Classes run from 10:00 AM until 12:00 noon each day, and families are welcome to bring a lunch to enjoy at the farm after class (until 1:00 PM).  Recommended for ages 6 to 12.  Children must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the class.

Have you ever wondered how the food on your plate started out on the farm?  Well wonder no more! We will teach you what your food looks like when it begins its journey at the farm, how it travels from the farm to your kitchen, and how to prepare it perfectly!  This journey includes terms on cuts of meat and dairy products. Also explore what foliage is edible, and take home your very own culinary creations! Check back for ticket information!

Learn about the fiber & textile process from the animal to the artistic creation. In this semi-immersive experience, we’ll talk about wool processing from preparing the fiber to making a garment or other creation. We’ll show you various tools and how they work including carding combs, a spinning wheel, & drop spindles. The lesson will culminate in a needle felting experience where participants can plan and create their own felted project to take home. Check back for ticket information!

Finish out the week with some beloved farm crafts!  Pomeroy Farm’s own staff will be here to share three of our favorite historical crafts: corn husk dolls and hand-dipped candles! You may even have time to meet our favorite farm friend Percy the Goat! Check back for ticket information!
