Things To Do At The Farm


Visit the Farm Store & Butchery

We love local! Inside our farm store we carry a variety of local products; dairy, snacks, beverages, pickled goods, jams, honey, spices, arts and crafts, and more.  The perfect spot to shop local whether its for yourself or for a friend. Our in-house butchery also keeps the fresh and frozen coolers stocked with standard and specialty meat cuts, including grounds, bones, custom sausages, and deli cuts.


Have Lunch at the Deli & Bakery

With meat sourced from our farm, produce raised by our neighbors, and breads kneaded and baked on-site, enjoy a true farm-to-fork lunch with the cleanest quality ingredients you’ll find this side of the Mississippi. Lunch is served daily from 11am-4pm and brunch on Sundays begin at 10am.  Plus, every Friday, Steve the Baker makes fresh loaves of bread that are out-of-this-world.


Attend a Class or Event

There is always something going on at the farm.  Come join us for family-friendly fun all year round.  In the winter, our butchery and culinary team teach intimate classes on a variety of hands-on topics. The spring is full of fairies and baby animals.  Summer brings barn dances and festivals, while fall kicks off a season of festivities that have been a local tradition for families near and far.


Schedule a Private Tour

We invite the public to understand where their food comes from, how agriculture works, and learn the importance of land stewardship.  Our private farm tours will ignite a passionate curiosity that will both inform and entertain.  Learn about our history, our why, and our vision for the future as we meander through buildings and pastures, brooding houses and orchards.

Bring the family!
