Detailed Information

Appleton Farms offers a diverse range of learning opportunities for kids aged 4-15. Campers meet farm animals, enjoy garden fresh goodies, and play hide and seek in the sunflowers. During each week-long session, children explore farming through games, activities, harvesting, cooking, and free play.

Farm Camp provides safe opportunities for children to participate in a working farm. They help grow vegetables, experience the operations of a dairy farm, and learn in a teaching kitchen equipped for kids. The Camp also incorporates a STEM curriculum. Kids learn about soil science, habitat management, cheese making, and community supported agriculture.
