Visiting

At Cornell Farm, we acknowledge and honor the fundamental value and dignity of all individuals. We actively endeavor to create an environment that is inclusive and embracing of all. It’s our goal to continue to build an ever-expanding community of diverse friends and neighbors that call our Nursery and Cafe home.

Pet Policy

Your whole family is welcome to visit Cornell Farm, including your pets! We simply ask that you please keep the following guidelines in mind:

  • All pets must be kept on a leash or in a carrier while on the premises.
  • Pets must be supervised at all times.
  • Please do not allow dogs to bark repeatedly, especially on the front porch of the Cafe or near the chickens.
  • Clean up after your pet. We have a pet accident response kit available at Checkout. Please let an employee know if you need it.
  • Please note that pets are not allowed in the Farmhouse due to food service laws. This includes therapy and companion animals. Well-behaved pets may accompany you in the Garden Pavilion or on the porch.

Working service animals are welcome to accompany guests wherever they are needed.

Bathrooms

We have three gender-neutral bathrooms available for guests of Cornell Farm. One is located inside the Cafe, and the remaining two are award-winning ADA accessible bathrooms that are located behind the Checkout Greenhouse in the red building. Both of our ADA accessible bathrooms include baby changing stations.

We are fully accessible for guests who use a wheelchair and can also cater to those with other accessibility requirements. However, please be aware that the Nursery is located on a hill with a variety of different changes in grade.

Our name is a nod to the agricultural past of our property and our family's farming operations here. And although we don’t have some things people might think of when they hear the word "farm," we do grow over 800 varieties of plants in our Production Greenhouses, which take up much of our five acre grounds. Plus, we have everything you need to create beautiful, edible, and eco-friendly outdoor spaces, from small balconies to large gardens.

We also offer some classic farm activities... Don’t miss our chickens that live in a deluxe coop just behind the yellow Farmhouse Cafe! You can purchase chicken treats at the Nursery registers to feed our little flock.

In the fall, we also offer a Pumpkin Patch complete with staff-made scarecrows. And in the lead-up to the holidays, We also carry beautiful Christmas trees and seasonal decorations.

This unusual conifer is a Monkey Puzzle Tree (Araucaria araucana). Native to the Andes mountains of South America, this "living fossil" is the national tree of Chile. It can grow 50' to 80' tall and 20' to 30' wide.

Our tree was brought as a seedling by South American ship captains to the 1905 Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition, and you can learn more about its history in our blog post on the subject.

You can have your very own Monkey Puzzle Tree, too! We sell them in a variety of sizes at various points throughout the year. They are hardy to USDA Zone 7 and like to be planted in full sun.
