There's always something to do and learn at Wolfe's Neck Farm. We hope you will bring your class or group to learn at the Farm.
We're also in the business of educating educators about sustainable agriculture and the natural world. Be sure to check out our Learning Resources for Educators!
We offer dynamic, hands-on education about the food we eat, the animals and plants we depend on, and the environment around us.
Groups of all ages and sizes visit the farm, from preschools to high school classes, from scouting groups to home school associations and afterschool programs.
We offer four programs:
Farm School (April, May, or June)
Farm School is a chance for classes to take their learning outside and onto the Farm. Explore life on the farm as we learn about where our food comes from, gardening, animal care, watersheds, soils, waste, and more! This is a two to five day curriculum, geared towards third through twelfth grade students.
Spring Field Trips (May or June)
Welcome Spring at the Farm! Our Spring Field Trips provide hands-on exploration of the Farm. This is a 1.5 hour curriculum geared toward pre-K and early elementary grades, scouting groups, preschools, and play groups.
We can tailor your visit to your students' curiosities and your goals in the classroom. Let us know if you want to learn all about sheep, go for a nature walk, explore the shore, nature journal, or pursue other lessons...the possibilities are endless!
Fall Field Trips (September and October)
Explore plant science at our pumpkin patch and help with morning chores in the barn this fall. Students meet our sheep, goats, cows, chickens, turkeys, and rabbits. Groups also take a hayride, learn about plant life cycles and plant science at the pumpkin patch and in the garden, and pick their very own pumpkins. This is a 1.5 hour field trip that's great for elementary school groups, homeschooling groups, scout troups and more.
Outreach Education (September through June)
Bringing the Farm to your School: Wolfe’s Neck Farm brings the farm to your classroom. Activities and lessons introduce concepts to be covered in coming trips to the farm or to supplement classroom curriculum.
We offer workshops for teachers looking to put more emphasis on food and agriculture or develop more place-based and experiential curricula. Our education staff brings years of experience in curriculum design in these areas.
Contact our Education Office to find out how our education programs can be modified to meet your individual classroom needs or how we can help to address academic standards.
