Introducing our summer workshop series for kids!

Children's Workshop Series

GENERAL INFO

Recommended for ages 6-10. Children 2+ require ticket. Max age 12 years old.

Each child attending the workshops must have a parent or chaperone accompany them and remain onsite for the duration of the program.  One adult may accompany several children from the same family or group.  Please do not bring more chaperones than requested. Chaperones do not need to purchase tickets.

Families and groups are welcome to bring a picnic with them and stick around to enjoy their lunch after the workshop!  Guests can enjoy their picnic lunches on the festival grounds and visit with the animals for a bit before they head home.  Grounds will remain open until 1:00 pm.

"Farm Animal Fun" | August 16th, 2022 | 10:00 - 12:00
Have you ever wondered what it might be like to be a kid living on the farm?  Join us to learn one of the most important aspects of farm life--animal care!  We'll meet each of the farm animals and discuss their purpose on the farm and the products they give us.  Children will help out with some of the animal chores (including feeding!), and participate in an activity that will demonstrate some of the things we can make with the help of our animals!

"All About Bees" | August 17th, 2022 | 10:00 - 12:00
By popular demand, Joy Boschler of Joyful Honey & Beekeeping will be here to teach us All About Bees!  Children will learn the basics of our favorite pollinators and go on a scavenger hunt around the farm grounds to look for helpful critters before building pollinator-friendly habitats of their own to take home!

"Historic Crafts" | August 18th, 2022 | 10:00 - 12:00
In this workshop, children will get to try their hand at three of our favorite traditional farm crafts--corn husk dolls, tin can lanterns, and hand-dipped candles!  Get a hands-on education in farm fun as we walk step-by-step through each of these handy crafts, and personalize each of them to take home!
