Join our local guides on a behind-the-scenes tour of the farm. They will tell you about our goats and the history of the farm in the edible flower garden, before touring the milking parlor and loafing barn, with a peek into the dairy and a walk out into the pasture to meet the goats. Finish with a tasting session of our farmstead cheese upstairs in the hayloft.
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 last up to 90 minutes.
New for autumn 2019! A full circle 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.
