2021-22 Farm School Program Grades K-5th

This program is designed to reinforce children’s connection to the living world and recognize their place and value within it. We do chores and projects together, garden and explore the natural world. The goals of this program include inspiring a deep connection to the land and animals, and building the capacities for confidence, independence, and joy in life and work.

 

No two days are the same, but we do follow the same rhythm each day. We start the day with morning chores, where we take care of the animals on the farm, including goats, cows, bunnies, chickens, and ducks. Chores are followed by snack, which is followed by free time or projects. We believe there to be equal value in their creating their own play and projects, and working with us. We do not force either and typically find that most students strike a nice balance between the two. Projects often include construction/carpentry, nature crafts, or food projects. In the springtime, the farm is buzzing with new life, and we spend time with new babies, seedlings, and maple sugaring. Afternoons are usually spent venturing out of the barnyard for lunch and exploring the thawing woods and marshes around us before we return to the farm to check on the animals before leaving for the day.

We are currently registering students for Spring 2022!

What to Bring

  • Hearty snack and lunch

  • Water bottle (and warm drink, when it's cold)

  • Sunscreen

  • Bug spray

  • Hat (sun or warm)

  • Farm gloves

  • Clothing for the weather and the farm. We will get muddy and mucky often. For rain, children need a raincoat, rain pants, and boots; in winter, winter parka, snow pants, and boots. It is a good idea to designate a set of outdoor clothes “farm clothes” if possible.

  • A change of clothes is always a good idea in case we get wet.

Please leave all electronic devices at home. This includes phones, smartwatches, tablets, game devices, etc.
