2020 SCHEDULE

JANUARY 11 | Snow, Snow & More Snow
Start the new year with a lesson on the water cycle. Participants will learn how water gets around and why it’s important for the farm by making a cloud in a bottle, exploring water sources on the farm (most likely as snow or ice), making snowflake crafts and enjoying a story.

FEBRUARY 8 | Wood for Warmth
Lumber is an important agricultural resource too! Your child will learn how trees can be grown and harvested like other plants, how to identify some common trees of New England, hear a story about trees and make a craft. 

MARCH 7 | Maple Syrup
Maple syrup season is one of our favorite times at the farm. Participants will learn about the trees necessary for good maple syrup, learn how it is collected and made by completing a maze and enjoying a craft and story about the sugaring process. 

APRIL 18 | Planting Time
It’s planting season here on the farm. With the ground thawing and the snow melting, it's time to get seeds in the ground. Participants will learn the life cycle of plants while helping to plant a small garden right here on the farm. Take home a few planted seeds to observe while they grow!

MAY 9 | Little Animals Everywhere
Spring on the farm is an active season, especially with all the new farm babies. Participants will meet the Remick livestock, including the new arrivals, while learning how to care for animals on the farm. We will conclude our time with a thematic farm story and craft project.

JUNE 13 | Got Cows? CANCELED
It’s dairy month, and this lesson is focused on everything cow. Meet the dairy herd, learn how to milk a cow, and see if they can turn that milk into butter. There will be a cow-related craft and story, along with other hands-on activities that will connect participants to the life of a dairy cow.



COST: $6 per child; for children ages 2–6
This is not a drop-off program; parents/guardians must stay with their child and are invited to participate. There is no fee for the child’s accompanying parent(s)/chaperone(s) for the activity time itself; our $5 general admission fee will apply to all who wish to participate in any aspect of the Museum & Farm beyond the activity time, with the exception of the child that participated in the session. Children should be dressed for time outdoors and the forecasted weather. Call 603-323-7591 to register.
