Chepachet Farms

Chepachet Farms is a working farm where students can learn where wool comes from, gather eggs, and more. Farm field trips include a hayride, a tour of the Maple Sugar House, and a hands-on agricultural or environmental activity. What visit to the farm would be complete without feeding animals? Petting zoo residents include a miniature horse, llamas, a pot-bellied pig, and even chickens known as “Easter-eggers” that lay colored eggs! Depending on the season, groups may also go on a fun nature walk, complete with a scavenger hunt; and pick strawberries and blueberries, right off the plant.
