Buckley Homestead Farm Tours! A fun, educational, hands-on look around the farm!

This tour does involve about a mile of walking on natural surfaces, and is open to all ages! To keep people safe and allow ourselves room to spread out there is a limit of 20 people per tour and masks will be required when entering buildings.
The tour is $5 per person with daytime and evening tours. When registering you will be required to create an account and then select a $5 spot for each person in your family or group.
