Learning on the Farm
Education is central to our approach to farming, and we strive to create space for people of all ages and stages to engage in immersive, meaningful experiences on our farm and the surrounding land.
Music For Sprouts strives to nourish our children, families and communities by exploring and expressing our connection to nature and to each other through music and movement. These classes are about exploration, and every sprouts style of interaction is different and ever changing. Some sprouts may be silent observers, while others might add their own spin to the activities! Classes are for children ages 0-5, and family participation is welcomed.
Camp Bread & Butter is a week-long journey through the world of farming, cooking, outdoor survival skills, crafts, archery, and epic group games guided by an incredibly talented and supportive farm and wilderness education team. We are located on a magical farm situated between the Green Mountains and the Adirondacks. At Camp Bread & Butter you'll have the chance engage hands-on on a real working farm in the most exciting time of the year! Camp Bread & Butter is for children ages X-X, and registration begins in February.
Village School invites kids to explore our farm and forests every Wednesday during the school year, all day long. During Village School, kids sink into the rhythm of farm life while exploring over 100 acres of forest, fields, pastures, savannahs, and marsh in Shelburne, VT. We welcome children ages seven to eleven.
The Schoolhouse Learning Center is a small non-profit secondary school and pre-school that is located just 1 mile from our farm. We partner together to bring students onto the farm to experience the connection between farming, the surrounding forest, pasture, and wetland ecosystems, and food.
As farmers with a background in teaching, we strive to make a place for people of all ages to continue to engage and learn on our farm. For older students and adults, this often takes place through our partnerships with outside programs, including the University of Vermont's Farmer Training Program.
