Do you love delicious, healthy and organic produce? Would you like to show your children how sustainable, organic produce is grown? Join Nigel for a tour especially for children and parents who are curious about organic farming. Each group who attends will be sent home with a CSA box filled with deliciously ripe, organic produce to share at home.
Children and chaperones will walk the farm with Nigel and learn about: - Soil and the organisms that grow in the soil - How chickens have a very important role on the farm (They do more than give tasty eggs!) - How bugs, pests, parasites and bats contribute to farm life - How the farm is a well balanced environment that provides great food for everyone without poisoning the environment.
While walking the farm, everyone will have the opportunity to taste fresh, organic produce. We hope we'll still have beautiful, red strawberries ripe for picking.
In addition to chickens, the children will visit our three Guernsey milk cows, our horse Stella, and over 150 ducks and geese.
We request that each group have at least one adult for every 4 children attending. Most of the farm is stroller and motorized wheelchair accessible, although it can be somewhat of a rugged and dusty terrain in some spots.
