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
