Get the kids out of the house this summer for a fun time on the farm! Kids who participate in our Read, Learn, Grow hour-long program will enjoy story time each Wednesday morning at 9:00 or 10:30. During story time, they will:
- Read a book about farming, fruits, veggies, insects, and more,
- Immerse themselves on the farm, reading the stories at different spots around the farm pertinent to the book of the week,
- Participate in an activity and take home something special each week – from hand-picked fruit to a hand-made craft!
