We normally give tours to the public at 1 PM on fair weather Saturdays. We will be out of town this coming Saturday, July 29, but one of our interns will be giving the tour for us. We do not charge for the tours, but do appreciate donations from those who can afford to pay. Our tours are designed for adults interested in learning about our food system and it's impact on health and environment. For groups of 6 or more or if you would like a special tour at another time please contact us to make a request and understand that we charge $75/ hour for private tours. Please also understand that we can not let visitors into the pastures with the animals. Long term interns can develop relationships that will allow them closer contact, however it is not safe for visitors or good for the animals.
For those of you looking to learn about how to build a regenerative, self sustaining greenhouse, we would love to help you. Part of our mission is to educate the public and to help make this world a better place to live, but please understand that we have spent a great deal of time and money developing systems to make this greenhouse and everything else on the farm work in innovative, regenerative ways, and please help us to continue this work by offering us financial support (donations) in return for the knowledge we send home with you. You can learn about our greenhouse on one of our regular tours or schedule a private greenhouse tour to get more specific greenhouse knowledge. We charge $75/ hour for private tours (a small fraction of the value of the knowledge you will leave with if you take advantage of the situation).
For longer visits we have an Intern program. We take Interns living and eating on the farm with us for periods of 6 or more months for a full immersion in our style of farming. A strong body, an inquisitive mind, an enthusiasm for local meats, fruits and vegetables and a desire to get your hands dirty are required, along with a good match with our mission, values and lifestyle.
We are currently accepting applications for internships starting in the Spring of 2018. Please understand that due to the limited number of positions available on the farm and the nature of our work and products we do not accept vegetarians. (It's hard for us to share meals with them as we use our lard as our primary cooking fat as we both have a plethora of it and believe it to be far superior both nutritionally and flavor wise to any vegetable fat we have ever tried.)
Thanks for your interest in our farm!
