Event description


COVID-19 Update:

We are cancelling public tours at this time. We feel we are unable to safely social distance tour attendees from each other. We will be offering private options for families and small groups to limit exposure. Please contact huxfamilyfarm@gmail.com for more details.

We are planning to have summer camp with limited numbers.

For all attendees to events we will have a few things in place for safety. We will be asking folks to wash their hands upon arrival, give everyone their distance when signing in, spreading mats out so no one is close together during yoga or goat cuddles, maintaining social distance, inviting people to wear masks if they like with a stronger encouragement towards bandannas than actual masks due to goat curiosity and chewing. We may not be wearing masks at all times, but the instructor will have a bandanna if she needs to be closer than 6 feet to anyone. Our owner is hearing impaired so if anyone needs to talk with him they will need to lower masks/bandannas for him to lip read.

We totally understand if these precautions are not strict enough for those of high risk or those who have high risk members of their household. We encourage you to make the choices that are best for you and your family. We will continue to put lots of great animal videos and pictures on social media, and have virtual visit options for those who would like to remain off farm. Email huxfamilyfarm@gmail.com with any questions or for more details on virtual events.

Come join us for a farm tour the first and third Sunday of each month from March to November from 1-2:30pm (Registration required)!

We will no longer be open to the public for drop ins. As we continue to grow we want to create meaningful relationships and opportunities with all visitors to our farm. We thought farm tours would be a great way for individuals, families, and persons of all ages to come and enjoy our friendly animals, spend some quality time outdoors, and meet farmers who care about the environment and our community.

We hope you will leave a little lighter of heart and with a huge smile on your face each time you come to visit!!!

Activities on the tour!

  • Guided tour of our farm stations, pastures, and farm areas by one of our farmers. We will share each of the aspects of our farm, how we are striving to be sustainable, and what to expect in the future.

  • Watch our ducks and geese as they forage in their field or play in their pool, and quietly get on their level to see if they will visit with you.

  • Visit with our horses, a Halflinger and Connemara.

  • Quality brushing time with our rabbits by request. You can help us collect the fiber from our angora bunnies during the cooler months so that we can use it to spin yarn.

  • Feeding time with all the animals at the end of the tour. You can bring your own veggies and fruits cut into small pieces (preferable organic or free of chemicals). Or we will have veggie buckets you can feed for $1.

  • Goat, sheep, and livestock guardian dog play area for lots of cuddles, pictures, and goofy smiles!

  • Playground area for kids (and adults, we won't judge).

  • Time at the end to purchase farm products such as:

    • goat cheese and desserts (from Elodie Farms)

    • duck and goose eggs

    • t-shirts and tote bags (can also preorder what you want)

    • goat milk soap, produce (when available)

    • plants and flowers

    • depending on weather we may also have snowcones for sale.

    • We accept cash, check, and Venmo for all products, and credit for everything but the cheeses

Who comes?

We have had all ages from infants to a sweet 99 year old lady. However we do ask that:

  • All pets stay at home.

  • Anyone who cannot navigate slight hills, uneven ground, or moderate distances bring helpers or mechanical assistance as we may not be available to help the entire time.

  • Kids be supervised and have a waiver signed by a legal guardian..

Cost of attendance:

  • $10 per person

  • Under 3 is Free.

We are located a 5-10 min. walk from Falls Lake and the Mountain-To-Sea Trail. Please feel to take a walk to the lake and explore for a bit after the tour, just be careful not to block anyone in with your car.

You will receive an email the week before your tour with direction tips, weather updates, and things to bring/wear. We recommend sending us an email directly, after you have ordered (optional: include your best texting number) in case something is entered incorrectly on Eventbrite, and to help ensure our emails don't go to your spam. We want to be sure we can get all tour info to you.

There is NO NEED to print your ticket!

Weather Policy: We may cancel or reschedule if there is a high chance of bad weather. Although the animals don't typically mind, we want you to get the most out of your experience.

Refund Policy: All tickets are refundable until a week before your tour. If an emergency comes up please contact us by email and we will do our best to pull in someone from the waitlist, or work out other arrangements with you. If we are unable to work this out, the ticket won't be able to be refunded under 7 days from the tour.
