Come connect with us, the animals, and the land!

Parker Pastures is a working ranch that receives no taxpayer money via government grants or subsidies. We stay in business by using our time productively doing important daily tasks. As much as we would love to spend time with everyone who comes by, we simply can’t. Here is our ranch tour and visit policy:

  • SELF-GUIDED TOUR:  There is an amazing public trail that loops around Parker Pastures! Anyone may enjoy the trail and see a most anything anywhere.  We have a completely transparent ranch operation and truly welcome the integrity that this openness engenders.  If you do this on a Monday – Saturday (we are closed Sundays) and want to also purchase products, please check our store hours. For our policy about working with us for a day, please see our Tag Along page.

  • GRASS STAINS TOURS: Parker Pastures offers two-hour educational walking tours of the farm. We welcome anyone interested in learning more about Parker Pastures and Regenerative Agriculture including school groups (elementary through post-graduate), families, homeschool groups, church groups, girl/boy scouts, corporate groups, senior groups, etc. Although the farm is most active in the spring, summer and fall, we will happily schedule a tour any time of year.  Often interns and employees lead these tours and offers an up-close view of each ranch enterprise and how they work together as a whole.  Please send us an email (info@parkerpastures.com) for more information or to schedule. The cost is a $200 flat rate and prepayment is required to secure the booking.  We cannot offer refunds but will happily reschedule due to inclement weather or other unforeseeable event.

  • RANCH TOURS: Offered one time per month, these themed genuine hay wagon tours, led by the Parker Family, are limited to the first 100 people to reserve spots. Nominal fee for adults, free for children 12 and younger (children must be accompanied by an adult). For both young and old this meandering driving tour stops at all the different pastured animals, where the Parkers sound forth on everything from earthworms to earth muffins. More fun than a theme park roller coaster ride, this tour has something for everyone, from farmers to corporate executives. Even McDonald’s junkies are welcome. You’ll never be the same. The diverse people who attend these is profound, and generates unexpected conversations. Epiphanies are normal.

Be sure to arrive 20 minutes prior to start of tour, we will not backtrack for late comers. The tour is only 2 hours; we will not run longer if you are late.
