When you get your donuts, you can also buy tomato plants, fresh handmade apple butter, several varieties of local honey, and more!
You should allow between 30 and 60 minutes for your Farm Safari depending upon how long you like to pull over and watch the animals. Sometimes there is a line of 20 minutes or so especially from about 10 to 12 noon but even in the line you will see some animals!
Hope to see you soon!
*Note: We changed dates from the 30th to the 29th due to the very wet weather forecasted for Saturday. If you have already purchased tickets for the 30th, you should have received an email from us with a bunch of options for you.

On our spring farm field trips we give a farm talk to learn about the habitat of our farm and the equipment we use, and spend time viewing our farm animal
Bring your group out to the farm in the spring to help plant the pumpkins. Your group gets to go out into the field with a farmer and plant a row of pumpkin seeds. Then, we label this row and in the fall when you come back for a fall farm tour, you can pick the pumpkins that you planted.
This is educational for children; they get to see how real farmers work!
We enjoy sharing the diversity of the farm ecosystem with pre-school and elementary school children in our spring farm tours. We think it is important for the children to connect back with the land and gain some basic knowledge of the natural world.
On our farm we have many animals: pigs, a llama, alpacas, cows, goats, rabbits, turkeys, chickens, sheep and more! Children love to check out the farm animals and the animals love the attention!

Notes for School Buses
Sometimes school buses coming from the south prefer to avoid the hard curves of Old Cornelius Pass Road below the farm.
An alternate route is to take Cornelius Pass Road to the top of the hill at Skyline Boulevard, turning left/west. Then turn left/south at the quick stop sign and then turn right into the driveway a quarter mile from the last turn.
