Farm Hands Youth Program

March 21, 2017 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

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 service to Aldermere Farm because it conditions the calves to being around people and helps prepare them for the show ring. Participants also learn about important agricultural, conservation, and environmental issues as well as skills such as team work, trust, and patience. This Farm Hands session is full, but please contact us to have your child added to the wait list. Youth on the "Wait List" are contacted before to the start of the next session and given priority. Please call 236-2739 or email; jalbury@mcht.org, for more information. There is no cost for the Farm Hands program.
