Classes & Ticket information 2022

This coming year we will offer many opportunities for group and private classes to experience the farm and the beauty of its surroundings.  This will include wreath-making classes (as it does annually), goat socialization opportunities, Princess Picnic opportunities, and our new "Children's Outdoor Art and Exploration" opportunities.  As you scroll down, you will find descriptions of each class and a link that will take you to the dates and times available for purchase. 

Princess Picnic & Goat Visit


This delightful one hour session is the perfect opportunity for Mommy & Me (or nana, mimi, aunti, dad, etc) with your little princess.  Upon arrival, you will be given a picnic basket with lavender lemonade and lavender sugar cookies to share with your princess(es).  You will be escorted to our beautifully landscaped private picnic area where you will spend half an hour enjoying your picnic and each Princess receives a halo of lavender (to keep) and her choice of a princess cape or tutu to wear while enjoying the picnic.  You and your Princess will then be escorted to the goat socialization paddock where you will spend your remaining half an hour playing, petting, walking or just hanging out with the Nigerian Dwarf herd.  

Children's Outdoor Art and Exploration

 

This season we will be holding weekly outdoor art and exploration classes for children.  It is our goal to enlighten while entertaining in an outdoor classroom environment.  Children will learn basic agriculture and the importance of it, farm to table experiences through planting their own seeds and tasting the fruits of their labor, learn basic propagation skills (with trees, bushes and flowers) and explore the farm environment from bugs on up to our fabulous goat herd.  Children will learn while exploring and have opportunities for art projects such as collecting items from nature to build their own fairy houses, bird houses, painting what they see in nature.  This class will evolve as we roll through the season, but each class opportunity will be constructive and fun!  It is our goal to educate little farm and nature warriors.  For those who have home-schoolers, if there is a particular unit in your study that you believe would be beneficial out here at the farm, do not hesitate to let us know.  We can schedule a private class opportunity around your studies and units!   Class descriptions listed below.  Selections on buy-now tab

Make your own lavender wreath


"Our classic "oldie but goodie".    Each year we set tables up in the lavender fields and offer the opportunity for folks to make their own wreath.  Yes, wreaths can be purchased, but to come with your friends, sit at a table mounded with freshly cut blossoms, crafting your very own wreath.... well, there's just something magical about this experience.  Folks come back year after year and it is one of our favorite events on the farm.   Tickets this year are for specific days and time slots and limited to 12 guests per class.  If you are not able to select the day and time you wish, it is sold out.  You may call the farm at 207-332-6502 and we can manually add you to the class of your choice.  If you have a private party you would like to have, please call the farm to schedule.  Wreath making classes to the public are ONLY in the month of July this year, as we have booked retreat days for wreath making all other times.

Snacks will be provided. We will sit under the canopy in the lavender fields, select and open the oysters, harvest and clean your pearl(s) and mount them, or just enjoy them.
