You will get a true modern farm experience on our diversified vegetable and animal farm. When you arrive, your hosts will explain how their urban farm is unique, sustainable and provides food to local schools.
Next, you'll be led by Farmer Shayne and Farmer Hope to watch 'chicken TV' and be amazed at the social behaviors of the chickens, give a pig a belly rub and become part of the baby goat obstacle course. We will explain what you are seeing and how the animals contribute to the farm. Our animals are part of the farm and always treated with respect and love.
Then Rachel,The Beecharmer, will show you the important work bees are doing on the farm and suit you up for a hive dive into the secret life of honey bees. Pollination is such an important part of farming and our bees live right here on our sustainable farm. You'll see the bees working together in the hive to make honey, collecting pollen in their 'pollen pockets' and if we are lucky we will spot the queen bee.
Finally, you will try your hand at basic farm tasks while learning what it takes to raise vegetables and animals sustainably in the urban landscape. We will talk about how our farm is unique and why eating local makes you feel so great. You will taste a variety of vegetables as you harvest the freshest salad you will ever eat, sample honey from the hive and pick a bouquet of flowers to take home with you.
