Summer Programs

OMF’s Summer Programs will provide students with an enriching, educational opportunity while they enjoy a hands-on, fun farm experience. Get out of the city and onto our 68-acre, beautiful, educational farm site. Learn from 30+ farm animals such as chickens, ducks, rabbits, sheep, goats,
pig, horses, cow and our farm dog while you have fun. Highlights of this program are that children ride on a tractor, plant in the garden and learn to ride a horse. Transportation is available from the Lloyd Center area.
