NCOF is free and open for you to explore on your own from 8 am to dusk every day. You’re free to walk up to animal enclosures (just not to enter them) and walk the paths to see what’s growing. Please check out our map to get ready for your visit!
Our self-service market stand is also open for business whenever you come and visit. Pick up some veggies, flowers, eggs, or maple syrup at our stand, and get a first-hand view of what local food looks like.
When you visit, please remember that you are visiting a real working farm. Our farmers have farmwork to do and are always busy. Sometimes they have to drive big trucks and tractors, operate chainsaws and powertools, or have move and work with large, unpredictable, and uncooperative animals. Farming can be hard, dangerous work. It takes concentration. If a NCOF farmer ask you to move, they are not necessarily being mean; they just may need more room to do their job and they want you to be safe while they do it.
Hear what our visitors have to say:
“My kids get excited every time I tell them we are going to the organic farm. We see something different every time we go. Today we went into the pigs house (pig was in the other pen). Last visit we discovered the aqua-duct. Visit before we watered chicken and fed the rabbits. Love the place.”—Henry P. via Facebook
“Last summer by grandson visited us and had a wonderful time at the Farm. He was allowed to walk through all the different sections of the Farm, including the barn and was also encourage to “help” with the chores involved with the Farm. Since he lives outside Manhattan, he was fascinated with the different areas of farm life and especially the pigs! Thank you for all your efforts and hard work.” –Suzanne B. by mail
