Learning About Livestock
New for 2022, our Livestock Program has been a popular option for children 5 and older. We work with 5 nearby farms to offer children hands-on experiences showing livestock (rabbits, poultry, dairy cattle, sheep, goats and pigs) at local fairs. For a series of months, children work with “their animals” to understand the importance of animal husbandry, hard work and the skills required to take the animal to a show. Please note, we are SOLD OUT for this season, but will be accepting new families in November for 2023. Please complete the form below to learn more.
Time for Chores
Appropriate for children ages 4-12, participants learn about the care we provide to our animals and the responsibilities on a farm. They will receive exclusive access to select animal pens and special animal encounters. Families can book a 4-week session with half-hour intervals ($50) or an individual hour-long session for a single day ($25).
Children accompany a Farmyard staff member and must wear closed-toe shoes.
