WE are a working farm consisting of 240 acres. We grow a huge vegetable garden that we use for our kitchen. we have blackberries, grape, a pear tree, and one apple tree. we raise soybeans, hay, pumpkins, and corn on our farm. we also have beef cattle, a goat, a sheep, hens, roosters and many chicks. all animals ae watched over by our cats and by Micky our dog. we now have two pot bellied pigs, rosie and grumpy. they are waiting for you to visit.
listed below are some activities that are offered. I am always open to any suggestions that you may have. if the teacher will let me know in advance, I can and will plan a new activity.
we have a hayride: the students get to view the pastures, ponds and beef cattle. they also get to hand feed the cows. also, we will stop in the woods to view the early spring wildflowers. there is so much to experience on the ride. every student gets to pretend they are driving the tractor.
visit the hen house:
during the visit the students learn about the hens, roosters and baby chicks. they learn their feed and water schedules, and how often they lay their eggs. they see the nest and roost. they may even get to gather the eggs, pet the chickens, and feed corn to the hungry birds. the students will shell the corn on an antique corn sheller in the tobacco barn.
explore the maze:
we are teaching students where their food comes from. walk through the early spring garden. they may help plant some of the vegetables. the students see peas, carrots, beets, lettuce, and onions. we also have cabbage, squash, and broccoli.
we always have a make and break project:
Planting a seed, it will be a squash or tomato seed, or they may choose to decorate a clay saucer for birds to drink from.
the class will create a class mural of their day on the farm completed by a presentation at the end of the day, if time permits.
