Little Farmers

Little Farmers ages 2-5 along with their caregivers are guided by an experienced educator to explore the farm, the food we grow, and the relationships we have with the natural world. Sensory place-based lessons are tied to the changes happening on the farm throughout the season.

Registration is required.

If you have any questions about the program, please feel free to contact Molly, our Education Lead.
