Babies and Brunch

Spring Open House

Spring on the farm means: baby goats and local food: the perfect combination!

The 2018 Season will be run a bit differently than years' past.  

Starting April 7th through May 12th, we will be open both Saturdays and Sundays (9:30-1:00) with a more elaborate brunch menu. 

No reservations are required (except for the Mother's Day brunch which will have two seatings-SEE DETAILS AND SPECIAL BUFFET BRUNCH MENU BELOW), and food & beverages are offered first-come-first-served. 

Here's how our brunch service will work:

  1. Arrive at the farm and add your name to "Pop-Up Cafe" wait list board to get a table; if tables are open, you get seated right away
  2. Shop in the farm store and sample cheese and gelato while you wait for your table OR
  3. Visit with the goats while you wait for your name to be called for a table
  4. Once seated, our servers will quickly take your order and expedite it to the kitchen
  5. Your hot meal will be served quickly and efficiently once we receive it
  6. Enjoy a house-made cocktail or a glass of wine or beer with your brunch
  7. Continue shopping or visiting with the goats
