2017 Winter Farm Tour at Edgwick Farm
Fri, April 14, 2017, 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM EDT
A unique educational experience for families to see where their food comes from. Meet our dairy goats and their babies as well as chickens and ducks and their babies. Taste the milk and cheese these animals help produce after touring the farm.
How long does the farm tour last? What can we expect?
Tours are typically about an hour long and include an educational tour guided by our herd manager and personal contact with our milking goats and an opportunity for each family to visit the baby goat pen and cuddle the babies. After visiting with the animals, there is a bathroom to wash hands. Then the cheesemakers will taste goat milk and goat cheeses in the viewing room where you can look through a big window to see cheese being made.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Please enter the driveway of the house at 348 Angola Road and proceed up the small road to the red building which is our creamery and microdairy and park in front of it.
How should we dress?
Although, there is very limited walking on the tour and most of the tour occurs inside semi-heated buildings, you should dress for cold outdoor weather in clothes you don't mind getting dirty. Consider wearing boots (no open toes shoes) and maybe bring a plastic bags to stash dirty boots at the end of the tour.
What can't I bring to the event?
Please do not bring dogs to the farm tour. They will frighten our farm animals.
What does the tour cost? Do you charge for young children?
The farm tours cost $10 per person. (This covers our out of pocket costs.) Children under 2 years old are able to attend at no charge by reserving a free under 2 ticket. However, each child four and under must be accompanied by an adult to assure there is reasonable supervision during animal contact.
Why do you limit tours to 15 attendees?
We are a working farm, milking twice a day, 7 days a week and making cheese daily as well. The tours are scheduled around this and are small so as to fit in our spaces and not over stress the animals.
We buy your milk and cheese and eggs at the farmer's markets. Can we buy some after the tour to bring home?
Yes. Milk and cheese and eggs will be available for purchase.
