Guests are invited to learn about the farm's rich history and mission, view food preparation, and gather around a dramatic pork roast while enjoying local wine.

Blair, the Animal Husbandry Manager, will be available to answer questions about how practices like animal pasture rotation and an organic diet help build a sustainable future. A sausage making class will be offered for those who want to learn how to make their own at home!
