We'll start with a visit with our dairy cow, Harper. We'll feed her her favorite treats, like our farm grown apples and tomatoes, and we'll brush and pet her. After our visit with Harper, we'll spend some time with the hens, roosters and ducks. We'll feed them organic hen scratch and farm greens, if available. We'll watch them happily scratch around and quack and coo. While the birds are busy, we'll step into their coops to collect eggs, and we'll compare the various types, shapes, colors and sizes. After our visit with the birds, we'll meet and greet our goats and sheep. We'll feed them their favorite treat of sweet cob, and we'll pet and brush them. If it's lamb season, we'll visit with and hold the baby lambs. We'll then head to the garden and orchard for a brief stroll to see what may be ripe for picking. We'll observe the myriad life thriving in the garden, including the birds, bees, dragonflies, ladybugs, and more. After our garden walk, you'll have the opportunity to suit up to meet our honeybees. We'll observe them through a peek-a-boo window in their hive, we'll pull a frame to observe the comb, and depending on the bees' activity, we may inspect the deep hive for the queen. We'll finish our experience in the barn with a calm and relaxing visit with our bunnies. We'll hold, brush and cuddle with these sweet and soft fur balls.

Since I was a little girl, I dreamed of farming but lost my way in corporate America until about 10 years ago, when, after watching the documentary, Food, Inc., I remembered my path. At that time, I vowed not to eat factory-farmed food again, and to embark on a path that ensured as best I could that the food my family and I were eating was nutritious, healthy, and responsibly and humanely raised. I began with chickens and gardening, and eventually, The Nest Box was born, a humane, transparent and bio-diverse farm where guests can reconnect with our animals and earth. I raise chickens, ducks, bunnies, goats, sheep, cows, bees, and a garden, and I raise them all with love and respect, making every effort to observe, understand and mimic nature herself.
We'll treat you to farm goods grown here on the farm, such as garden salsa, boiled or deviled eggs, peaches, apples, or…
We will spend our entire experience at The Nest Box, a 5.25 acre farm, walking between the animal and garden areas, and ending in the barn.
