Our Farm includes 2 functioning barns, several agricultural fields, animal stalls, and a chicken coop. We are growing in more ways than one this season! The DPF 4-H Farm provides traditional animal and gardening experiences for all, including caring for and learning to handle chickens, ducks, rabbits, goats – and more - while also exploring the many roles animals play in sustainable agriculture.
We are expanding our horizons and going organic this season, collaborating with various local institutions to design a more sustainable farm space.
How do you graze animals to cut down on mowing? Do guinea hens really eat ticks? Will free ranging a chicken flock in your orchard really reduce the need for pesticide? What’s the safest way to pick up a rabbit? These questions and more can be answered here at the farm.
