Below are the two 4-H Clubs hosted by Wolfe's Neck Farm.
"Barn and Pasture Club" This club is for kids in grades 2-6. 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. October is the official start of the 4-H year and we’d like to get started on October 10th. This year, we are going to be holding 4-H every Thursday from 4:00-5:30 PM. Children taking the bus from Freeport arriving a few minutes earlier will be met by our 4-H Leaders.
Our year will be broken into “semesters” with the Fall Semester running ten weeks: starting on October 10th and ending with the last meeting on December 19th. We will not have a club meeting on Thanksgiving Day. We will have a few weeks break in the winter, but start up again with our Winter Semester in February and continuing through the school year AND into summer for those students looking to carry projects into the fair season for show. Right now, we’re only asking students to make one semester commitment at a time.
This year, we are asking parents to contribute $6 a week to help cover our costs for the program. By charging a small fee for the program, we’ll be able to ensure the club has the materials and supplies it needs, and to expand on our exploration and learning. Online Registration can be found here: https://fs19.formsite.com/wolfesneckfarm/wolfes-neck-farm-4-h/secure_index.html or you can always call to register by phone.
"Baby Beef Club" for anyone in grades 7-12 with an interest in learning more about raising beef cattle. 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 first and third Wednesday of every month, except in November, in which we meet on the first and second Wednesday, November 6th and 13th.
