Farm Tours

From spring to fall we offer tours of our farm, showing how we integrate our herbal business, seed business, and vegetables to offer a diverse selection of products all coming from the farm and complimenting each other in numerous ways. Tours are typically 1 to 2 hours long and outdoor picnic area is available. For more in-depth adventures and for pricing call or email us.

On-Farm Workshops

This is where some of the most exciting things happen. Here we take you on one of the many educational gardening adventures that we offer. All our on-farm events include delicious snacks, coffee and various teas. Most of the events include a delicious buffet of organic foods mostly from the farm as well. We have a new dedicated 1200 sq ft workshop building where we can easily fit groups from 10 to 30 people in comfort. Small groups, hands on, immersed in the topic and seeing it in actual operation. These workshops will give you the knowledge and the tools for you to build on.
