About the event
Farm School for Tot's will be held on two separate days within a single month. Farm School is a hands-on, animal interactive, program on our family-owned farm that allows your child the opportunity to learn by doing. This is a child-led class where children will have the ability to play, explore, learn & create in our outdoor classroom, surrounded by farm animals and nature.
Each class will have a loose focus, allowing children to lead according to their interests and abilities. Children will likely interact with a variety of animals, including but not limited to: birds (chickens, ducks, turkeys, guinea & quail), sheep, goats, pigs & rabbits.
Recommended for Ages 2-4, All abilities welcome.
