Avondale Hills Farm tour lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes. We start off in the Hydroponic Lettuce Farm. It is a modern growing marvel and the first in Pennsylvania. We produce what chefs and customers say is the “Best lettuce they have ever tasted.” Hands on Harvesting or Planting on each tour.
We then walk down into the pastures where you will be greeted by very friendly and loving goats and kid goats. We have 2 extremely lovable livestock guardian dogs who will wag their tails with excitement that you have come to visit their herd. You will be able to hold, feed and pet the goats.
We will make our way over to see our Black Angus cows and their newborn calves. We will give you some insight and fun facts about them and you will be able to see them graze and curiously watch you as you watch them.
We will then go to the 3 acre free range chicken area. We have several breeds of egg laying hens and some little chickies too. You will learn about the fascinating world of chickens and we are sure you’ll be surprised. You will be able to feed the chickens, hold and pet them and their little chicks too. Ultimately you will be able to gather some eggs to take back to the farmhouse.
We have had overwhelmingly great feedback from our visitors. We want this to be an experience you will always remember.
We charge $12 per person. We apply a credit of $5 per person towards Farm Fresh Eggs and Leafy Greens (Depending on what is growing – Lettuce, Kale, Chard etc). Our prices are farm direct! That means you get more lettuce for your green than you would in the grocery store.
