Rose Farm FAQ's
Are you open to the public? Do we need an appointment to visit?

We are open to the public! Our hours differ by season, but we will always be open Friday-Sunday unless we have a private event. When our hours are open to the public, there’s no need to make an appointment to visit!

Can I bring my dog on a leash?

We think furry friends make life sweeter, and they are always welcome. Our one request is that they are on a leash. Our chickens get very excited when meeting new friends!

We outline this in photography.

What can we do at the farm?

There’s countless things to do on the farm! We encourage you to take a sabbatical from your everyday life and enjoy an afternoon in the countryside. Whether you bring a picnic, stroll through our gardens, pick a bucket of flowers, attend a workshoppe, watch the birds, or enjoy anything else the farm has to offer, we can’t wait to have you as our guest!

Do you offer private tours?
