Jacob's Ladder Farm




What's It Like To Live in a Harmonious World Where:

Pets Do Our Chores

Best for ages 5 & up
Nature provides us with animals to help us with our yard- and farm-work.  Sheep are our lawn mowers; goats, our weed whackers. Ducks mow around young trees; geese feast on orchard weeds and guard ducks and hens from foxes.  Guinea fowl eat bugs--including the deer ticks that cause Lyme disease--but not produce!  Guinea fowl and peacocks keep our vineyard nearly Japanese-beetle-free.  Donkeys stamp shut woodchuck holes and can protect sheep from dog attacks.  Chickens clean our crock pots and turn our compost piles looking for worms.  Meet our furry, feathery maintenance crew and learn how each species has its own special talents at keeping plant and bug life, as well as predators, in check. 

Length:   45 minutes for each group of 20 or fewer children and adults. 

Options:   farm tour if available, travelling show, live show plus slides

Cost:  $5/person; one teacher per group free; adults who have done this program before are free; $350 minimum (you may be able to be piggy-backed before or after another group for a smaller minimum). Or $400/3-4 hours for as many participants as we can accomodate in a quicker version requiring a great deal of active participation from you and your staff.  $1/mile travelling fee.
