Family Programs

Fernbrook Farms Environmental Education Center’s mission includes ‘engaging all young people’ however, we still enjoy getting all ages to the farm and that includes all family members. Each year we offer a few tried and true annual family programs as well as running a number of fundraisers that allow all family members to engage with the farm. Maybe you want to join us to learn how to shear a sheep and process wool yarn or your family is interested in a casual campfire in the woods with games, stories and marshmallows followed by a wagon ride; we have a wide variety!

Annual event dates and times are listed on our calendar of events. Call 609-298-4028 with any questions.

Annual family programs include:

  • Sheep Shearing Demonstration
  • Family Campfire and Wagon Ride
