Walking Paths & Self Serve

COVID-19 – We continue to hold the safety of our customers as a top priority and are implementing steps to help protect everyone’s safety when they visit our farm.

Walking Paths – We also recognize the importance of exercise and nature and their benefits on the mind and body, which is why we created two walking paths. Like most trails, experiences may vary for each visitor. You might see wildlife (bald eagles, deer, foxes etc), in-season crops or farm equipment working in fields, but you’re guaranteed to see farm animals, a beehive, our garden plots and sensory garden. Please be sure to familiarize yourself with the rules and other information on the walking path page of our website.

Self Serve Wagon – We do offer a self-serve seasonal produce/flower wagon. Please call us if you have any questions.

Normal” Hours – During our hours of operation, someone will be available to help answer questions, process credit card transactions and open our shed that houses local honey and handcrafted soaps.

Have children? You may have heard of our Farmyard Fun Packs, an educational and fun way to stay engaged and connected to the farm during this challenging time.

All events and classes have been canceled/postponed until further notice.

Updates During Covid-19

The safety of our customers and the community is our top priority.

How have we adapted: At this time we have postponed and/or canceled all events. Our sales have been limited to eggs, Farmyard Fun Packs for children, pick your own tulips, potted plants and garden plots.

Tickets: Guests must follow social distancing protocol and stay in compliance with all regulations required by officials. If you have purchased tickets for a Farmyard event, please hold on to that ticket. It will serve as a voucher when business returns to normal.

Supporting our business: Many have asked how they can support us at this time. Along with the items listed above, we offer a sponsorship program. Please consider becoming a sponsor. The care of our animals will always remain our top priority regardless of the challenges COVID-19 poses.

We are thankful for this strong community and the members who have found ways to support local businesses. Although we wish we could be hosting events, we are not discouraged! Upgrades and changes are always happening at The Farmyard, including the new beehives that were installed this week! Here are some positive pictures for everyone to enjoy!

Fun Packs at Home

These activities and sheets have been created to help provide engaging material while children are at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Packets vary depending on age group. All packet holders will have access to a virtual farm tour/video presented by The Farmyard, three activity sheets, an at home activity, recommended recipe and links to additional resources. New packs with different agricultural topics will be released weekly.

Pack payments can be made HERE. A payment covers one family. If the family chooses to purchase a “second packet,” it will be considered an additional donation. Proceeds will go towards a specific item each week (identified during our farm video).

Time to get started!

Please fill out the following information. You will receive an email with the packet attachment.

Once payment is received, the packet will be emailed. All items will be digital until it is safe to print and distribute packets.
