Our Vice President of Barketing is Augustus McCrae Wilder (GUS). He is our official greeter & MAY ride shot gun on your hayride. All farms have dogs.  He has no idea he IS a dog and even friends who DO NOT LIKE DOGS love Gus - he is amazing. Dogs help keep us safe on the farm. Please note he will be on property sharing the love.

When you are at the farm you will:

meet, pet, hold, & brush a variety of clean, friendly farm animals:

chickens: roosters, hens, chicks and if we are lucky... a green egg!

along with ducks, bunnies, lambs, goats, donkeys, horses, ponies & potbelly pigs.

learn lots of fun facts about them & discuss their jobs on the farm

explore fun gardens like The Peanutbutter & Jelly Garden and Mr. McGregors to see what is growing for the season. Friends w/ allergies don't worry - it is just named the PBJ garden. The goats ATE all the peanuts years ago & farmer sue gave up planting them!)

create a cool art project

relax with a picnic lunch under the old magnolias with tables just for you.

hop a hayride & travel around the farm learning about the garden & compost, earthworms and more.
