Looking for something to do with your kids?
Try Summer Tours at Soule!
This Summer we have an awesome opportunity for you to visit Soule. Want to snuggle a rabbit? Feed a sheep it’s breakfast? Collect eggs and show your kids your chicken catching skills? You can do all that and more at Soule! In order to keep our visitors as safe as possible, we are not offering our First Farm Fun story hours or our Soule Summer Camp program. In the place of these programs we are instead offering small group visits so that you can still do many of your favorite activities on the farm. Each program has a limit that you can work within to have your extended family or friends join you. We require at least one adult per each group visit. On the farm we have a bathroom which is cleaned daily, we have an outdoor hand washing station and our staff will wear a mask the entire time they work with your group. We ask that everyone in your party (over the age of 3) brings a mask to wear for moments that they will be in close contact with our staff.
20 minute tour, 6 people max, $20 for Soule Homestead Members, $30 for non-members.
