Free to the public / donations welcome.
Join Land’s Sake educators on the farm for weekly drop-in activities including stories, picking and planting in the Education Garden, exploring the chicken coop and more! This is a free program for young children and caregivers. Activities are geared for ages 2.5 through 7, but children of all ages are welcome to participate. Come for one activity or stay for the full two hours! A schedule will be posted near the parking lot at the beginning of each session. (Open Farmyard is weather-dependent and cancellations will be posted on our social media page.) This program is supported in part by a grant from the Weston Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency and is free for all, though we do accept donations. Preregistration is welcome but not required.

Private Farmyard Family Experience
Want more or less time or a different day to enjoy the experience, more control over your activities, or more people to be included? We are offering Private Family Farmyard experiences. Each is taught by one of our trained educators, and includes a variety of activities tailored to your group!
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Weston Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
Open Farmyard also benefited from a 2018 grant for garden supplies from the Wellesley Hills Junior Women's Club.
Thank you for making this program possible!
