From April to October, the farm runs a public farm tour each month. On September 16th, we’ll offer a moonlight stroll of our meadows and cow paths.
Each tour is a chance for us to stroll the farm and really talk with people interested in what we do: cheesemaking, sustainable farm life, homestead animal husbandry, and the benefits of unplugging from the world for a time.

We always talk about the farm (and answer questions) but our themes change… in April, for Raw Milk Cheese Appreciation Day, folks toured with the cheesemaker and learned about farmstead cheesemaking. In June, when calving started, we chose a walk with our dairy farmer to “Meet the Milkers”. Over the summer we touched on native plants and pollinators, local lore and history, and how European-style agriculture impacted the native woods and fields. It is all a riff on the same idea, how farming sustainably is a long-term kindness to our lands.
This month we will do a little star-gazing, watch for bats, and listen for owls and other night creatures. Enjoy the farm as few ever see it, on a moonlit Indian summer evening.
We are encouraging folks to bring a blanket or mat, wear clothes for walk in in tall grass and good walking shoes. Join us at 9pm, Friday, Sept 16th.
