. We don’t recommend farm tours for younger children, because they involve talking, listening and standing around.
Tours follow county guidelines for small gatherings. Up to 10 people only. Please wear your mask.
Tours last up to 90 minutes.
Our Family Tour is for little ones under 10 years, with plenty of playtime and cheese tasting.
No ticket necessary for babes in arms.
An extended tour of the farm.
The dairy farm is the heart of our business, yet we are not simply dairy farmers. We collect all the water used in the dairy, so that the edible flower garden can be watered, and the cheesemakers can pick fresh petals to finish the edible flower chevre. We grow olallieberries in fields spread with composted goat manure, and make jam and jelly with the berries to sell in the farm shop. We bought the adjoining property with its barn and well and embarked on a nine-year project to build an irrigation pond that will keep our pasture green, protecting the creekside habitat. We hold exquisite wedding ceremonies by the creek, and parties, dinners and retreats in our barns. All of this protects the health and welfare of our staff and our animals and our dairy business. It makes us sustainable.
A very personal and in-depth perspective on running a small farm.
Includes our Water District, weather station, arable fields, Secret Garden, bees and orchard, Upper Barn, and - of course - the goats. Adults only.
Please expect some muddy ground.
Tours go ahead in rainy weather.
