Details

Scheduling Generally we schedule group activities on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month, but we entertain all offers. Weekday options are available.

Rain policy During our rainy season (November-March), we can get uncomfortably muddy. Therefore we schedule group activities with preferred date and a backup dates in case your preferred date gets rained out. If it's been raining heavily at the farm the day before you're scheduled, or predicted for any portion of the scheduled date, the trip will be cancelled. If it's rained a lot over several days prior to a scheduled activity, it could be cancelled as well. We will be in close contact with you if these conditions are present.

Trash The farm does not have trash service. Please plan on packing out your trash and recyclables, or choose to pay $150 service fee.

Appropriate attire For full participation, everyone should wear long pants, long sleeves and close-toed shoes. It's very dusty and there might be stinging nettles, rocks or tools, ants, bees or rough patches. Dressing in layers is recommended as the farm can have inclement weather (very hot and sunny or very windy, cold, and muddy).

Terrain We are a farm. Pathways can be uneven, rough, muddy or dusty, with the occasional gopher hole here and there. This can be challenging to those who have limited motor skills, as well as our youngest and oldest community members. We urge the utmost awareness and care when walking around the farm.

Bring Sunscreen, drinking water, snacks. We have beehives, so it is important for anyone with allergies (bees, plants, etc.) to bring any medication they might need to the farm.


Farm Rules

We welcome everyone, but please leave your pets at home.
Single-use water bottles are banned; we have drinking water for your refillable bottle.
Please Bring Reusables/Refillables (as necessary): plates, bowls, utensils, bags and water bottles.
Zero Waste: Please plan to pack out what you bring in.
Be kind, be conscious, be here. Breathe.

We thank you for your support.
