Little Farmers

A wonder-filled program for ages 2-5 and their grownups!

Little Farmers is a wonder-filled program for ages 2-5 and their grownups, where we explore the farm, the food we grow, and our relationships with the natural world. Together, we connect sensory, place-based experiences to the changes on the farm throughout the seasons, with both open-play and inquiry-based activities—such as tasting veggies, learning about worms, and harvesting carrots—that allow little farmers to explore, build confidence, and become comfortable with the outdoors.

Little Farmers Family Feedback

Here’s what Little Farmer families had to say about the program:

  • “We love the hands-on experience. My child attends the program quite frequently, and every session is fantastic. We feel fortunate to have the Little Farmers program in our community. So far, my child’s favorite lesson was picking tomatoes: it was easy for her to choose colors and harvest independently.”

  • “We love all of it! Ice cream making, bug catching, flower picking, storytime.”

  • “We enjoy connecting with other local families. We enjoy the community and seeing friendly, familiar faces. We appreciate all the time and thought put into the program. I’ve been attending for over eight years. First as a nanny and now a parent for the last four years. We appreciate the teachers’ dedication and thoughtful additions. They are kind, sweet, and invested. We enjoyed the blueberry whipped cream. That was fun and silly!”

  • “My son loves going rain or shine. He talks about Cedar Circle all week. It is a 45-minute drive, and he has convinced his grandparents that they must take him if they are watching him. Now, his grandparents have fallen in love with spending Friday mornings at Cedar Circle and enjoying a cup of coffee/sandwiches.”

  • “We love the free and open nature of the class. We can exchange spontaneous conversations and interests. We love the tractor rides”.

  • “We love the tractor rides. We love the direct connection with food, whether berry picking or pickle making. Our 3yo came home and requested we turn cucumbers from our garden into pickles. He completed the process entirely independently.”
