Farm Visits and Tours



Some of our Artisan members are able to welcome visitors to their farms and facilities for tours, classes, and informal visits. The following locations are open for visits, but please note that it’s always best to call ahead to check availability. Some farms are small and can only accommodate a few visitors at a time, and given our changing Massachusetts weather, many farms can only open for visits during warm weather months.
