We want to give them the opportunity to be kids, get dirty, climb trees, build shelters, garden, and simply be immersed in nature, animals, and farm life.It’s very difficult to stop a child from learning. Once given the tools and ample space to explore learning and discovery is simply inevitable.
“Nature helps children develop powers of observations and creativity. Children who play in a natural setting play in a more diverse, imaginative, and creative way and show improved language arts and collaboration skills.
Exposure to natural environments improves children’s cognitive development by improving their awareness, reasoning, and observational skills.”
There is no bad weather! We are open rain or shine. Snow or heat. We want to teach them to welcome the rain. Jump in the puddles. Welcome the hot sun and adapt to it all.
Discover fungi, frogs, salamanders, and bugs. Relax in the hammocks. Build a dam or hunt for crawdads in the creek.
Nature is calling. Come find it with us!
Mabel is our family dairy cow.
She is a Jersey and is 6 years old. We milk her once a day and she gives us one gallon of fresh, sweet milk. We make butter, cheese, and ice cream.
Moolan is a female Black Angus calf. She is about 13 months old. She came to the farm with Mabel when she was just 2 weeks old.
Penny is Mabel's calf and she is a miracle! She was born December 28th weighing only 15lbs. (Should've weighed 50-60lbs) She is a fighter and we love her so much. She is growing and improving daily and can be found strutting around in a bright pink coat.
Rosita is our family Nigerian Dwarf dairy goat. (But don't tell her that because she thinks she is a dog that belongs in the house.) She is about 3 years old. She is currently not in milk and will be bred soon. Last year she gave us a pint of milk a day which was made into some awesome Chèvre cheese.
The assistant to the assistant regional manager. He is a 3 year old Babydoll Southdown Sheep. The kids like to ride on him and he tolerates it like a gentleman.
She is also a 3 year old Babydoll Southdown. She enjoys going for a walk on a leash. (Okay, not really enjoy it, but the kids enjoy it and they tolerate it.) We shear them in the Spring and they give us some great wool. Minnie is pregnant and should lamb in early Spring!
She is a female Nigerian Dwarf goat. Clem is as sweet as can be and is the tiniest goat I've ever seen.
Coconut is also a female Nigerian Dwarf goat. She has beautiful blue eyes and loves everyone that feeds her.
Our little Spanish lover.He is a playful Nigerian Dward buckling. This farm needed a little testosterone.
