February Vacation

register-online-buttonCome out to Wolfe’s Neck Farm’s snowy wonderland for fun and enrichment this February Vacation! Spend three days exploring life on the farm in the winter and learning how animals adapt to the cold.

Each morning we’ll help our farmers with chores in the barn. The rest of the day we’ll focus on an animal in our barn and explore winter adaptations.

On Tuesday, we’ll interact with our dairy cows, Wednesday we’ll watch and learn as our veterinarian performs ultrasounds on our pregnant ewes, and on Thursday we’ll focus on our chickens! Additional activities will depend on the weather and what is happening on the farm, and could include:

  • Helping keep our livestock healthy and happy in the winter
  • Searching for signs of winter activity in the forest
  • Delving into amazing cold weather adaptations, like hibernation
  • Building bluebird boxes to support beneficial migrators
