Speaking Engagements and Tours

heirloom tomato program

Foster Hill Farm is now offering speaking programs either at the farm or at your location.  We have a 1 hour program entitled, 'Heirloom and Specialty Tomatoes  - Growing in Large and Small Spaces'.   This program covers the basics of growing tomatoes and demystifies the tomato lingo like open pollinated, hybrid, determinate and indeterminate.  Favorite varieties are presented as well as environmentally friendly approaches to avoiding and controlling diseases and plant issues.  If presented at our farm a tour of the greenhouses will be included with a walk through our specimen plants. 

Private Group Tours...Great for Garden Clubs and Scouting Groups. We host private farm tours that can include any combination of our agricultural products including the donkeys, greenhouses, heirloom tomatoes, hot and sweet peppers and herbs.   The tour can be tailored to the groups' interests and can include a talk as well as the tour.  Groups of up to 20 people of any age can be accommodated.  We ask that children be accompanied by an adult.  Our farm has a dirt driveway but has been easy to negotiate with wheelchairs and walkers by visitors.  Tours are by appointment and are free.   

Miniature Donkey Tours and Programs.  We host 'donkey talks' and demonstrations at our farm for groups of up to 20 people of any age.  From grammar school children on a class trip to a group from a senior center to a group of special needs adults or children, most enjoy learning about and meeting the donkeys.  They have an endearing, gentle and curious way about them that integrates them well with any crowd.  We have a dirt driveway but have had many folks in wheel chairs visit with no problem.  Visits are by appointment.
