Half Day Classes
Our half day classes in late June offer younger children a chance to explore the farm at a more leisurely pace than our earlier classes. Most of their time will be spent choosing activities during our "Free Play/Exploration" time, which will include:
Learning about safety while on the farm
Feeding the farm animals
Making bread, jam, and homemade butter
Harvesting vegetables from the garden
Exploring irrigation at our water play tables
Setting up a farmer's market stand on Fridays
And, much, much more!
