Program Description

We offer PUMPKIN PATCH experiences, FARM TOURS, COB OVEN PIZZA BAKING EXPERIENCES, CUSTOM VISITS, and OVERNIGHT PROGRAMS. Our enthusiastic and qualified Farm Educators can give your class a unforgetable and real farm experience, tailored to your learning objectives. The farm has an orchard, honey bees, chickens, milking goats, sheep, market garden, and horses. We can cater to all ages and levels of learning, from grade 12 sustainability classes to preschool, and we would love to show you and your group what life is like on the farm. We aim to make your experience at the farm safe, engaging, and a great hands-on learning experience that you and your group will remember forever.
