For the first time this year Homestead is offering Day Camp at the farm. On June 20, 22, or 24th your children ages 5 through 10 can particpate in all the down-on-the-farm activities including hayrides, learning about farming practices of today and yesteryear, having fun with the animals and learning about farm chores, participating in a scavenger hunt, crafts, exploration, and much more! These single day camps run from 9:00AM to 3:00PM each day. Space is limited so download and return the registration forms soon.

Our Homestead Animal Farm Journal
Be sure to stop in at the Pumpkin Barn when you visit our animals or come to try the corn maze. We sell pumpkins, gourds, squash, indian corn, corn bundles, various sizes of straw bales, maple syrup, and Homestead honey. We offer an I Spy Hayride around the farm where participants look for special objects displayed along the hayride trail and match them to a list of items posted in the hay wagon. And new for 2015, we have a children's play area (see the last four journal entries for more information).
Pumpkin Barn hours are the same as the maze hours.
In addition to the maze, hayride, and animal area, we've added a big play area opportunity for the kids for 2015. They can pose on the antique tractor, play the "musicial instrument" display, engineer magnetic tube systems on a huge white board, and romp in the giant corn box. Don't forget to buy your pumpkin and try some maple syrup and Homestead Honey.
