Hidden Canyon Ranch + Farms Farm Tours Starting this Spring
We are so excited to announce the launch of our Ranch & Farm Tours Starting in April!
At long last, our farm tour dates are here! So we thought you might like a little taste of what a tour includes.
First of all – The Animals
Yes, you get to meet Luigi, our baby mini donkey with ears like a bunny. He’s as soft and cuddly as he looks and you get to give him a hug or even brush him if you like (He likes!). And don’t forget Joshua, he’s older best friend too.
We also have up-close experiences with our yearling Jersey cow, Trixie, our friendly goats, tortoise & bunny. Often the horses & llama come down to the fence line looking for a handful of grass.
Busy on the Ranch is a large flock of chickens and sheep, each with a faithful guard dog in their midst. These are our working animals and we will introduce you to their habitats and tell you all about how we raise them without added hormones or antibiotics. You can buy our nutritious, delicious eggs at our Farm Stand.
And the occasional ranch dog will likely follow along as we walk through the ranch, especially if you give them a scratch behind the ears.
we are proud of our growing compost operation. We use the “output” from all of our animals as well as grape pomace from the winery to create our special blend. An important part of our compost operation is our vermiculture (a fancy word for worm farming) bin, which we also love to share with you.
Organic Gardens – we have our backyard lettuce & herb garden going year round, using our amazing compost. And our bigger gardens always have something popping up. We offer our fresh produce for purchase in our Farm Stand, which is also part of your tour.
Our pinot noir vineyard is farmed drawing from the basic tenets of biodynamics, sustainability and regenerative agriculture. We will walk you through and explain how we do it and how we soon plan to plant our next vineyard even more directly in line with these farming principles. If you wish to taste wine from the ranch, we will send you to our nearby winery where you can taste that and more!
We offer Hidden Canyon Ranch + Farms swag, our fresh produce, our fresh, free range eggs and other goodies at our Farm Stand at the conclusion of your tour.
Each tour is 90 minutes. Wear your walking shoes. No open toed shoes if you want to go in animal enclosures with us.
