GREENHOUSE

Our greenhouse will be operating under a more relaxed summer schedule:

 

Mornings you’ll most likely find us in and around the barnyard doing farm chores or conducting tours. In the afternoons, we may be out in the field. A self-serve cash box will be set up in the greenhouse with contact info for anyone with questions.

 

SUMMER EDUCATIONAL TOURS

Summer camp and group tours are available until August 18th. Register online or call (410)489-2572 for more information!

 

SECOND SATURDAY FARMER

Saturday, August 12 from 9 til 11 am: Learn what it takes to be a farmer! It is a fun 2 hours of animal feeding and farm chores, learning planting techniques and a scavenger hunt through the barnyard and farm museum to find old tools and heritage farm equipment. Plus a hayride to Cattail Creek! Check out our Open House page for more information and how to register.

 

OUR  OPEN HOUSE EVENTS IN JULY & AUGUST:

Friday, July 28th – Ponds, Puddles & Creeks:  If you or your children have never walked through a creek on a hot summer day you may want to take this opportunity to join us. It is an experience that will bring you closer to nature & give you a wonderful sense of calmness! 

Your guide will bring you down by hayride to the Cattail Creek. Make sure to wear old tennis shoes or water shoes as we go into the creek to catch a variety of critters that live there. (Please no flip flops as the often end up floating downstream!) After spending some time catching the critters, we will take time to identify what we have found and learn about their habitats and life cycles. After releasing the critters back to the creek we head back to the barnyard to feed the farm animals. Tour time: 10:30 am – Noon. Cost $8.00/child Adults are free! Registration is required on or before July 27th. Details are on our website.
