In pursuit of an agricultural educational experience for students of all ages, we provide a small venue fit for special life celebrations and everyday blessings. We are situated on an 85-acre farm, producing a variety of foods and wines, raising animals and honey, and growing herbs and flowers using techniques that protect the environment and help foster the development of healthy living.

Walker Homestead Farm & Winery serves plates at their peak, products that are perfectly ripe and prepared with simplicity in mind. We feature monthly farm dinners, classes and weekly opportunities to partake in what has been gleaned just prior. Please join us for a truly unique agricultural experience.

The ambience was lovely. I wish that more non alcoholic beverage options had been available for a better price or maybe some incentives for the designated drivers, especially because the venue is out of town. I am so glad I packed vitamin water. It is ok to charge $3 for iced tea, but offer ice in the glass, a lemon wedge, and perhaps some mint to class it up. I was grateful that water was provided. The food was delicious, healthy, and fresh. This farm is a gem :)
