Summertime Farm Classes

We offer seasonal learning experiences … on a real working farm in scenic Pennsylvania. Some of our classes are aimed at children, but we offer classes for adults also (Adult classes at bottom of the page). Topics and class structure will change often. Do you have an idea for a class? Let us know! We can put together a learning adventure especially for your club, civic organization or family group to take together!

Classes for Children
