Jacob's Ladder Farm

Girl and Boy milking a goat Welcome to Jacob's Ladder Farm!  Our travelling educational farm brings you the Farm Experience close-up.  Kids learn best hands-on, so we do start-to-finish programs that allow kids the joy of insight into farm creatures, mastery of nature-based skills, and creativity through cottage-industry projects. 

In Sheep-to-Shawl: How Cloth Was Made, kids cut their own wool off a sheep; comb, dye, and spin wool; weave projects on their own small take-home loom; and operate the shuttle and harnesses on a 10-treadle floor loom set up just for kids!  In other programs, they milk a sheep or goat, then learn to make Kick-the-Can Ice Cream or Microwave Mozzarella.  Grinding grain for pizza-dough, metal-smithing, and candle-making for kids round out the hands-on experience.

Teacher-training programs are available upon request.

But don't expect to do all this in one day!  We take the time to teach each child as an individual and offer a plethora of fascinating background information during each high-quality session, so be sure to note the length of each program listed in the description.

Note: Most programs have a secular version and a Jewish/Biblical version that focuses on how each animal or skill appears in the Bible and subsequent Jewish study, practice, and literature.  If you want the secular version, click the "Be a Farm Kid for a Day!" button.  Otherwise, click the "Jewish & Biblical" button.
