Took our two kids (both under 5) for the farm tour. The guide was so great and laid back. The kids had a blast and we learned a lot. “Operating” the farm equipment was a big hit! We would definitely visit again. Host was fantastic!

Grass fed beef, antibiotic free. Great farm store with local eggs and other organic food items. Great local asset. Animals living a natural life by a creek, no hormones & antibiotics going into the water supply. Good for everyone, good for the earth.
