Winterpast Farm

A family farm with lots to see, Winterpast Farm can arrange outdoor field trips for school, scout, and youth groups. Visitors can meet and pet the animals, have a garden activity, learn about planting, and try other activities such as tree identification, arts and crafts, and fun team-building games. Groups will get to handle different animal fibers, feathers, and plants, and learn about other things on the farm. For schools unable to travel, Farmer Mary can come to the classroom with animals and provide a hands-on lesson. Winterpast Farm is next to Falls Lake Trail, perfect for hiking.
