Deer Hollow Farm

Welcome back to the barnyard!

The 150 year-old Farm is an educational center where the public, school classes, and community groups can observe and participate in a historic working farm. In the tradition of a working homestead, the Farm produces food on-site, such as fresh eggs and seasonal orchard produce which are for sale when available.
