Kids on the Farm Events

Kids, learn about what is going on at the farm! Join us this summer at Saunders Brothers Farm Market every Tuesday from May 29th to August 14th at 10:30 and learn about all things farming. We will explore which plants like sun and shade, how to bake a pie using fresh fruit, why cows eat grass, and why we need bees for more than just honey. Papa Saunders will be joining us several times to teach us how to propagate boxwood and tell stories of days gone by. We’d love to share our passion for farming with your family.
