About Deer Hollow Farm
The 150 year-old Farm is an educational center where the public, school classes, and community groups can observe and participate in a historic working farm. In the tradition of a working homestead, the Farm produces food on-site, such as fresh eggs and seasonal orchard produce which are for sale when available.
Visitors are welcome to take a self-guided tour and learn about the history of the Farm. The friendly farm animals, a garden and orchard are available for viewing during regular Farm hours. Note, the buildings and pens are closed to the general public. Visitors may also explore 24-miles of trails in the surrounding Rancho San Antonio Open Space Preserve.
For information about public events, contact the Friends of Deer Hollow Farm by email at email@example.com or visit http://www.fodhf.org/.
Picnic tables are available at the north end of the Farm. Be prepared to remove all garbage as there are no garbage cans at the Farm or Preserve. Permits are required for groups of 20+ people. For permits, call the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District at (650) 691-1200.
