The farm is bustling in summer and there is so much to do! Dig into at summer fun at Appleton Farms and become a farmer for the afternoon! Kids will learn to grow and eat farm fresh food through digging in and getting their hands dirty in the Learning Garden. Projects will include watering, weeding, and harvesting. Kids will make their own take-home item each week, such as their own small herb garden or a farm-fresh salad. Young gardeners 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. 

This drop-off program is designed for children ages 7-11. Pre-registration is required and parents/guardians are required to complete a drop-off form before children attend this program.

This program is a great alternative to our Summer Camp program for families looking for smaller group options or not able to attend a full week of camp. 

Summer Program Dates:

4-6pm Thursday July 30, and or Thursday August 27

Choose the days that work for your family or both dates!
