Our farm educational programs are intended to expose children and adults to real farm life, from our organic vegetable production to our heritage breed animals and sustainable practices. Classes meet under the white tent behind the Farmstand. In the event of rain, we will hold classes either in a greenhouse or under our tent. Participants should wear farm appropriate clothes including closed-toe shoes or boots, clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, and wear sunscreen and bug spray. Classes are open to the general public.
