Families with younger children are welcome to explore the farm as always, but please note that guided tours and hands-on programming for children will not be offered on weekends as in years past.
The focus of our farming operation is agricultural experimentation and production, and over the past several seasons we have worked to increasingly align our public programming with that mission. We appreciate your support as we continue to refine our offerings to best reflect the work taking place here.
