There is something at this working farm for everyone! March starts out with the farm making maple syrup. A maple syrup training clinic is held, which is followed by a Sunday, maple syrup pancake breakfast and maple syrup tour that is open to the public. The maple syrup season goes for about a month, and the public is welcome to stop out anytime for a taste and to watch. Once maple syrup season ends, work begins to ready the 5 acres of strawberries for picking in June and July. Work starts by uncovering the berry plants from their straw covered bed, and soon after our honey bees are put out in different locations here on the farm. Pick-Your-Own and pre-picked strawberries are ready in June and early July. July and August is fresh pre-picked Wisconsin Blueberries, and then its fresh bi-color sweet corn. August is new crop honey being harvested here, and then it's our large corn maze along with hayrides, farm animals, the activity area, and pumpkin picking for Sept. and Oct.
We are handicap accessible here at the farm, even our hayrides are! Fieldtrips, tours and outings for companies and groups are available anytime. The fact that we are an active, operating farm means visitors get to see planting, harvesting, cows calving, and all other aspects of farm life that are going on here on the farm all during the year.
