What You’ll See
We have a lovely farm in the country where your group can come and relax. Enjoy the quiet sounds of nature. Kids can play in the grassy fields. In the summer, they love to play under the misting pergola, which keeps them cool during their visit to our farm.
Good, old-fashioned fun. After the presentation and tour, bring a picnic basket and have your lunch in the country. The farms picnic & play areas are available for use until 12 p.m. each day a Family Show is offered (Saturdays throughout our season, and each Wednesday during the month of July). The picnic and play areas are available for use after private tours during the week until 1 p.m. **The Farm will be CLOSED August-18th through August-31st to perform yearly maintenance. During this time we will NOT be open for visitors or providing butterflies for release. We will reopen Saturday September-1st for our 10 AM Family Show, and conclude our 2018 season on October-13th.**
Helpful Tips: When visiting the farm you do NOT want to spray or use any type of bug spray or repellent; butterflies are bugs, and will not come to you with bug repellent on. We highly recommend wearing closed-toe shoes when visiting the farm. The farm welcomes all customers, and considers itself handicap accessible; however all activities are outdoors and the farm’s terrain is all grass/gravel, so please consider your mobility needs prior to visiting. All activities are outdoors & weather permitting.
What You’ll Learn
We begin with our presentation which is a fun, fast-paced skit where the kids in the audience dress up, and enjoy learning about butterflies. You’ll learn the body parts of a butterfly, all about the lifecycle, the Monarch migration, differences between moths and butterflies, and what the caterpillars eat.
Best of all, you’ll see all of this up close! There are eggs, caterpillars, chrysalis…all in our flight house for you to view. Plus everyone is able to hand feed the butterflies and get an up close look!
Admission is $7 per person, children under 2 years old are free, we accept all forms of payment.
