A farm staff member will meet your child at the front office of Shelburne Community School at 2:15 pm (on Wednesdays) or 2:50 pm (Mondays and Thursdays) and walk them to New Village Farm. Children may also be dropped off at the farm at 2:45 pm.
We give children an opportunity to tend animals, explore gardens, build hay forts, play outdoor games, and decompress after a busy school day. Fall provides us with opportunities to explore harvest activities like cider pressing, seed saving, and pumpkin carving. Spring is filled with new life-- planting seeds, watching plants emerge, tending chicks, kids, and calves.
Please pack your child a hearty snack to keep them going until pickup.
We will educate the children in safe farm conduct. New Village Farm reserves the right to terminate its relationship with any child who infringes on the safety of him/herself or others by consistently violating the boundaries and conduct requested of them.
