Plan Your Visit

A Farm Tour & Lunch Includes:

A guided tour through P. Allen Smith’s three-story Greek Revival-style home. Guests will learn about P. Allen Smith’s authentic design approach that pays homage to the history of the farm. 

Explore Arkansas’ beautiful countryside overlooking the Arkansas River while touring Allen’s Terrace Garden, the Hidden Rose Garden, Hydrangea Allée, and his one-acre Vegetable Garden.

Connect to the land as you sit down to a farm-to-table lunch featuring a Seasonal recipe from P. Allen Smith’s book, Seasonal Recipes from the Garden. For dessert, enjoy a slice of Allen’s famous buttermilk pecan pie with homemade whipped cream. If you have food allergies, let us know, we will try our best to accommodate you!

Last but certainly not least, a visit to Poultryville to meet the chickens and other animals. Learn about Allen’s effort to conserve America’s early poultry breeds and why he started the Heritage Poultry Conservancy. While you are there, say hi to your favorite farm animals from Allen’s television show—Trudy, Moose, Smudge & Squeak, just to name a few.

Touring the grounds will be comprised of up to 2 miles of walking. Wear comfortable walking shoes. There is a lot of walking, but you can do as much or as little as you want.

Gates will be open 30 minutes before scheduled tour. Digital or printed ticket is not needed for entry. Your name will be on the list at the registration area located near the restrooms in the parking area.

We do not cancel for rain. Bring your umbrella and rubber boots!

Please note our lunch & tours are typically not kid-friendly, unless clearly noted due to the subject of the event. All guests, regardless of age, must purchase a ticket.

A Note from Moss Mountain Farm for Spring Guests

The 2020 Spring Moss Mountain Farm Tours and Events season kicked off the week of March 12th with a celebration of Daffodils and a special lunch in honor of Mr. Smith’s Birthday.  With the COVID-19 virus on everyone’s mind, we want to update our guests with our schedule and plans. While monitoring direction from the Arkansas Department of Health and federal government, we are taking steps to insure the safest possible environment for our team members, friends and guests.  We balance this with our fans’ interest and enthusiasm in experiencing our gardens and creative world. 

Unless affected by regulations by the State of Arkansas, Moss Mountain Farm is honoring Spring Open House and Private Tour contracts, as scheduled.  As guidance is in flux, we are directly communicating with Tour Organizers should their date be affected by government restrictions. Rest assured, we want all our fans to experience Moss Mountain Farm and will work with you on your visit this year.   

Event Organizers, please watch your inbox for updates and guidance to communicate to your group. Because of the increased volume of questions coming into our office regarding Spring Tours, in addition to the scheduling of Fall Tours, our small team is working overtime to accommodate each guest.  Please continue to work with us, we may be slightly delayed in replying to you!  

At Moss Mountain Farm we have been attuned to health, safety, and sanitation issues since our founding as a biosecure facility for our important heritage poultry collection, guests and employees.  And, for the remainder of the year during open houses we have added protocols to increase vigilance with sanitation and safety, including increased cleaning schedules of commonly touched surfaces, bathroom facilities and railings, reminders to guests of recommended social greetings and proximity, daily review of staff health, and increased availability of hand sanitizers.

We also want to take a moment to revisit the unique configuration of both the Farm and our Tours to better inform our guests of their experience while planning a visit.  Moss Mountain Farm is an open air, outdoor environment, with Tours and Events that allow for adjustable social distancing as preferred, and op-in/opt-out flexibility for our small group Home walk throughs.  Guest comfort and safety are paramount to our team. 

In the unlikely event that a guest is affected by the COVID-19 virus, is exhibiting symptoms, or is suspected of being affected by the virus, we ask those guests to follow federal guidelines for remaining out of contact with the public, including their visit to Moss Mountain Farm.  We have temporarily adapted our Tour Policy to allow those affected guests to reschedule their visit to an alternative, regularly scheduled date in 2020 or receive a Gift Certificate good for the 2020 calendar year. Please ask your Tour Organizer (the person who originally purchased the ticket for touring Moss Mountain) to contact our office at gardenhome@pallensmith.com.  One of our team members will then reschedule your visit, if this affects you. 

Our thoughts and prayers are with all our friends.
