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.
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.
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!
"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 for class are "open enrollment". Buy your ticket and you automatically have a seat at any open class table. We will list class dates, days and times in May of 2022. Classes are held beginning approximately the third week of June through the end of July. When we are fortunate enough to have a second bloom, we reopen classes in August. Reservations are NOT made for specific days or times, rather bring your ticket to any listed class. We are often asked "what if 30 others show on the same date/time?". No worries folks!! It's a big field... there are plenty of chairs, tables and mountains of lavender. We accommodate EVERYONE! And this year, we have huge banquet tents ready so there will be no dates "rained out".
