The Summer Program
Get out of the city and grow, learn and thrive at our educational Farm Program for children. Enjoy one of six weeks of The Summer Program with hands-on, educational activities with chickens, geese, goats, rabbits, pig, cow, horses and ponies, and cats and dogs too! Learn the care and maintenance of each of the farm animals and get active with gardening, game time and learn to ride a horse. Academics are important; the entire program is taught by an experienced, Oregon State Certified Teacher. Please bring a sack lunch.
Session 5, 8/5, Ruffian week
Each Summer Program is similar but this week we will focus on one of our Miniature Sicilian Donkeys, Ruffian Ragusa or “Ruffy.” This breed originated in Sicily. Unlike many other miniature breeds, the miniature donkey is not a bred-down version of a larger donkey. Their small size is natural.
