As important as sharing our farm products is to us, connecting to our community through sharing knowledge, experiences and ideas is truly what drives us. We want to help people reconnect with their food sources and offer experiences that inspire, teach and promote a more sustainable way of living. As mentioned in our “About Us”, we have backgrounds in garden education and small scale agriculture. We can come to your classroom or community event, or can offer your group hands-on experiences through an interactive farm tour. With greenhouses, diversified annual and perennial gardens, and many animals including goats, sheep, pigs and chickens, there is so much to see and do on a farm tour. Depending on the interests and focus of your group, we are able to tailor your tour or presentation to make it as meaningful as possible. Here are some topics that really inspire us:
organic gardening basics
wild edible plants
cutting and arranging flowers
starting your own garden from seed
raising backyard chickens
goats: are they as tricky as they say?
integrating farm animals and vegetable gardens
managing garden pests without chemicals
small scale aquaculture
fall & winter gardening
growing your own mushrooms
food preservation & traditions
Chores on the Farm
Join us the first Friday of every month for “chores on the farm.” Bring the whole family and help us take care of our farm animals. Chores could include feeding pigs, milking goats, collecting eggs from chickens and more. Follow us on social media for date and time reminders.
