In order to comply with CDC and IDPH guidelines for safety, there are some modifications to our Junior Farmer’s program:

          • Face Coverings required for all non-vaccinated participants and chaperones while utilizing indoor spaces. 
          • Group sizes have been decreased
          • Class offerings have been decreased
          • Increased facility sanitation
          • Online registration and payment

Junior Farmers is a unique experience for children ages 3-12 (ages vary due to schedule) to experience and learn on a real working farm. Mr. Paul, our Youth Program Manager, expertly leads Junior Farmers though educational and fun, seasonal sessions, that all have a slightly different focus.


Junior Farmers sessions (excluding summer) meet one hour a week for the duration of the session. Classes are held multiple days a week so you can choose which one works best for you.


Summer Sessions of Junior Farmers meet Monday through Friday for one whole week.
