What does a farm visit entail?
We allow up to 30 guests on the farm at a time. If you're looking for a fully-private visit, we offer two-hour sessions starting at $300 for up to 20 guests (adults and children over 2 included). More information is available here. 

Farm visits start with a safety orientation and include a bucket of feed for the animals. You'll get to explore our beautiful 17 acre property and spend time in our petting zoo. If you'd like to fish our pond, be sure to bring your rod, bait and tackle! Our floating dock is the perfect spot to cast off and spend some quality time. 


What happens after we arrive?
You'll check in with 1870 Farm staff at the farm stand in the parking lot. They'll give you the rundown of farm safety, as well as a feed bucket for the animals. 


Are masks required? 

Updated March 7, 2022
As of March 7, 2022, masks are optional outdoors. 


Can I bring my pet?

We are big animal lovers here, but for the safety of all of our guests and our animals, we cannot allow personal pets on the farm.

 

Can I arrive early or stay late? 
Parking space on the farm is limited - please plan to arrive on the farm no more than 5-10 minutes ahead of your scheduled visit. For the same reason, we ask that you depart promptly when your scheduled visit time is over.


What should I wear when I visit the farm?
We encourage you to dress in layers and take the day’s forecast into consideration. Prepare for the possibility of mud and a good amount of walking - the farm is as big as it is beautiful.

What's your weather policy?

Farm visits run rain or shine. In the event of severe weather, we are happy to rebook you for another date. 

 

What animals do you have?

1870 Farm is home to a few different breeds of goats, sheep, alpacas, chickens and pigs. We also have ducks, rabbits, donkeys, a horse, llama, and miniature Highland cow. Our most famous resident is our farm cat, Meowstache. 
 

Is photography allowed? 
Yes! Our animals are anything but camera shy. Some of them tend to think they're celebrities and we honestly can't argue that point. 


Is it okay to bring food? We'd love to picnic on the farm! 
Absolutely! You are welcome to enjoy a picnic during your session on the farm. We have trash cans available to keep things tidy, and there are plenty of picnic tables available throughout the farm. Please note: for safety, we do not allow glass containers on the property. 

 

What's the bathroom situation?
We have a bathroom trailer conveniently located in the parking lot for easy access.
