Gear and Clothing: Work and play at the farm can be messy, but immensely satisfying! Farm-friendly clothing is recommended. You may wish to bring a picnic blanket from home for story time or they will also be provided.

Weather: Story hours will be held rain or shine. If the weather is favorable, we will gather in the grass near the picnic shelter, otherwise, in the case of rain or wet grass, we will hold story hour under the picnic shelter.

Parking: Please park in the large lot adjacent to Meadowbrook Road by using the vehicle entrance at the top of the hill (farthest entrance from 12-Mile Rd.). Proceed to walk toward the silo and down the steps towards the picnic shelter area. A staff member will be available to direct and assist as necessary.

Cost: $5 (includes one child and one accompanying adult: note this program is designed for children ages 2-5 years old; all siblings 2 years older will need to be registered separately; siblings under 2 years old are free)

Registration is required and space is limited, so be sure to register early! Please only register for the times you can commit to attending so we may provide as many as possible with an opportunity to join in on the fun!

Refunds are not available. All fees support MSU Tollgate Farm education programs. Thank you!

COVID-19 UPDATE: We are planning for an in-person program in October. All participants, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear a mask while indoors. Please do not attend any programs, meetings, or events if you feel ill.
