Woodside Elementary Students Visit Homestead Animal Farm

Several busloads of students from Woodside Elementary School, a Sussex Hamilton School District school, visited the farm on May 21, 2010. They took a tour of the farm, met many of the animals, and went on a hay ride. They also learned about planting organic crops during a hands-on activity. The students had a lesson about eggs and the different kinds of chickens we have here on the farm then watched two short movies about farm animals  and chickens produced by Homestead Animal Farm.

"Everybody off. Let's get going!"

The kids learned about chickens and got to hold baby chicks.

As usual, Nellie is the center of attention. Another group arrives back from the hayride. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The hayride capped off the day, the students were singing and playing "I Spy" to see if they could find everything along the hayride that was on a poster on the hay wagon. Our dog Nellie supervised the whole tour. She is a big hit with the kids!

Information on school tours is available here.
