Keys to the Farm
Please note: While summer camp programs are in session (6/21-8/13), weekday availability for visits is limited.
Book a 90 minute semi-private visit to the farm!
Keys to the Farm sessions are self-guided explorations. Follow your interests and enjoy the farm at your own pace.
Each $85 session includes:
feed for your new animal friends
access to the petting zoo pen
fishing access (bait and tackle included)
What does a semi-private visit entail?
For the safety of our guests, we only allow three groups on the farm at a time. Each group is limited to 6 guests (adults and children over 2 included). If you'd like to bring more than 6 guests, we can book additional group slots during the same time frame.
If you're looking for a fully-private visit, we offer 90 minute sessions starting at $250 for up to 20 guests (adults and children over 2 included). More information available here.
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 walkie-talkie and feed buckets for the animals.
Are masks required?
Masks are required whenever your group is in close proximity to 1870 Farm staff or other guests outside of your group. There is plenty to explore on the farm - social distancing is easy to do out here! You are welcome to unmask when you are not around others outside of your group.
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?
Please plan to arrive on the farm no more than 5-10 minutes ahead of your scheduled visit - this helps us keep track of all of our farm families and ensure that the site is operating at a safe capacity. 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.
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. If you need a changing table, just let our staff know and we'll be able to help you out.
