Farm Tours

Farm tours will be every 1/2 hour throughout the festival. You'll learn about Better Farm's mulch-gardening, no-till organic approach to growing nutritious, delicious food. Tour our tiny home, cabins, greenhouses, on-site apple orchard, pond, and sauna, and meet our animals! You'll get to toss treats to piggies Matilda and Winnie, say hello to horses Riddler and Storm, commune with the alpacas Zappa, Frankie Blue Eyes, Inez, Delilah, Augusta and Vega, see our Mighty Ducks, and enjoy a stroll with our 30-plus chickens.

Farm-To-Table Dining

Enjoy meals and snacks directly from our garden and local farms nearby, cooked up for you in our pavilion directly on festival grounds. From locally sourced shish kabobs to salads grown 50 feet from where you'll be sitting, this is organic dining at its finest. And we utilize a zero-waste approach to catering: that means composting food scraps and paper plates, reusable cups, actual silverware, and homemade cooking with minimal packaging.


Campsites are available for $10/person/night. Overnight RV parking is also available, for $15/vehicle. There are porta-potties and handwash stations available throughout the day and overnight. There is a bonfire pit available on festival grounds; please no individual fires at campsites.
