Foxglove Farm is an extraordinary place for children. You will find a working hobby farm just beyond the children's play yard. We have a pony named Bud, Millie goats sheep, lots of chickens, turkeys, pet bunnies, a frog pond, a beautiful pasture, and a woodlands, where wild bunnies, squirrels, hawks, and deer frequent. Daily activities include the enjoyment and care of all our critters. We are nestled in a charming little farm vally. Our neighbors are wild geese, cows, and horses and lots of lovely old trees.
Foxglove Farm provides wholesome, organic, and locally grown meals. The children will participate in food preparation, enjoying the smells, and textures, and tastes of what is home grown and home made. We will have a children's garden, and occassionally the children will be able to pick fresh produce, fruit, and herbs. There are chickens on the farm and seasonl egg collecting, cooking, and eating them is part of the chicken raising fun. You can expect flowers and pieces of nature on the table and decorating our space, that reflect the changing seasons.
The childcare facility at Foxglove Farm is actually it's own separate space, complete with kitchen, bathroom, play rooms, reading/resting room, and office. Outside we have a safe, fenced, fabulous play yard. There are climbing structures, a playhouse, swings, a slide, a sand box, a worm box, and flower and herb gardens. Even in the play yard the children are close to nature and have the opportunity to touch and feel the earth with all it's smells, and colors, and texture. Outside time includes daily field trips to different parts of the farm. Imagine a morning spent collecting pollywogs and exploring the fascinating world of pond life.
