Elm Hollow Farm Tour Information

General information: Tours are done by appointment only. In addition to meeting the cows up close, you will learn a bit about Highlands. 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]

Visitors are asked to wear proper footwear. If you have recently visited any other farms where animals are present, please disinfect that foot wear before entering our pastures. Rubber mud boots are the best choice.

The fee is $100.00/ hour for up to four people in your 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.

All adults will need to sign our liability waiver before entering any restricted area. If there are minors in your group, one of the adults in the group will need to accept the responsibility for that minor’s safety.

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 and herd behavior, 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.

When a date and time for your tour has been established, you will receive the link to make your non-refundable deposit along with directions to the farm. The deposit is $25, with the balance of $75 due in cash upon arrival for your tour.

If you need to reschedule, we will need 48 hours notice to avoid loss of your deposit. There will be no charge for rescheduling within the 48 hour window for dangerous weather situations, such as storms, bitter cold, extreme heat etc. Call if you have delays on arrival; sometimes we have several tours back to back. We will do our best to accommodate.

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.
