Come ready for a day outdoors
Please come appropriately dressed for the weather and for an active day on the farm. This means closed-toed shoes, water and adequate sun protection. Lightweight pants are more suitable than shorts even on hot days. Reusable water bottles can be filled up in the Silo Lobby.

Chef in Residence Lunch Boxes
We are excited to offer a picnic-style Chef in Residence lunch box for two people 12 – 4pm Friday – Sunday. Reserve your box with your visit as we anticipate these will sell out quickly due to limited quantities.

In addition to picnic areas, there will be a tent available where you can enjoy your lunch. There are no lunch box refunds, and campus is open rain or shine.

Visitor Health and Safety
When visiting, we advise you to wear clothing appropriate for a day out on the farm. You may encounter uneven terrain, farm equipment and unfamiliar sights, sounds and smells. We encourage you to explore but ask you to respect our farmers’ work as well as our animals and crops by keeping a safe distance and staying on designated paths.

Please remember that many fences are electrified for our animals’ protection. Do not pet our animals. Whenever possible, and always before eating, clean your hands by washing and lathering vigorously for at least 20 seconds before rinsing. Wipes and sanitizers do not provide adequate protection. Children under 5, pregnant people, and individuals with heart disease or compromised immune systems should exercise caution while visiting any farm.
