Gates Open Need-To-Knows

We’re excited for you to visit! Here are some things you need to know:

  • Bring cash and a cooler! Some of the farms will have product available for purchase, and some of the activities offered are paid activities.
  • NO pets. We love all animals, but kindly leave your furry friends at home.
  • Wear appropriate footwear. The ground may be bumpy and uneven!
  • Plan for the weather! Bring a coat and rubber boots! ‘Tis the season for mud and muck and you will find lots of both on the farm if it has been raining!
  • Please respect signage and do not go where you are not allowed. These farms are working farms and the signs and boundaries are there for YOUR safety.
  • There will be smells, and bugs, and manure. You are visiting farms!

Washrooms will be available at all locations on the tour.
