You have 4 choices:
Farm Tour (From May to October)
Farmers Linda and Tony will show your group the life of a sustainable farmer, touring through our organic vegetable gardens, goat pen, eggmobile, beehives, grain fields and grazing pastures. You'll have a chance to collect eggs, feed the goats and pick and eat vegetables right out of the garden.
Friends and Families: Tours are 90 minutes. Adults $10, children ages 3-12 $5, children 2 and under free (Minimum $30). If you'd like to take our products home, we have eggs, vegetables, honey and chicken and goat meat for sale.
Schools and Large Groups: Tours are from 90 minutes to 3 hours. Maximum 40 people. For safety reasons, children must be accompanied by adults in a 6:1 ratio. Email for pricing.
Hiking (Available Year-round)
Our property is quite wild and offers serious hikers opportunities to explore sunny meadows, quiet meditative creeks and wetlands, and dark leafy forests. The terrain is rough and many parts are unmaintained. Paths are marked and a map is provided. Hiking is free but you must reserve a time and sign our waiver. Email for reservations.
Foraging (Spring, Summer and Fall)
Foragers love our property! We often host foraging hikes led by experienced foragers with a vast knowledge of the wild edibles and medicinals that grow on this property from early spring to late fall. Foraging hikes are a minimum of 2 hours for any group between 5-20 people. Foraging fee per group is $250- $300. Email for more details.
Evening Walk-A-Goat (From May to October)
We should really say “browse” a goat. This event is definitely not like walking your dog. The purpose of an early evening stroll with the goats is to get them out foraging after the hottest part of the day, before they settle in for the night. Unlike sheep, cows and horses that graze on grass, goats prefer to browse the broad-leaf plants, trees and shrubs that line our fields and roads including many invasive species like strangling dog-vine, Virginia creeper, buckthorn and poison ivy! You will meet the goats in their yard, choose your favourite, attach a leash and away we go! Only the adults are leashed because the baby’s won’t stray far from their mamas. The happy herd with randomly stop and tuck in to whatever brings them joy and we will stop and chat and move on when ready. There’s not a whole lot of exercise but the evening is a lovely time of day and the views are worth it.
60-90 minutes, $5 a person, maximum 6 people.
