Tour Guide & Visitor Policy
Epiphany Farms is a working farm that stays in business by being productive through important daily tasks and accomplishing time sensitive projects. We would love to spend time with every visitor, but it is very difficult for us to stop our daily chores and greet guests in the middle of a normal business day on the farm. For this reason, we have an educational farm tour schedule & a visitor policy to make sure everyone's welcomed upon their arrival and has a quality time at Epiphany Farms.
EDUCATIONAL TOURS: Epiphany Farms opens its doors to the public during the growing season (June - October) to share our techniques & production systems. This year, 2015, we are hosting educational tours every Saturday at 3:00 pm, with cocktails and a cash bar starting at 2:30 pm. Please wear sturdy, closed toed shoes for your tour, and bring a hat or sun protection. Parking for the farm is located before you cross the bridge or along the road. Please walk over the bridge, and someone will be in front of the barns to greet you.
OPEN DOOR POLICY: Epiphany Farms practices an open door policy for all guests at our farm. We have a transparent operation and will do our best to accommodate tour inquiries.
Epiphany Farms is a working farm. As such, heavy duty farming equipment, live animals, electrified fences, and other such hazards inherent to farming activities exist on the property and may pose a danger to our visitors. We plan our day tightly with important projects that we need to accomplish on a daily basis which makes it difficult to stop to greet guests unless the visit is planned accordingly and given enough time to make schedule available. Therefore, we require all visitors to contact our office and arrange a visit if they are unable to make it to one of the previously scheduled Saturday tours.
Please contact our office at 309-828-2323 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
HARVEST FEAST: Once a year, Epiphany Farms presents a farm feast event with limited availability. Tickets will be on sale one month prior to the event via our online STORE. In previous years, we hosted this event with special wine & beer pairings in the middle of September. There will be an extensive farm tour given by our Chefarmer℠ and a fresh dinner prepared, utilizing the daily harvest and accompanied by live music.
VOLUNTEERS: Epiphany Farms welcomes volunteers who want to have a hands-on experience with sustainable farming.

Once you submit your volunteer application, someone from the office will contact you to schedule your volunteer orientation. For more information, please call the office at (309)828-2323.
