Update regarding covid19: Property Closure
May 26, 2020
At this point, Duke Farms continues to be closed to the public. We are currently working to bring the property back online.
The first two Duke Farms programs that will come back online are:
The Duke Farms Community Garden (a private garden, not open to the general public) will start their season on June 1.
Our Farm to Table Market will reopen on Sundays starting June 7 from 11am - 3 pm. Guidelines will be posted here. Again, all trails and buildings will continue to be closed while the market operates.

Duke Farms is a private, nonprofit, private property and is not included in the reopening of State and County managed parks.
We will continue to be closed until further notice and look forward to an eventual, and cautious reopening. When we do reopen, the information will be posted here, the front page of our website, on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. Please follow us on our platforms to receive updates when they happen.

The health and safety of Duke Farms’ employees, volunteers, visitors, and community members is our top priority. Staff has been working with state and local health officials throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to implement measures to make sure Duke Farms does everything possible to help address this public health crisis.
Out of an abundance of caution, combined with our commitment to ensure the safety of our community, Duke Farms has made the decision to close to the public starting March 14 until further notice.
This a full closure, which includes but is not limited to the Farm Barn Orientation Center, Café, Orchid Range, Community Garden, Arboretum, the bicycle rental program, and all trails. All gates will be closed to the public, as well as the entrance to the Farm Barn parking lots. All programs and events will be canceled or rescheduled to a later date.
We look forward to that time when we can reopen and provide each visitor, employee, and volunteer with a positive, safe, and healthy experience at Duke Farms.
