Visiting Milk and Honey Farm:

Milk and Honey Farm is a community resource, an educational space, and a working farm. We grow over 3,000 lbs of produce each year, most of which is donated throughout Boulder County through Boulder Food Rescue. Our farm also has chickens, goats, a greenhouse with koi fish, and a full children’s garden. Please keep the following reminders in mind when visiting the farm:

  • Supervise your children and other people you are with at all times.

  • Please stay on the walking paths and do not walk in the vegetable beds.

  • Enjoy the animals but do not feed them unless farm staff directs you.

  • You may nibble produce that has “eat me” signs near it. Only take what you think you will eat, follow directions for harvesting listed on the signs, and leave some for others.

  • Please use caution when exploring the farm. Sometimes farm tools are left out, holes are dug for irrigation, or other emergent obstacles will be present. We use electric fences to keep farm animals in and predators out. The fences are normally on, or “hot.” Please be mindful not to touch the electric fences.
