Sharing farm life with children for two generations.

Summer 2019

Registration, Fees, and Calendar

Is the Farm a Match for Your Child?

The Country School Farm gives children a realistic view of farmstead living. While some aspects are modern, other aspects reflect a 19th century  family farm. Please explain to your child that this is not a camp or school in the traditional sense, but the Barkers' family farm, their home. Visiting children become active participants in the day-to-day life of the farm and depart on Friday bearing long-lasting feelings of satisfaction. In aid of this outcome, visitors are encouraged to try their best to be good guests, willing participants, and follow the guidelines outlined in our Monday morning visitors' orientation meeting after arrival. To enroll:

  • Make sure your child takes part in the decision and really wants to attend.

  • Please note that the farm is not suitable for children with difficult personalities.

  • Your child's birthday should not fall during session of attendance.

How to Register:

  • Email us indicating your choice of session and, if possible, a second choice if spaces are limited, your child's name, age at the time of attendance, and gender. (Note: If you are considering enrolling a six year old, we recommend an older sibling attend the same session.)

  • We will respond indicating that your space is reserved and will be held for ten days while you mail an application and payment.  NOTE: All fees are refundable in full until March 31, 2019.

  • Add to your approved senders. Please email us if you have any questions.
