|FARM VISIT PROGRAM
We’d love to have you and your group visit the farm!Together we can do many fun activities to help you experience what farm life and organic agriculture are like.
WHAT CAN MY GROUP DO ON THE FARM?
We can custom tailor programs to meet the needs of your group, depending on your interests, age of visitors, duration of the visit, etc. Among the many activities we regularly have available for school or camp visitors to the farm are:
• Collecting eggs and caring for the chickens
• Harvesting crops: some of the favorites include tomatoes, flowers, and pumpkins
• Learning about the diversity of “heritage” breed animals, and “heirloom” plants, and why diversity is important. Includes feeding the sheep, goats, rabbits, and turkeys.
Growing from seeds: how a greenhouse works, planting seeds and caring for plants
Often, tours are preceeded or followed by your group enjoying the lunch they have brought, in our picnic area.
