Visit Doko Farm
When researching our farm's history, and that of the surrounding area, we came across multiple meanings for the name Doko, the original name of the train station that later became the town of Blythewood. One meaning that especially resonated with us was "gathering place." We hope that Doko Farm will become a gathering place for our family, friends and community. We invite you to spend part of your day with us. It seems that there is always something going on at Doko Farm!
Please read the following guidelines for a safe farm visit.
While we do everything we can to ensure our visitors' safety, please remember that Doko Farm is a real, working farm. As such, there are some hazards, including: fire ants, ticks, mosquitoes, poison ivy, farm tools, equipment, electric fences, barb wire, and livestock. Visitors must wear enclosed shoes, for safety and comfort. We also recommend sunscreen and long pants.
Supervised children are welcomed and encouraged to visit Doko Farm.
Pets are not permitted.

A Girl Scout Silver Award Project by Courtney and Phoebe
Here at Doko Farm, we completed our own Silver Award project by building a bench. This bench benefits the community because when people visit Doko Farm, they get tired and need a place to rest that's out of the sun. We completed this project in the summers of 2021 and 2022. We built this bench around a tree—using materials from a felled tree right here on the farm—near the pasture so people can observe the animals while resting.
