Field House Farm is happy to announce the schedule for three week long sessions of our Summer Agriculture Program for Children.

The program will introduce kids to basic farming practices, allowing them to plant and harvest in our large garden and greenhouse. We will learn about what grows in Connecticut and what all of us can do with just a small amount of space, or even containers! Kids will leave with the skills to grow some of their own veggies to share with their families! Kids will also learn about the animals that we have on our farm, including chickens, ducks, turkeys, donkey, pigs, sheep, goats, and cows. We will discuss the care of these animals and the kids will be allowed to participate in their care….and their play! Additionally, each day will allow time for either a nature themed Art class, an Earth and food science class, or nature crafts with specialized teachers.

The program will have the following sessions:
