In the fall of 2013, we launched an amazing partnership with the Schoolhouse Learning Center, located in South Burlington, right around the corner from the farm. We started a program called, "Farm, Forest, and Food". This three tiered program engages the kids every Tuesday where they either are at the farm doing projects like harvesting (and eating a lot of) kale and spinach, or planting seeds, or they are exploring the woods playing "Eagle Eye" and tracking animals in the snow and mud, or they are back at school cooking a meal made with farm fresh ingredients that they then serve to the rest of the school that day.

I am thrilled to have kids getting more deeply engaged at the farm. A farm is where I first truly experienced hard work, problem solving, appreciation for healthy food, and where I felt connected to my community. It is so exciting to have the Schoolhouse kids here and learning and experiencing!

We have loads of new baby cows. 16 Mamas are due this spring, and as of April 10, we have had 11 so far. All have been healthy and vibrant. They always amaze me as to how quickly they are up and running around the barn yard. It is their mamas who are much more tense and nervous! These mama cows are great mamas, and we love that our cows get to be mamas! These babies will be suckling from their mother for over 6 months through the grazing season before they are weaned.

Now, we are just anxiously awaiting the grazing season to start. We are hoping to begin grazing in 2-3 weeks, we are hoping to not run out of hay before then! With the extended winter, it seems unlikely grazing will start on time, but the weather has surprised us many times before! Just waiting for that frost to move out of the ground...

Mon-Fri 8am-6pm
