Upcoming Programs and Events

Little Farmhands Summer Program

Register today, all are welcome!

Weeks of July 23, July 30, and August 6 - Welcome to Lachat Town Farms Little Farmhands Summer Program for the summer of 2018! Weekly themes inspire young adventurers as they learn and play in our field and on the farm! Each session gives children the opportunity to simply “be a kid” while exploring the marvels of nature and making friends. Children will become a gardener, explorer, artist, beekeeper and chef! Connecting to nature through outdoor play and hands-on experience is the heart of our program. The nature of our program is cooperative, rather than competitive: the games we play, the way we (campers, staff, administration) interact with one another, and the way we treat the earth.

Cost: $300 per Child
