Friday Farm Work

On Fridays we travel one hour north of Dallas to Greenville to actively contribute to a working farm. Rather than completing token farm chores, our students attain valuable skills & provide valuable, necessary labor in return.

Students will actively contribute to the upkeep and running of the farm by learning & working in the following areas:

- bee keeping

- feeding & tending the pigs, chickens, turkeys, cows, and horses

- planting, tending, & harvesting the garden

- repairing & keeping up farm equipment

- milking the cows

- grooming & exercising the horses

- making yogurt, cheese, and butter

- canning & pickling the produce
