Read, Learn, Grow

Get the kids out of the house this summer for a fun time on the farm! Kids who participate in our Read, Learn, Grow program will:

  • Enjoy story time each Wednesday morning at 9:00 or 10:30 to read a book about farming, fruits, veggies, insects, and more,
  • Immerse themselves on the farm, reading the stories at different spots around the farm pertinent to the book of the week,
  • Participate in an activity and take home something special each week – from hand-picked fruit to a hand-made craft!
  • Learn not only about agriculture, but also about how fun it is to read!

Choose from two times: 9:00am OR 10:30am

Other things you should know:

  • This activity is recommended for children, ages 3-8. If you have younger children, you’re welcome to bring them along, but we ask that you be prepared to remove them from the reading and activity areas if they become a distraction.
  • We request that all parents remain on site during the activity.
  • Read, Learn, Grow will last for about an hour each Wednesday morning.
  • Each week they will take home a special treat relating to the subject of the book they read!
  • Read, Learn, Grow will take place at, or depart from, the retail market each week, and will begin promptly at the designated time, so please arrive a few minutes early to check in. Folks arriving late will not be permitted to join the group, so as to not interrupt the program.
  • The cost is $7/first child/session, $6/additional child/session. Registration is not required. The event goes on rain or shine, so please dress appropriately.
