Farmhand Adventure


About Farmhand Adventure Program

Grades 1 - 5 

This program provides a sample of ice cream and 2 take home crafts for each student. 

 During your visit, students will try their hand at homesteading a claim of their own and experience the rich legacy of Oak Glen’s farming history. Visit with our master groundsman who will put your hands to good use on the farm. Help in churning ice cream for a mid day treat!

There’s lots of work on the farm and we’ll need your help to get it all done.
