FARM STORE HOURS
Take a break from the hurried craziness of life and come on up to the farm - visit the goats, see the chickens. Can you shop too? Of course! Without the stress. Goats and chickens roaming about have a tendency to add proper perspective, don't they? Even if you aren't having a soap crisis, come anyway! Click on the address below for directions... East on Highway 168 from Fresno/Clovis on the way to Shaver Lake! And... if you can't make it during regular store hours, place your order online and choose "Local Pick Up" at checkout for the shipping option. We will let you know when your order is ready for a Farm Table Pick Up.
