Deer Hollow Farm - Spring Farm Tour

Visit Deer Hollow Farm’s new farm babies. Meet the new lambs and goat kids, as well as the cow, pigs, chickens, rabbits, ducks, goose, sheep and goats. Spend some quality time on one of the last remaining homestead farms in the Bay Area.

  • Walk through century-old farm buildings, a large organic garden and orchard, and learn what daily life was like just 160 years ago, when most Americans lived on homestead farms like Deer Hollow Farm.
  • Enjoy the fun, interactive activities and hands-on-learning in the Farm’s Nature Center.
  • Plant a bean to take home and enjoy refreshments in the Hay Barn.

Docents will be stationed in the animal pens, explaining animal care and what life was like on a homestead farm.

Note that groups of 20 or more are not permitted.
