  • Mixing up your family's weekly menu?
  • Weekend outings with the family?
  • Getting away from the family for some alone time?
  • Spending time on a working farm?
  • Shopping at local businesses?

 

If you answered "YES!" to any of these questions, you need to come to our Farmstand.

What is the Farmstand?

It's like a Farmers' Market, except it is held at our Farm. The Petting Farm is always open during FarmStand hours so you can wander through the barns and pastures to pet any of the lovable animals. The goats especially like attention! If you are lucky, you may be able to feed a baby goat in the spring!

We also offer weekly activities for the kids. Sometimes we have a craft or learning activity. Other times we have a game or obstacle course. We will always have coloring sheets so you can shop while they are kept busy.

Feel free to bring the whole family to explore the Farm and shop the store. Or come by yourself for a relaxing break and some "Me Time."

WhAt is available at the farmstand?

We harvest a little bit of everything we have available at that time of the season. The tables are usually full of a mix of fresh produce, eggs, canned goods, ARNKA clothing, Goat Milk Soap, and Goat Milk Lotion. The glass front fridge is stocked with a wide variety of ARNKA cheese, Goat Milk Caramels, and Goat Milk Fudge.

What are the Farmstand hours?

The FarmStand is open during early April through late November. The hours of operation are 9AM-12PM.

It is held inside our CSA Barn, the building to the north east of the circle driveway. This allows you to shop and do the kids' activities where it is dry, even if the weather outside isn't as nice!

Do I have to rsvp to shop the farmstand?

Nope! You can just show up!

You can place an order ahead of time if you are in a rush and we can will have everything packaged for you.

Or you can stop by any time during open hours to shop the available items. We can even harvest the exact radishes, beets, turnips, etc that you like the best. You can't get any fresher than that!

What are some of the weekly activities?

As I mentioned, we like everyone in the family to have fun at the farm. I mean, not all kids enjoy shopping for fresh produce. So we plan activities to keep them happy while you shop the store. But the activities aren't JUST for kids; the adults can do them too!

Below are some photos of past activities. We would love to hear your ideas for future activities!
