Seasonal Activities: Winter Season
Visit the farm Tuesday - Saturday from 10-5 pm + Sunday 12-5.
Come warm by the fire of the woodstove and enjoy a hot cup of cider (available Friday-Sunday).
Pigs are deep bedded in the barn warm and snug for winter. Cows are out grazing their stockpiled fescue while being rotated around the farm. Goats are finishing off the seasons greenery to help cut back on invasive species encroachment next spring.
No admission fees during winter.
Spring Season (March-May)
Spring on the farm is all about baby chicks, baby goats, and calves! It's a beautiful time of new birth on the farm as the green slowly creeps up the mountainside, and the creeks swell with the season's rains. Come take a peak at the goodness of life on the farm.
No admission fees during the spring.
Summer Season (June-August)
You can purchase meat, visit our animals, picnic by the creek, and pick your own organic berries. Our estimated berry season schedule (please call or check our home page for exact berry picking availability):
- Blueberries: Mid June-Late July
- Black Raspberries: Late June-July
- Blackberries: July-Mid September
- Red Raspberries: September- Mid October
Another main attraction is our baby chicks -- we get new batches of chicks about twice over the summer so come by often. Pigs are out on pasture and in the woods, broilers are being rotated through the fields, and the creek is always calling your name for a nice place to watch the kids be kids. There are picnic tables around that area as well, so feel free to bring a lunch and take a break from all that berry picking!
No admission charge during the summer.
