Farm Overnight Experience

Spend a day and night in the life of a farmer. From milking the goats, collecting eggs, and feeding the animals in the morning, to specially adapted programs during the day to help your class meet their Life Cycle learning objectives. In the evening we'll enjoy dinner around the fire before hitting the straw, where we will sleep in the hayloft of the barn! Suitable for Grades 3 to 12.

Chicks in the Classroom - Set-Up Visit CAD$350 per appointmentNo purchase required to enroll

Hatching chicks in your classroom can be such a rewarding experience! We have seen countless students who are typically disengaged in a classroom setting suddenly feel real responsibiility and pride in their new role as a farmer. Hatching chicks is typically done in Grades k, 1, 2, 4, 6, and 7 to meet the Life Sciences learning objectives, but it goes over well in any grade, and high schoolers even benefit from the fun, seriousness, deeper thinking, teamwork, and mentorship that can be incorporated into a chicks in the classroom program. Our Farmers are also certified teachers. We are super enthusiastic and keen to make this an incredible experience for your class, and an easy experience for you.
