Planning a Visit?

Need to contact us about a visit?

In order to make your visit as memorable as possible we ask that you review our recommendations before making your trip.

When Can I Visit?

We have informal visiting hours most Saturdays from 10am-2pm, and larger events several times a year. If you would like to come on a Saturday, please let us know you’re coming; we are working on Saturdays and need to plan for a tour guide for you. Email: info@stargazingfarm.org Please note:  there are no unsupervised visits.

Parking

There is a gate into the farm; please close it behind you so the animals stay inside the farm. Once inside, please park in the gravel areas, and do not block the driveway.  The farm office entrance is on the left side of the main house.

Families

We welcome family visits, as we believe learning about the farm animals is a great educational experience for both young and old. Parents must stay with their children at all times.

Pets

Please leave all pets at home. If you need to bring a service animal please contact us first, as we have Guardian animals on the farm.

Snacks

The animals love apples, bananas, lettuce, and other healthy treats like fig newtons.  If you’d like to bring treats for the animals, please take them into the farm office first to be sorted. We monitor what the animals eat every day.  If you wish to bring your own snack, please consume it in the designated visitor areas and do not bring any food into the barnyard.  Please do not feed the animals.

Pictures

Please feel free to take lots of photos! We love seeing the farm through your eyes, and your happy faces are our happy memories.

Directions

Please go to www.stargazingfarm.org/directions for detailed directions. We are approximately 6 miles away from Route 270, Germantown exit.
