Gilchrist Farm-A Family Ranch All Year Long
Slow down and enjoy the ranch! Live your ranch dreams while we do the work. Come out and learn how to milk the goats, gather the eggs, or take a horseback riding lesson. Gilchrist Farm is open to the public year around on Saturdays from 9AM - 2PM and daily from 9AM-6PM during the whole month of October for the Harvest Festival. Join us to celebrate the season during our annual Holiday Hoedown December 8th and 9th, 2018. Join us in the Spring for the Spring Fling and Egg Hunt this year on April 20th. Each summer, we offer an incredible Summer Farm Camp with options for our youngest friends during Mini Camp, a full 6 weeks of school-age fun and even a pre-camp kick off just ahead of the summer madness!
