Farm Tours & Field Trips
Our farm tours and programs educate others as to the importance of saving rapidly vanishing traditional livestock breeds and crops that were raised by farmers in days past. The farm is ever-changing and can be visited at any time during the year as a way to deepen your connection to your food, broaden your understanding of how a farm works, or simply enjoy a peaceful day in the country. We have parking and can accommodate families and groups of all ages.
The farm is open to visitors by reservation only. Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate walk-in visitors, so please contact us online or call us at 434-735-0139 to make a reservation in advance. If you are interested in learning more about any of the tours listed below, simply contact us!
NOTE: Children 2 and under are FREE!
Farm Tour – 1 hour $5/ per person (min. fee $20)
We begin with a walkabout through the farm and learn about the history and operation of our farm. Take in the landscape and learn about the principles and practices of organic farming. Following the walk, we visit the growing areas, livestock, and barns. Our high tunnel will be included in the tours starting in 2017.
Farm Tour & Lunch – 2 hours $15/ per person
Go field to fork with our farm-catered lunch under the canopy of our pecan orchard. Sandwiches and side salads are made from our farm-grown meats and veggies when in season. The family-style lunch also includes lemonade, homemade cookies, and fruit.
Farm Tour & Activity – 3 hours $25/ per person
Get your hands dirty by feeding the animals, gathering eggs, mixing potting soil, seed starting and plant propagating, planting, and harvesting. Depending on the time of year, a seasonal pick your own of our certified fruits and vegetables is available for additional charge. Feel free to bring a sack lunch and enjoy it on our picnic tables under the trees in our pecan orchard.
Our field trips are tailored specifically for your school or other group by offering a variety of hands-on learning experiences. We emphasize a “seed to mouth” or “field to fork” full circle understanding of food production as well as the importance of saving vanishing livestock breeds and crops.
