Flanders Farm School

Flanders invites parents and their children to join us for a fun farm program being held on select Fridays and Saturdays this Fall. Everyone will love Flanders Farm School where kids can be “a farmer for the day” visiting and helping feed the animals that call the Flanders’ North Barn home in a small group setting. Along the way children will learn amazing facts about the different animals. Attendees will listen to a S.O.I.L. lesson to learn how farmers care for the soil and then complete a winter rye planting, which your child will take home and watch grow! This is a unique opportunity for all children to experience and learn about farming close up.
