Guernsey Cow and Calf Tour

This tour is approximately an hour long and focuses on our mother Guernsey cows and their calves. Do you want dairy products without separating mother cows from their babies? This is the tour for you—come and see how our calves nurse their mothers and live naturally with them. Are you interested in a cow share but want to see the cows first? This a great opportunity to get to know several of our cows up close and possibly see the rest of the herd across the fence. You’ll have the chance to pat and brush the cows and see how they live. We’ll walk out to their pasture and see them in their own environment. You’ll need to wear closed-toed sturdy shoes and be prepared to walk a short distance to the pasture. $85 for first two people, $40 for each additional person, infants in arms are free.

Guernsey Goat Mother and Baby Tour

This tour is approximately half an hour and takes place near our driveway. It’s perfect for those who have mobility restrictions—ask us about the possibilities if you need us to bring the goats to your car so you can stay seated. You’ll get to meet some of our friendly mother and baby goat pairs, or other friendly goats. The goats would love to do informal goat yoga with you, snuggle, or show off their goat cuteness and antics. $45 for first two people, $20 for each additional person, infants in arms are free.

Meet Chickens and Gather Your Own Rainbow Eggs

Do you want to be the farmer for the day? Or give your child a chance to go on their own real hunt for naturally colored “Easter” eggs? Or simply meet the chickens before you buy our eggs? This is the tour for you! We’ll introduce you to some of our chickens (yes,many of them do have names and we can tell them apart!), and you’ll get to gather a dozen eggs yourself to take home with you. We may see some goats and Livestock Guardian Dogs along the way. $50 for first two people, $20 for each additional person, infants in arms are free. If you would like to gather additional eggs, each additional dozen is $10. This tour is approximately 35-45 minutes in length.
