NOTICE, December 22, 2018: Farm Closed temporarily
We’re so sorry to have to cancel our final Holiday open house this Saturday, December 22. The farm will be closed until February 1, 2019.
Animal control picked up a skunk on the property that tested positive for rabies.
None of our animals was injured in any way.
Another rabid skunk was found in another part of Boyds just two weeks prior to this. All of our animals are up to date on rabies vaccines, and are all getting booster shots. However, we take rabies very seriously and so are voluntarily putting our farm under quarantine for the next 45 days (until February 1, 2019).
We will re-open and hold a make-up Santa in February event then!
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.
We hold events several times a year. We have occasional Saturdays for informal visits and these are posted on our calendar. 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: email@example.com Please note: there are no unsupervised visits. We are closed on Sundays.
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.
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.
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.
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. We do not have picnic areas for visitors. Please do not feed the animals.
Please feel free to take lots of photos! We love seeing the farm through your eyes, and your happy faces are our happy memories.
Please go to www.stargazingfarm.org/directions for detailed directions. We are approximately 6 miles away from Route 270, Germantown exit.
