A: Yes, for the most part. We have wheelchair accessible porta-potties and most of the grounds are navigable via wheelchair, with assistance.

A: Yes. Parties of all sorts, dances, meetings, birthdays, weddings and other events can be held at THE FARM. Please see our group events page for details.
Q: How is THE FARM operated?
A: With a lot of love and hard work by Farmer Sharon and Farmer Glenn and a BUNCH of volunteers. Farmer Sharon is always looking for volunteers and any other kind of support – money, equipment usage, material donations, etc.
Q: Is there anything for sale there?
A: Yes. We have a small Farmers Market, with seasonal fruits and veggies. We also offer a nice variety of small-batch, local artisan products like jams, jellies, chutneys and bread, as well as our own local raw honey and farm-fresh eggs. Cold soft drinks and bottled water are also available. During the Fall, we also have a HUGE selection of pumpkins and squashes. Additionally, animal feed bags are available for a small fee.
Q: How long should I expect to spend at THE FARM?
A: Well, that’s up to you. You can take a leisurely stroll around the grounds, while meeting the animals and browsing the market. You can then have a seat in any of a number of locations around the property and rest or take in the sights. There is no set tour or time allotted. But as a rule of thumb, expect to spend around an hour here. More, if you have young ones…
