Farm Events
You are always welcome to come to the farm for a walk and to visit the animals!

The events listed below are open to all ages and to both CSA members and non-members. We ask that you consider leaving a few dollars behind to help with the costs incurred when offering these events. There is a payment box in the Farm Stand at the end of the driveway. Thanks so much! It is best for us if you keep your pets at home during these events. See you on the farm!
