Sharing farm life with children for two generations.

Summer 2017

Registration, Fees, Calendar and Space Availability

Is the Farm a Match for Your Child?


The Country School Farm gives children a realistic view of another way of living that is much like a farm in the early 1900's. Please explain to your child that this is not a camp or school in the traditional sense, but the Barkers' family farm, their home. Visiting children become active participants in the day-to-day life of the farm and depart on Friday bearing long-lasting feelings of satisfaction. In aid of this outcome, we will ask your child to follow the "rules of the farm" outlined on Monday morning after arrival. Visitors are encouraged to try their best to be good guests and willing participants.
