Special Event

Opening Weekend and Girl Scout Discount Days

Saturday, May 6, 2017 - Sunday, May 7, 2017

10am - 5pm

Our 41st season opens with sheep, seeds and seeing you!

Celebrate spring with us as we begin our springtime chores!  Guests can check out the newest additions to our flock and watch as the sheep get their yearly shearing.  See how we transform the wool from the sheep to socks with hands-on experiences for all ages.  Then, help prepare the gardens for the growing season and see what's cooking in the kitchen after the long winter season.

Girls Scouts including adult scouts in uniform or wearing clothing with the Girl Scout emblem are Free.  See Ticket information for pricing for the rest of the group.
