Farm Activities & Programs

Looking for something fun to do, while enjoying the summer weather?  Contact us for a family outing, or a special birthday party!

FARM YOGA - Saturdays for July and August - 9 am class and 7 pm class. Contact us for availability, as these fill up!  Enjoy an hour of yoga with top-notch instructor Laurie Jo Lindroos, while the farmyard creatures try to distract you from your poses.  Bring a washable towel or blanket and yoga mat (you will be right on the ground in the paddock); bring blocks and straps if you have them. $20/person. Weather dependent; fees can transfer to a future class if the weather is bad. Animals who join the class include baby goats, adult goats, young lamb, chickens, cats; the miniature horses are nearby. All skill levels and ages are welcome in this fun class.

After a brief safety lesson, kids can brush the little horses, braid their manes, decorate them with ribbons, silk flowers and safe, washable paints (provided).

SELF-GUIDED FARM TOURS - by appointment, visitors can walk through the farm yard to see the animals. We have a WANTED poster showing most of the animals on the place - see if you can find them all. Remember, you are visiting the animals' home, so please respect them by being quiet and gentle. (This is by donation, so as to not exclude families who cannot afford a set admission charge.)
