May 24th thru Columbus Day we offer several different tours of our farm. It's not summer anymore and so all tours will start again next May. We'd love to have you out to visit us. If you cannot make one of our regularly scheduled events please contact us and perhaps we can set something up that works for you. Please note that you may not want to wear flip flops as cows do tend to poop everywhere!
Come out and enjoy a walking tour of our farm. Learn the history of this important Chilmark farm and how we have brought it back to life. 10$ per person and kids are free.
Mondays @ 10am
Thursdays @ 10am
Cheese Tasting and Experience
Learn the steps of cheesemaking on our farm as your host talks you through the subtle intricacies in the art of cheesemaking. End your talk and mini farm tour with a terrific cheese board including all of our cheeses and even a few surprises! 20$ per person.
Fridays @ 1:30pm
Cheese Tasting & Milking Tour
Where does that delicious cheese come from? A cow of course! Meet our ladies through the milking window as you learn about the steps it takes from pasture to plate for your cheese to be created. Bring a cold drink and enjoy the summer air & feast on a large cheese board at the end of this mini tour and talk. Saturdays @ 5:30pm
School Field Trips
Here at The Grey Barn we enjoy sharing the farm with children and their teachers. All ages are welcome to come and we can help to focus the tour on each classroom's individual needs or course of study. In the past we have done:
Meet and pet a calf with pre-schoolers.
Walk the farm and and learn about how each person's job on the farm is important.
We often work with each school's Island Grown School co-ordinator to create a unique experience for each classroom.
Homeschoolers have had tours about how cows make milk.
