  • Meet at the cydery building where the tour will begin.
  • The experience could include sunny skies, rainfall, and walking across hilly terrain. Being mindful of possible sudden changes in weather. It is wise to come prepared wearing long pants, close-toes hiking shoes, rain gear, and sun protection. Be sure to carry along your own water and snacks.
  • A home-cooked meal follows the tour, which would include seasonal vegetables and nut-finished pork from the farm. Please email the farm in advance to reserve a spot for this extra treat!
  • Short overnight stays are also possible for those traveling long distances or who wish to stay a bit longer. Please be prepared to sleep outdoors and contribute to collective food & work if needed.


If you would prefer to visit the farm during a time or day not listed here, we are still excited to welcome you.  Please contact us to schedule a different opportunity.
