We host at least one tour for the general public each spring, typically the last Sunday in April or first Sunday in May.
Tours provide an in-depth look at the way our animals are raised, and cover both the main farm near Elkhorn Slough and our Corralitos pasture. Our tours involve a lot of walking and are information-packed. Your shoes will definitely get dirty.
There are opportunities to interact with the animals, but parents with young kids sometimes need to duck out early or take a break.
Group or Private Tours
Custom tours are available for individuals and groups. We have hosted groups of up to 40 people in the past and will work with you to design an experience that fits your schedule and interests.
Some groups have opted for half-day experiences encompassing the entire operation; others for a shorter 1-hour session with just the laying hens. A "meet your meat" module can be added to some tours, but please note we do not offer butchering classes at this time.
"Farm to Table" meal options are also available with some tours. Please contact us for rates or to discuss options for tour content.
We unfortunately can't accommodate drop-in visitors or requests to stop by for single-item purchases at this time. An "open gate" policy is our long-term goal.

There are many legitimate reasons why honest farmers might not be able to offer full public access to their farm. Here are 4:
1) They don't have enough staff to attend to visitors and still get all their work done
2) Their farm isn't yet set up to safely host unattended visitors (think "electric fences" and "dogs", people!)
3) They have a newborn baby
4) The farmers want to eat dinner
