Please read before booking

We will be closed for farm tours from June 10, 2023- Aug. 7, 2023 to take care of any necessary repairs and maintenance at the farm, as well as give our family a chance to relax for a bit during the summer.


Our farm tours are relatively simple:

  • We have fenced pathways creating a horseshoe shape through 7 different paddocks or fields, which give our guests the opportunity to see, and interact with the Scottish Highland cattle, and Valais Sheep no matter what field they are occupying.

  • This design also allows us to easily rotate our Highlands for optimized grazing, and on occasion you may even get to join in on the fun of moving them from one field to another. 

  • Tours typically last approx. 45 minutes.

  • This is our personal farm, please be respectful in all areas. 

  •  We do not have public restrooms. 

  • Please park by the black gazebo when you arrive.

  • Early arrivals are fine, but we may be finishing another tour or project. We will meet you at the gazebo as soon as we are available. You are welcome to hang out in the gazebo until we connect. 

  • The tour involves about a ¼ mile walk through hilly terrain and grass pathways. The fencing is electric, so do not touch the wires. 

  • On this tour, we will make every effort to let you feed treats to the cows, have hands on interaction with the calves and sheep, and take lots of selfie's and videos.  

  • We generally do not go inside any of the paddocks with our adult highlands.  This is for the safety of both you and our Highlands.  

  • We cannot control the mood of the animals, so no guarantees on the level of interaction they will allow.

  • Photos and videos are for personal use only. No commercial use.  

  • This is a farm. You’ll likely encounter loud animals, the freshest urine or poop imaginable, slimy slobber, and visual lessons on procreation. Please dress accordingly.

  • Children aged 18 and under must be under the supervision of an adult. 

  • Also, we have no public restrooms

  • Plan to leave here a little dirty, with some slobber on your pants, and your heart filled with lots of love!





  • 8 people max in a group.  $15/person after your initial 8.

  • Tours typically lasts approx. 40 minutes. 

  • Included in this fee you will also receive a Cyrus Ridge Farm travel cup and two custom leather coasters as a "Thank-You" from us.  

If you would like to visit our mini Scottish Highland cattle, please fill out the form below and we will reach out to you to finalize the details! Additional cup and coaster packages can be purchased at the time of booking for $30.


*Please note, tour fees are collected at the time of booking.  This fee is non-refundable but can be transferred to another date if canceled within a 48-hours of the original booking.

** If you come to our farm for a tour and purchase one of our Scottish Highland or Valais Blacknose within the next 6 months your initial farm tour fee will be credited back to you on your auction invoice. 


Most people come for the animals and stay for the view!  This is your opportunity to do both! Soak in the amazing beauty that is surrounding our farm, while enjoying some animal therapy.
