Visiting Hawthorne Valley
Hawthorne Valley is a bustling place, and we welcome visitors year-round!
Just passing through?
If you're just passing through or coming on a whim, the Farm Store is open Monday through Saturday 7:30 to 7 and Sundays from 9 to 5. After checking out the foods made fresh on the farm, you may enjoy taking a self-guided tour around campus — poke your head in the barn, visit the pigs, stroll through the Corner Garden, visit the Creek, hike Phudd Hill. Look for the Self-Guided Tour map in the brochure stand inside the Farm Store.
