Farm Tour Days

As a "working farm", Green Dirt Farm isn't open to the public. Everyone on the farm is either tending the sheep, milking the sheep or making delicious sheep's milk cheeses and yogurt. However, we love having guests out to the farm. If you haven't already been able to attend one of our Cheese Appreciation Events or Farm Table Dinners, here is your chance to get to come visit the farm. Guests will be able take a tour and learn about the process of Dirt-Grass-Sheep-Milk-Cheese-Community. Afterwards, they'll have an opportunity to sample and purchase our cheeses and yogurts along with a la carte selections of locally produced bread, jams and beverage pairings.
