Upcoming Events

Sept. 21-Oct. 26 Fall Farm Hands

Farm Hands is the premier youth program at Aldermere Farm where youth ages 10-18 work with the young Belted Galloway calves learning to halter train, groom, and lead them. This provides a community service to the Farm because it allows the calves to get use to being around people, and to be well tempered and manageable. Participants also learn about important agricultural, conservation, and environmental issues as well as skills such as team work, trust, and patience. Our fall session will be held on Monday afternoons beginning September 21 from 3:30-5:00pm and will run for six weeks. For more information, contact our office at 236-2739 or jlucas@mcht.org. Sessions are limited to 8 participants.
