What Our Workshops Offer:

Depending on each individuals needs and the season, we are able to offer one on one support of an individual in our farm environment.  During the summer season, we will be working with pasture raised chicken and turkey, lawn maintenance and the care garden.  We pride ourselves in the care for our animals, our sustainable and humane farm practice and our support of the local community.  During the winter and colder months, ongoing care of our free range happy egg layers will continue as well as in the barn activities, including wood working and pre garden prep.  In the early spring we pride ourselves on our maple syrup production. We want to hear from you what you would enjoy doing!

We currently are accepting clients for respite during the day. 830 am until 3:30 pm. Monday to Friday. Message or call to book your space.
