Frequently Asked Questions

When do you open to the public? We will open in early Spring, March. We plan to stay open until Christmas.

What does my admission cover? Admission covers a visit to our chrysalis room to view and learn the lifecycle of a butterfly including live pupa. From there, you can visit our butterflies in the flight house. Chrysalis are brought in weekly and you may see different species at each visit. Then, you can frolic among the 100's of butterflies visiting the gardens. You are welcome to stay as long as you like, most guests stay for about 2 hours.

How do I get tickets? Tickets may be purchased when you arrive at the farm. For more information, visit our Admission Info page by clicking here.

What if I have a large group that wants to come? Groups are considered 15+ and we like to reserve time slots on Weds and Thurs for groups. Please send an email with the number of guests and preferred date so we can check our availability.

Is the farm pet friendly? We love 4-legged friends and we have a few of our own at the farm. They are not allowed in the flight house but we do have a penned in area if your furbaby would like to hang out there for a bit.
