Experience the farm firsthand with a fun and educational wagon tour led by a member of the Seven Sons Farm. This wagon tour goes way beyond the typical petting farm gig. You will see a real working pasture-based farm in action. Experience how our herds of cattle rotate through hundreds of acres of pasture followed by thousands of laying hens in their mobile hoop coops. We'll also stop for a visit with the pastured pigs and perhaps you'll even get a peek at the bison herd (if they're not hiding in the woods) Come prepared to learn and ask questions. Video and snapshot cameras are welcome on our farm!
Nominal fee of $10 per person age 13 and up (12 and under are free.)
See first hand how we operate our pasture-based livestock and direct marketing enterprise. Due to numerous requests we now provide tours and consulting for those who are new to pasture-based food production and direct marketing. Schedule a time to visit our farm for an afternoon and allow us to explain the inner workings of our operation and reveal what we’ve learned from the last 16 years of trial, error, and success. Take pictures, videos and ask any questions you want.

"Our experiences with Seven Sons have been a critical element to starting our farm. From touring Seven Sons Farms we got to see first-hand how they manage their land, grass, and animals. We are using what we learned there to shape our farm." Jeremy & Holly Sorenson (Weeds Farm - Larwill, IN)
"I cannot say enough about how much help the family at Seven Sons has given to me. When I decided to move to a pasture based operation everything I knew came from reading books and watching YouTube. The ability to actually see these practices in action and have the Hitzfields as a sounding board for questions and advice has been invaluable to Tyner Pond Farm and our success." Chris Baggott (Tyner Pond Farm - Greenfield, IN
"People of character. Passion for what they do. The folks from Seven Sons have proven to be invaluable since our journey started four years ago. They understand sustainable farming, and all aspects: environmental, social, and financial. Blaine's experience with e-commerce is of tremendous value to anyone who plans to rely heavily on the internet for their marketing. If you are thinking about entering or are still new to sustainable farming and direct marketing, learning from their success is the surest way to get you started off on endearingly successful journey." Mark Grieshop (Pasture’s Delights Dairy - Decatur, IN)
"Been wanting to send an email to thank you for putting on the conference. I can't tell you how inspiring it was and your willingness to share your knowledge and help other farmers is truly a blessing. It keeps us start up guys going!" Jeff Smith (The Grass Feather - Richland, MI)
