SPRING 2024 REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!
NWA Farm School was established in 2022
On the Farm learning...
Welcome to NWA Farm School, for the past 2 years we have been a place for students to be immersed into a full day of hands-on adventures, full of learning new skills that provide our students with the tools they need to become self-sufficient community members and future leaders. We have served well over 400 students in our farm programs and continue to see growth each semester. Our farm houses over 150 animals for students to interact with every day they attend.
This Spring by request of our parents, we are hosting a NWA Family Farm School by providing an opportunity for parents to also attend farm school with their students. In addition, we are adding an amazing Horsemanship program at the farm, taught by one of our SHN Academy teachers and the owner of Stormy Acres, Mrs. Erica. As our NWA Farm School program continues to grow, we can’t help but offer more opportunities to our community so they also can experience the amazing cuddles our farm animals give!
Below you can explore all of our amazing Farm School programs and see why so many families love NWA Farm School by Alternate Community Education.

Join us on the farm for an educational tour of our farm. Families and children will explore the farm for a full hands-on experience while learning about farm animals and farming. Our farm houses over 150 animals ready to be fed and cuddled.
We bring Farm School to YOU!
Our Mobile Farm School program brings Farm School to your place of business, afterschool program, school, church, or daycare. We will bring 1 – 3 small animals for students to love and cuddle, and provide a hands-on educational program for all ages.
Throughout the year we host public farm events to help support our animals. From Hoedowns, Pizza & Movie Nights, Holiday Events and much more! We would love for you to bring the whole family and join us on the farm for some good ol’ country fun!
Once a month we host a family volunteer day for families to come work on the farm while learning about our mission and meeting our animals. It’s a great way to learn important life skills while learning how to tend to animals and get lots of animal cuddles!
