A Family Ranch
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 December 9th and 10th, 2017 for the Holiday Hoedown and in the Spring on March 31, 2018 for the Spring Fling and Egg Hunt. Each summer, we offer an incredible Summer Farm Camp.
Let us take care of your horses or help you learn all about what it takes to have a horse of your own. Enjoy the ranch for your most memorable events, birthday parties, weddings, corporate events, field trips, etc. Our Animal Care, Soap Making and Cheese Making Classes are offered March-June and November-December.
Visit our Country Store, online or in person, and try out Goat's Milk soap, fresh eggs, home grown hog or Thanksgiving Turkey!
