Below are the three 4-H Clubs hosted by Wolfe's Neck Farm. 4-H programs only require dues to be paid to Maine Cooperative Extension. All programs listed are offered by Wolfe's Neck Farm without charge.
"Barn and Pasture Club" This club is for kids ages 8-11 and focuses on learning about and developing projects pertaining to animals here at the farm, including sheep, chickens, turkeys, ducks and goats. This club is new to Wolfe's Neck Farm and we're opening up the group to students second grade to fifth grade. This club for younger students focuses on animals in "Barns and Pastures." This means our group will learn about and develop projects focusing on all the animals on the farm. Meetings will begin on September 20th and will be held every other Thursday. Meetings will run from 4-5 PM. Our leaders are Debbie Harrison and Ruth Thyen, both of whom have been involved with their children at the farm for over a year and have children who will be participating in the group.
"Baby Beef Club" for anyone age 12-18 with an
interest in learning more about raising beef. Participants learn about the economics and the science of producing quality beef animals for market. Participants have the opportunity to board animals at the farm, but are
not required to own their own animals to be an active participant. Wolfe’s Neck Farm Baby Beef Club meets on the
third Wednesday of every month, except in November, in which we meet on the
second Wednesday, November 14th.
"Farm Hands" is a program similar to our other 4-H clubs, but with less of a time commitment for those still gauging their interest in working with animals. Meeting time TBD.
