FARM The Farm All Farm classes are held at The Farm, 600 N. Sherwood, unless otherwise noted. Adopt an Animal Anyone can adopt an animal at The Farm and become its “parent”. As an adoptive parent, you are helping to provide for the food and care of “your” animal. Of course, your adopted animal stays at The Farm where it is cared for by farm staff. (Note: for all practical purposes, some of the animals are sold when they reach maturity.) It’s easy to adopt! Choose your favorite farm animal and adopt it for a year by making a tax-deductible donation. A farm “parent” receives an adoption certificate, his/her name listed at The Farm, and a poster as a “thank you”, because we do appreciate your support. Birthday Parties Celebrate your child’s birthday with a farm flair! Meeting the animals, riding pony (April – October) or going on a hayride create a very unique party for your 3 to 9 year old. Call The Farm or stop by during open hours to reserve your date. A minimum charge is due at time of reservation. Your hostess will take care of all the details to ensure a stress-free day for you. Party package includes pony ride or hayride, lemonade, table settings, a bandana for each child, and of course a visit with the animals. For more information, contact The Farm at 970.221.6665 or visit us online at The Farm Store Looking for a unique farm-related gift? The Farm Store is the place to shop. We are stocked with farm toys, puzzles, T-shirts, and novelties. Great place for holiday gift buying. Open during open hours of The Farm. The Farm Museum Take a walk through yesteryear’s farm era. Displays depict farming from the turn of the century to the early 1930’s. Guess what the “mystery tool” is and how it was used. Then test your “farm strength” by lifting a bale of hay with and without the aid of a pulley system. Pony Club Calling all pony lovers! Join us in Pony Club where you will get exclusive access to the pony gang during special Pony Club hours. You will be on an email list to keep you informed about the ponies and upcoming activities. A monthly fee of $15 is charged with additional fees for some activities. All the ponies will be back to The Farm in March. Pony Club will begin in April! To be in Pony Club you must have completed at least one of The Farm’s Pony Camps or Horsemanship classes and be at least 8 years old. Call The Farm for more details 970.221.6665. After School Farmers Experience life on a farm by participating in farm activities such as milking the cow, taking a hayride, feeding the animals and some surprises too!
