A Day on The Farm

A Day On The Farm

School and educational opportunities available by advance reservation only

“What does the rooster say?”

Designed especially for kindergarten and first grade, this is a fun and exciting fast- paced program introducing youngsters to life on the farm. Children learn about and interact with various farm animals, such as our pig, Squirt, our chickens, goats, quail, Florida heritage “Cracker” cattle and rabbits. They learn about the role of animals on the farm and will learn where milk, eggs, meat, honey, vegetables and sugar cane come from. The experience may include a hayride and a tour of the vegetable garden.
