We have a couple of spots available for the Farm School program starting in February. Call or email for more information.
Yes, it is time to start thinking about registering your child for summer camp. What better place for your child to have a great summer experience than Sunny Truth Farm. Our summer camp will be located at our new Chestnut Mountain property. With over 85 acres to explore, featuring springs, trails, meadows and forest, this will be an amazing location for camp. Here is our flyer for the camp and feel free to check out more details under the programs heading of our website. All of the week's themes and dates are located in the Summer Camp section. Here is the flyer.
Sometimes life comes at you fast. One day we were driving a road that my wife bikes regularly just so I could see the area and 10 days later we were making an offer on a larger than we ever imagined property with her brother. Well one month later we are the proud owners of 85+ acres of beautiful farm land that is only 10 minutes away from our current farm. There is a lot of work to be done, but also a lot of possibilities. We are calling this new land the Chestnut Mountain property, because as you can guess, Chestnut Mountain is the dominant feature. We have already started working with Madison County Soil and Water to create a management plan that includes fencing off all the spring runs and creating alternative watering sources for livestock. Our goal is to be good stewards of the land and keeping animals out of the water is the first step.
This summer we will be running our summer camp at the Chestnut Mountain property. There is so much more space to play, hike, and explore. Well enough words, here are some pictures of the new place.
The new season of Farm School has just started. We are in the process of getting ready for sugar season, hopefully a good Maple Syrup year. We have a lot of great activities planned as well as plenty of time for the children to explore and learn at their own pace. We are also excited that we have closed on the Chestnut Mountain property which will give us an 85+ acre site to run Farm School and Summer Camp. More details posted soon on the new location. Enjoy winter.
We ended the fall Farm School session with an ornament making activity. A nice way to end the year for the children. As one session ends we are already looking towards the next as the spring session of Farm School starts on January 8, 2018. You can see more information on the program and all of the dates on the Farm School page of this site. Here are some pictures from the ornament making.
