Little Way Farmers Immersion Experience

April 20 @ 10:00 am

We are excited to welcome you to the Little Way Farmers Immersion Experience for children and young adults ages 4 – 16.

As more families become interested in homesteading and small-scale farming, it is important that there be places to go to learn the traditional skills associated with agrarian living. Knowing this first hand, we are excited to welcome you to Little Way Farm and Homestead to experience farm living.
