Educational Programs at East Hill Farm
East Hill Farm Educational Mission:
To provide a hands on educational experience which incorporates the theoretical
and practical applications of farm related tasks. To provide an awareness and
appreciation of the importance of agriculture to our individual existence and global sustainability.
You will find many educational opportunities at East Hill Farm.
Join the East Hill Farm staff and naturalists for a 3 day Farm School Program where students will play an integral role in running our farm. On our 150 acres, we raise heritage breed cows, goats, and pigs along with horses, sheep, chickens and other farm animals. Through our school program, students will help us run the farm from milking the cows to fixing fences to helping manage the fields and surrounding woodlands. By caring for the animals and gaining a stronger appreciation for environmental stewardship, the farm will begin to feel like a home away from home.
Opportunities abound for homeschool families to experience life on the farm. Join us for a 2 to 4 night stay for Farm School students (ages 10-17) and their families. Farm School students will participate in farm work and workshops while their families enjoy special time together on the farm. Homeschool groups, call to set up your week on the farm!
