Our farm’s direct marketing model is based on transparency. We love for our customers to come see where their food is coming from! All the group tours and consulting are by appointment only.
Self Guided Tours- free
You are welcome to come walk around the farm Monday through Saturday before 5 p.m. The Wednesday market is a great time to come take a stroll, pick up some fresh produce and baked goods, and see the farmers in action during a productive work day. Please be mindful that the farmers are working diligently. We are happy to answer a few questions while we work, however we can’t stop to give a tour without prior notice.
School Groups – $6 per person; $125 for groups 25-50; $250 for groups over 50 people
Tours for schools groups last a little over an hour and include a tour of the whole farm. Growing practices, animal husbandry, composting, and greenhouse work are all covered. Your group is welcome to use our picnic tables and grassy areas to eat lunch if you’d like to bring your own for an additional fee, depending on the group size.
Garden Clubs and other Adult Groups- $8 per person (minimum of 10 people). Groups smaller than 10 will be $75 for the group.
These tours will last about an hour. We will walk you around vegetable fields and our fruit orchard, discussing most aspects of the farm including growing practices, increasing soil fertility through compost, cover crops and amendments, and animal husbandry.
Want to start your own farm or need help making your garden more productive?
We are happy to talk with potential farmers or land owners who are looking to start a farm. With 11 years of growing experience, we’ve learned heaps through our successes and failures. However, it has taken 11 years to obtain our insights. Farming on a small scale requires knowledge in a lot of areas: soil fertility, crop production practices, marketing, business, etc. and it takes a lot of time to soak up all this information. If you are on limited income and want to learn how to farm, a season or more of apprenticing is our recommendation. As an apprentice on our farm, you would learn all aspects of running your own farm during a 10 month season.
Nothing beats experience, but paying for a consultation is simply a way for you to obtain much of this information in a short amount of time.
Please contact us to discuss your situation and we’ll determine a cost based on your needs. If you are young/low income we will help you for a reduced rate.
Basic initial consultation fees:
If we come to your farm/land: $150 for 2 hours plus travel costs.
If you would like to come here to get a tour of our farm and talk about possibilities for setting up your farm , it’s $60 for 1 hour.
