Terra Firma Farm

Join Farmer Brie on this working livestock and poultry farm for a hands-on experience. Visitors from grades K-4 can do real farm animal chores, like feeding the pigs, goats, and donkeys, and collecting eggs from the laying hens. Farm trips can also include other agriculture-based activities, including gardening, cooking, canning and preserving food, cheese and butter making, fiber arts, natural crafts, and more. A special Home School program combines animal care, gardening, building, journal writing, and drawing for an integrated learning experience.
