Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I park for the tour?


There is adequate parking at the farm. Please enter through the driveway to the farmhouse (8102 N95th St. Longmont, CO 80504), continue to the back of the farmhouse and find a spot to park your vehicle. Buses can drop off passengers and turn around in the driveway behind the farmhouse.




What should I bring on the tour?


Please bring a hat, water and any snacks you need as it can get hot on summer days. The tour will take place outside. Please wear close-toed shoes that can be on uneven surfaces.




What if there is a storm?


If there is lightning or other severe weather in the area the tour will be canceled. We will try to inform the group the morning of a tour if it looks as if severe weather is likely.




Do you have a restroom?


We have one, non-ADA accessible, porta potty.
