Our program is broken up into classrooms based on the students age during enrollment.

Little Farmers:
Class 1; ages 3 – 4 (must be potty trained) & Class 2; ages 5 - 7
Similar to our past Farm School programs, this program is an introduction to farming while introducing new skills and opportunities. Jr. Farmers will learn basic farming skills, take care of animals, help with farm chores, and learn how to build a sustainable farm. Their day will be filled with animal cuddles, unstructured play, stories, art, and fun on the farm.

Jr. Farmers:
Class 1; ages 8 – 10 & Class 2; ages 11 +
Our Jr. Farmers spend their day attending workshops and hands on activities. Last semester we time dedicated to Wilderness Survival class, outside speakers and more! Jr Farmers will rotate through workshops that focus on areas like Livestock Husbandry, Sustainable farming and farm to table classes, all which provide an immersive hands-on farm experience. Interacting with over 150 animals will be just one of the many perks of farm school.

All Farm School classes will also indulge in lots of animal cuddles!
