We do fun farm tours at MacFarlane Pheasants, Inc. because many people who hear about our pheasant farm are interested in seeing how wild birds are raised. We enjoy helping our guests learn about our pheasants and other game birds that live and grow on our farm. In days past, we allowed our guests to walk about, but increased biosecurity precautions have eliminated that part of a farm visit.
We now give vehicle tours around the farm. The tours are free for groups of five or less people. We encourage at least 24 hour notice, but the more notice we get, the more likely we can accommodate our guests.
Student educational tours are always free. The adult in charge should call our office to schedule the tour. You are never too young to consider working with game birds as a career. We can also remind students that even farmers need higher education to learn about animal science and the technology, math, and reading skills needed to raise animals successfully.
We also provide Coach bus tours with a $75 fee, which includes an experienced tour guide and smoked pheasant samples, provided in our retail store. We have many interesting delicacies besides pheasant meat available for purchase. You won’t be disappointed!
The best time for a tour is late June through the fall. It is the perfect time to see mature pheasants in the outside pens. But of course we look forward to hearing from you throughout the year!
Anyone interested in a farm tour should contact Sarah Baker. You can call the main office at 608-757-7881 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. She can answer questions and arrange your tour details.
