Just 12 miles from downtown Charlottesville, you can discover the wonders of an organic family farm. With a variety of livestock and an abundant garden, Open Gate Farm welcomes visitors to the full experience of a working farm. Our farm tours are designed to be educational, experiential, and fun!
When we say hands on, we mean it. Children will romp with the piglets, gather eggs from under a hen, hold baby chicks, learn how to milk a goat, pet the sows, talk with the turkeys, discover an organic garden, taste herbs, berries and fresh vegetables, ramble on a nature walk, and much more.

Farmer Tom gives a great tour and is wonderful with children. We had two adults, a 7 year old and 4 year old. All of us loved the tour and would recommend to others when back in the area. We held and fed the chickens, fed and pet the goats, pigs, and bunny. And, even planted a seed. My favorite part was how Farmer Tom talked about how animals need love and how we were helping provide that to them!
We planned a visit to the farm while we were in the area , we were not expecting much since we have been to other farms and been disappointed. The farm exceeded our expectations in everyway. Our children are homeschooled and this was perfect for them . They were engaged the entire time and able to be hands on with all the animals . The owner was very knowledgeable , friendly and accommodating . I highly recommend this farm to anyone in the area . We still talk about the farm to this day !
