What we're all about...

For 6 to 13 year olds who like the idea of living on a real family farm. Children come away with a sparkle in their eyes that reflect both the satisfaction and fun of farm life. Participants live the meaning of the agricultural revolution and come away knowing what makes civilization possible. As Montessori teachers, the Barkers have designed the farm so that children have access to its very essence. Animal lovers do well as do children who are comfortable with mixed ages. The 42 acre farm is located in the neighborhood of the world's largest settlement of Amish people, although the Barkers are not Amish themselves and the experience has no religious affiliation. The smaller, more comprehensible scale of life in this neighborhood is perfect. Things are just the right size. The consistency yet variety in the experience brings children back year after year. Fun is basic to life on a farm but satisfaction is the lingering result.
