PUBLIC PARK This summer, Retreat Farm’s expansive outdoor campus and trails will be transformed into a public park for you to explore. Viewable from many angles, Carlos the Ox along with the farm’s entertaining cast of goats, sheep, pigs, and chickens will take center stage in the park as they rotationally graze on pastures around the property.
