Farm tours introduce Deer Hollow babies

Deer Hollow Farm is opening for two spring farm tours, giving locals a chance to take the kids to meet the farm's new kids — as well as chicks and lambs — on Saturday, April 16, and again on May 21. Piglets are expected to arrive sometime in May, according to Elizabeth Montgomery, a board member of the Friends of Deer Hollow Farm.

Docent-led tours last about 45 minutes and offer a chance to meet the animals and learn about life on a homestead as it would have been in 1850. Besides sheep, goats and chickens, the farm is also home to rabbits, ducks, geese and Luna the cow. Tours include a screening of the short film, "Lessons of the Land."

Tours run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and cost $5 per person, free for children under age 2. Deer Hollow is a 10-acre working farm partially funded by the city of Mountain View. It's located about a mile from the main entrance of Rancho San Antonio County Park. Groups of 10 or more should make reservations by e-mailing info@ Information in online at
