From Farm to Market

Learn about growing crops and raising livestock as you help us with our daily chores in our fields and barns. Explore how and why we grow and raise what we produce, and how food gets from the farm to your table. Observe different earth-friendly farming practices and discuss how they support healthy food and a healthy planet. Depending on the season, participate in planting, weeding, harvesting, or caring for livestock.
