Did you say Nature Deficit Disorder? Not here, we say! Here at FarmWise, the children get their hands right in the dirt. They get their fingers on the teats of the cow and have a go at making all their food from scratch for themselves.
Yes, some people think learning is sitting still and hearing about things. We here at Farmwise know otherwise. CHILDREN LIKE TO DO EVERYTHING THEMSELVES!
The cookie or tortilla you baked yourself is tasty, to say the least! The best one you ever had, in fact. Part of it is that you are really tired and hungry when coming in from the outside...... The farm is so,so much work! It never ends. It always is something that needs desperately doing. The apricots ripened and we have to can them. The tree fell down in the storm and has to be dragged away out of the road. The sheep got through the fence and ate all the lettuce! Oh my! The hay comes in on the hay wagons and needs to be unloaded...
We welcome you to our little homestead for a sample of what life would mean if we were to feed ourselves from a small plot of land here in the Midwest.
You can rent a place for your family in Lake Geneva for the week or week-end and the kids can come here during the day. We're only 10 min. away.a
