Elm Hollow Farm Tour Information
General information: Tours are done by appointment only. I do charge for tours, because it does take time away from our regular work. Contact Nancy by email to arrange a date and time for your visit: [email protected]
The fee is $100.00/ hour for up to four people in the tour group. No children under 12 in the pastures. They may sit inside your vehicle in the pasture (we do have a passable road), but no matter how gentle the cows are, they are big, they are livestock and we put safety first. Under 18 must be accompanied by an adult who is responsible for their safety.
A deposit of $25 to reserve your tour time can be made through our online store at this link after you have arranged a time through email : /product/tour-deposit/. You will need to enter your name, and tour date and time. Payment balance of $75 is in cash when you arrive. If you need to reschedule, we will need 48 hours notice to avoid loss of the deposit.
Types of Tours
At the time you make an appointment, please tell me what type of tour you are looking for:
1) Just curious about Highlands and want to pet cows, learn a little about their history, meet the girls on the website in person, see the babies in the pasture etc.
2) Just want a few Highlands because they are so wonderful and need to know more about their needs and the facilities needed to safely handle them. Learn what to look for in a good cow.
3) Experienced with other beef breeds and want to learn about how Highlands are different and can improve the quality of beef when crossed with other traditional breeds or considering beginning a pure Highland beef operation.
Elm Hollow mugs and soup mugs are a favorite of our tour guests.
We also have a variety of other Highland offerings… including T-shirts, silly mugs and tumblers, and a variety of baby wear.
