About Guardians Farm
Looking for a relaxing afternoon getaway? On Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 3pm we open the farm to visitors. Visit our farm stand which is located in an old hay loft in our barn which was built in 1850. Shop our extensive selection of the handmade products we make right here at the farm like our goat milk soaps & lotions along with items from several other local artisans.
When was the last time you snuggled a baby goat or loved on a baby cow? Take a stroll through the barnyard and you'll have your chance. Passes to the barnyard will give you up close and personal access to our herd of Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats and their kids, our small herd of Lamancha Dairy Goats and our group of super social Holstein and Jersey calves.
Our barnyard is surrounded by our rolling pastures where our dairy cows and our Mule Annie graze. Be sure to bring your camera to capture your memories or maybe a new profile photo lol.
Our mini pigs Jessa and Tess can be seen either lounging around the barnyard or grazing in their field. Blue Runner ducks forage around their pen and swim in their pool.
Bring the kids to learn something new about farming and our farm animals. Farm staff will be on hand to answer any questions and we have educational posters displayed throughout the barnyard. We are currently working on plans to offer various interactive programs to share with you in the future.
