Individuals and Groups with Less than 10 People
We are happy to welcome individuals and small groups (less than 10 people) to visit Hidden Villa any time we are open to the public. From late August through mid-June, we are generally open to the public between 9:00 am until dusk. For the safety and security of our Summer Campers, Hidden Villa is generally closed from mid-June through late August. Check the Hours box on the Visit Us page to see up to date information about our open and closed dates. Mondays are closed for the public.
Casual visits during open hours do not require a reservation and guests can view farm animals, wander through the education garden, and explore our wilderness trails. If you would like to visit with our farm animals, explore our buildings, or experience our food, please see our various program options. Casual guests are asked to pay our $8 parking fee. If you are a regular visitor, consider purchasing a Hidden Villa Season Pass.
Group Visits with 10 or More People
Hiking groups with more than 10 participants need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org at least two weeks in advance.
Several picnic site options are available around the farm that can be reserved for your group. Get more information and book a site by e-mailing email@example.com.
Hidden Villa charges a parking fee of $8 per vehicle, Tuesday through Sunday from 9:00 AM to dusk. Payment is cash, check or (when a gatekeeper is on duty) charge. If no gatekeeper is on duty when you arrive, please deposit cash payment in the green metal collection container by the entrance gatehouse. A Season Pass lets you visit us anytime we are open without having to pay the $8 daily parking fee.
The Season Pass is good for a full year from date of issuance. All proceeds, including revenue from parking fees, support our farm and education programs! The parking fee is waived for rentals and preregistered participants in fee based programs.
Visitor Health and Safety
Hidden Villa is a working farm. Many of our activities are seasonal, weather dependent and variable. We advise you to wear clothing appropriate for a day out on the farm. You may encounter uneven terrain, farm equipment and unfamiliar sights, sounds and smells. We encourage you to explore but ask you to respect our farmers’ work, and our animals and crops by keeping a safe distance. Please remember that many fences are electrified for our animals’ protection. Whenever possible, but always before eating, clean your hands by washing and lathering vigorously for at least 20 seconds before rinsing. Wipes and sanitizers are not adequate protection. Children under 5, the elderly, pregnant women, and individuals with heart disease or compromised immune systems should exercise caution while visiting any farm. Hidden Villa also has a no-smoking policy.
