Animal Care Series: Every Monday 2pm-3:30pm
Learn about the animals we have here on the farm and how to care for them! We'll talk about their diets, health and nutrition, and how to handle or interact with animals safely and carefully. Each week we'll feed the animals and do an activity based on what we've learned.
 
*Geared toward kids age 7 through 12
  • 8/8- Sheep & Chickens! Meet our farm friendly chickens and sheep, learn about what they eat, discuss the importance of sheering sheep's wool, and try to collect some eggs from the hens! We'll also walk to our sheep farm separate from the animal area and see how sheep live day to day on the farm! 
  • 8/15- Cows & Rabbits! We'll take the rabbits out on the lawn to discuss body conditioning, nutrition, and proper handling. Then we'll meet our cows, make our own butter, and practice "milking" using a rubber glove!
  • 8/22- Goats! We'll go into the goat pen to feed them and discuss health and nutrition, bring out the babies and talk about proper care and handling, then we'll try to bottle feed one of the babies and talk a little bit about what it was like to have goats give birth to their kids on the farm!
  • 8/29- Horses/Ponies! We'll bring out our pony, Raphie, to show kids how to move around a horse or pony, then we will work together to groom him before learning how to properly put his saddle on
