Farmer for a Day

Life has options…and so do you!

First, Old McDonald’s Farm, Inc. is a nonprofit, children’s program providing hands-on, enriching, educational opportunities for children and their families so you can feel good about your funds helping us help children. Please call OMF to make reservations 503/695-3316 or you can email us at omf@oldmcdonaldsfarm.org.

Now you can learn the feeding, health and housing needs of all our “teaching tools,” the farm animals while you immerse yourselves in the sights and sounds of the farm program and enjoy nature also on our beautiful, 68-acre farm.

You and your family/friends may join us as our guests in several ways and enjoy a continental breakfast plus the two-hour Morning Chores package the next morning where you will meet, feed and learn all about the farm animals.

  • You can stay indoors in our fully furnished Horse/Cow Barn Apartment (sleeps three) with the Bathhouse and a shower in our antique claw-foot tub;
  • You can stay in our fully furnished Farm Cottage (sleeps two) with Outhouse or the Loo;
  • Or you can Camp out under the stars by the fire pit area. You will not hear your neighbor’s “boom box” at 2:00 in the morning, guaranteed. Bring your tents and set it up or just your sleeping bags and pads to enjoy the outdoors.

  1. A nice walk on our property or on our nature trail;
  2. Meet our farm animals, including our horses, cow, dogs, goats, sheep, geese, ducks, chickens, cats, pig, etc.;
