Brood Farm to School
We are no experts. But, to farm is to learn. Through trial and a fair bit of error, we have learned a lot through our farming endeavors. And we love the opportunity to pass on to others what we have learned and our excitement about our farm.
We have enjoyed taking goat babies and chickens to various classrooms to entertain and educate the children. I especially love being able to take a little baby goat to a classroom and use photos to tell the children how we use her mother's milk to make all kinds of things on the farm. Then, once the kids have spoiled the little goat rotten with all of their affection, they get a bar of Brood Farm Goat Milk Soap to wash up with before going on with their school day.
One creative middle school science teacher invited us out to teach about the beneficial bacteria used in cheese making. What a pleasure it was to share with these eager learners!
As a former teacher, I relish the opportunity to teach the little ones anything at all farm related. If you have a topic in mind that you think your class or group would like to hear about, let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org)!
