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 four sections of classes based on age and topic: 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, and feeding animals. Picking up chickens is encouraged 😉 Class sizes are small.
For our littlest farmers Toddler Time (2-4 year olds – one parent/guardian is required), is the perfect hands-on introduction to the farm.
The Hatching Place Classes are a hands on, immersive, on-the-farm experience expansion of our In-home HatchAchick & HatchADuck Programs. Our Chickenology class studies, hatches and cares for baby chicks on the farm. (Geared for Ages 5-11), Our Duckology course which studies, hatches and cares for ducklings on the farm. (Geared for Ages 5-11) and our Farm Anatomy Class which is a general intro class covering various farm related topics with flexibility for group led interests. Great for all ages.
I also offer private classes for groups and/or family classes with a minimum of 6 people enrolled. (Please see the “Party” tab to inquire for a private event/class.
