Interested in signing your child up for farm classes, but need a little bit more information first? You’re in the right place.
Hi! I’m Lindsey, and I’m so happy that you’re here. I’m a previous pediatric occupational therapy practitioner turned organic farmer, modern homesteader and farm educator. We currently raise Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats, chickens, ducks, and bunnies on our small organic family farm. I’m the teacher behind farm classes for kids. I left the therapy world behind to focus on raising our three little ones while continuing to expand our modern homestead. With a love for sustainable living, regenerative farming, and working with children, the dream of offering Farm Classes for kids became a reality. I currently teach two sections of classes on the farm based on age. Class curriculum is developmentally appropriate while also introducing kids to farming. We want children to be EXCITED about learning where the food comes from!
During farm classes, kids are exposed to gardening, harvesting vegetables (when in season), collecting farm-fresh eggs from the coop, hatching chicks or ducks, caring and feeding animals with a new animal focus or farm theme each week. Picking up chickens is encouraged! 😉 Class sizes are small.
For our littlest farmers Toddler Time (1-4 year olds – one parent/guardian is required), is the perfect hands-on introduction to the farm, this class includes themed story time, craft, activities and animal interaction each week. Every semester is different while rotating animal interaction each week.
I also offer private farm sessions for groups and/or family classes with a 4 ticket minimum. (Please see the “Party” tab to inquire for a private session.)
