Family Farm Camp

Join us at beautiful Zephyros Farm and Garden for a long weekend of farm immersion.  Our program is a great way to experience and learn about true farm life.  Get out of the hustle and bustle and settle into a lifestyle that works with the rhythms of the farm.

 We will spend time milking our goats, collecting eggs from our chickens, feeding our pigs and playing with all the farm critters.  We will work in the vegetable and flower farm, in our kitchen gardens, learning to care for the plants, and harvest the food we will eat.  We will be planting crops for the fall harvest, and working in greenhouses.  We will work together to create amazing farm fresh meals each day, make cheese and yogurt too.  All our activities are hands on and age appropriate.  Come spend time with you children as they discover the wonder of nature on our farm.

For adults we will have a separate optional curriculum based on growing in a greenhouse.  We will explore construction, materials, planting, and growing throughout the winter.  The focus will be on how to feed you family out of a small greenhouse all year long. 

We will also build in lots of free time to play with animals, read a book, join in with the farm crew to keep working, go wine tasting or swim in our pond.  We will be camping and eating all included fresh organic food from our farm.  There is a limited use of a shower.

The camp is for kids of all ages 4-17, 3 and under are welcome at no cost, but are the parents responsibility.  We will break up into age appropriate groups for the activities.  Sign up fast as there is a limit of spaces.
