The Barnyard Experience

The Foggy Bottoms Barnyard Experience is our answer to the much desired farm tour. We are able to provide three opportunities for engagement with us on the farm. All engagements must be arranged and confirmed in advance starting with the process of completing the form at the bottom of this page.

Barnyard Tour

A full barnyard tour includes a visit to our milking parlor, egg washing shed, maternity barn, paddocks and pasture grazing operations. We love to have conversations about our operation, our family history and Humboldt County Agriculture, but we will let you ask the questions! You will get to see our doves, sheep, dairy cows and if timing is right feed a calf! 

Time: 45 min
Cost: $10 per person or minimum $125 purchase of product
Size: 3 person minimum and up to 20

Brunch or Lunch

Barnyard tour with either a brunch or lunch. The experience starts with a release of our white doves on the historic Main Street of Ferndale! We will attempt to beat them back to their home on the farm over the three mile caravan guided driving tour with narration on history of the settlement of the Eel River Valley for approximately 10 minutes. Upon arrival you will assist in the preparations of a hearty farm meal featuring our pasture raised protein products and local produce for 45 minutes. We finish off with a full tour of the dairy and end the experience with the opportunity to fill up your coolers with purchases of our products.
