Important Farm Tour Information:

Picnic Tables – If you would like to bring lunch or purchase food from our vendors, picnic tables are available on a first come, first served basis. You are welcome to bring blankets to sit on in the event no tables are available. You may also wish to bring handi-wipes for the children.

Dress Code – Please ask parents to dress children appropriately. The farm is generally cooler and muddier then your backyard.

Farm Market – Is open for everyone to enjoy! We sell farm fresh fruits and veggies, fresh-baked cookies, and candy, in addition to many gift items. When visiting our market, we require that each group of children have adequate adult supervision.

Behavior Problems – The Market staff may ask children who are behaving in an unsafe manner to wait for his/her group on the bus or at other designated location. Please remember that it is the responsibility of the group leaders and chaperones to supervise the children in their group.
