Children’s Farm Camps in Chatham County, NC

Our children’s Farm Camps connect children to the wonder and beauty of the farm through food, nutrition, farming, and participation in traditional crafts.

We offer summer camps and year-round camps to accommodate everyone. Year-round Farm Camps allow us to show how the change of season affects farming. Take a look at our Farm Camps below for more details.

Home School Farm Days

Home School Farm Days connects children to the wonder and beauty of the farm through food, nutrition, farming, and participation in traditional crafts.

Young farmers will join us once a month for eight months to learn about sustainable agriculture by milking cows, feeding pigs, collecting eggs, working with goats, feeding poultry, caring for babies and working in the garden. Young Farmers will learn firsthand how farming changes throughout the seasons and how it stays the same.

Young farmers will learn how to make cheese, yogurt, butter and ice cream as well as other nutritional food that come straight from the farm. Farmers will also learn how to make traditional crafts, play with science and solve problems while working cooperatively with other young farmers and the animals that surround them.
