Pasture 42 will be a teaching farm, but currently we are focusing on production of farm goods. We aim to create programs similar to what we have done in Southern Oregon. Children came to our farm there to collect eggs, feed animals, harvest fruit, and cook up farm fresh meals. Every year we offered Spring and Fall school programs for class field trips. In addition, we had popular summer camps, both day and overnight.
All kids should be joyful witnesses to a sprouting seed planted with their own hands. They should also experience the responsibility that comes with caring for cows, pigs and poultry. We hope to aid children in learning how the grasslands and the cultivated fields work in concert to nourish each other as parts of a vital farm ecosystem. These are the learning opportunities that will be available at Pasture 42.
