Coming this Spring and Summer:
This spring and summer we will have many new AG-tivities to watch out for on the farm. Come out to the farm and spend some time in the country, visit with our new farm yard friends, enjoy the children's playground,
play in our HUGE corn box and get some excersize on our straw bale jump!!! Come out for the morning, or stay for lunch and enjoy a fresh TF sausage on a bun. You can even enjoy it under the shade of our tent. And of course no trip to the farm would be complete without an ice cream cone!!! And of course we always have a large selection of delectable meats on offer!
Rhubarb, Strawberries and Asparagus
With all this beautiful weather on the horizon our fresh asparagus will be popping out of the ground, right alongside will be our beautiful rhubarb too. Later in the summer towards the end of June watch for the opening of our U-Pick Strawberry patch. Shortly we will be removing the blankets of straw that kept our strawberry plants warm all winter to allow the sun to shine on them, so they become the rich, beautiful, red berries we are all excited for. Watch our webpage, our Facebook page and Twitter for the opening of the patch as well as picking conditions.
Thatcher Farms is excited to announce that we have added a school tours program to our farm life. We offer children the opportunity to come and visit our working farm, to play, learn and grow with our exciting new program. Come and spend a morning or an afternoon at the Farm to discover the importance of farming in our community, to learn about animal husbandry and raising livestock, growing crops, the weather and of course the natural world around them. Visiting our farm allows children to experience the wonder planting, and growing food. Our programs are interactive activities that emphasize all 5 senses while learning through experience.
