Story Time on the Farm
May 15th - October 30th 2019

  • Storytime is postponed until further notice. Thank you for your patience as we settle into our new facility

Due to the popularity of story-time on the farm, we will be hosting this event twice per week. Join us to read a story and tour the farm. This event takes place outside on the grass so we recommend bringing a blanket to sit on, sunscreen, bug spray, and allergy mediation if you have animal or seasonal allergies.

Story-time is held each Monday and Wednesday from 10-11am. Miss Kristin will be leading on Mondays. Miss Carol will be leading on Wednesdays.

Though this event is free, we rely heavily on donations to continue our mission. Contributions are appreciated to help us cover costs such as hay, grain, bedding, and veterinary care.

NOTE: NO story time on May 27th, July 3rd, or September 2nd.


COMING BACK - SPRING 2019 - STAY TUNED!
