Our FIY series teaches families and kids homesteading and cooking skills that can easily be done at home!

Throughout the year we’ll have opportunities to work with animals, cook in our kitchens, grow things to take home and more. Limited enrollment ensures that everyone gets hands-on chances to participate. Program location will be emailed to participants the week before the event. Recommended for children ages 5 and up, unless otherwise noted.
