Earlier this month, I posted about Chestnut Hill Farm’s programs and special events this winter. Today, I’m focusing a reminder on what is available for those looking to entertain their kids while school is out of session for the holidays.

(For info that includes programs in January and February, click here.)

December Break Junior Farmers (from TTOR website)Junior Farmers For A Day
For grades K-5

Weekdays, 9:0 – 11:00 am, December 27 – 29 (Note: 3 days have also been added for February break)

Hey kids! Dig into vacation at Chestnut Hill Farm and become a junior farmer for a day (or three)! You’ll help care for farm animals, learn to grow and eat farm fresh food, hike the trails, create natural crafts, and explore the farm from the eyes of its most important team member: the farmer!

Parents, your little farmers will come home with stories of adventure, a deeper understanding of where their food comes from, a sense of responsibility, and memories made with new friends (people and animals!).

Cost: $36/$45 per child per day

Grab your snow boots and get everyone outside to discover our elusive herd of nine wooden reindeer, found throughout the farm trails!

Storywalk (from CHF Facebook)StoryWalk on the Trails
All ages/family

Dawn-Dusk daily, year round (story swapped out occasionally)

Join us for our StoryWalk® on the farm! StoryWalk is an innovative and delightful way for children — and adults! — to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Conceived as a way to inspire parents, teachers, and caregivers to take young children outside for physical activity and to learn, StoryWalk helps build children’s interest in reading while encouraging healthy activity for everyone.

Laminated pages from a children’s book are attached to wooden stakes, which are installed along one of our farm’s trails. As you stroll down the trail, you’re directed to the next page in the story. What a lovely way to enjoy the farm!

Free – no registration required
