Our animals are seen annually by Fenton River Vet here in Tolland. All of the animals receive annual vaccinations and are checked over daily for any sign of injury or illness prior to their interaction with the children. Majority of the animals have been raised on our farm since birth, therefore, making excellent pets for education!
When the children arrive at the farm, they're offered a handful of unique opportunities. We start off our visit with a short lesson with the topic of the week, which could be anything from learning about different breeds to the purpose of each animal (milk, meat, pets) - these lessons become popular talks at your dinner table. The kids get to then interact directly with the animals by petting, brushing and observing! There is much sensory involvement during this time. After our animal interaction, we teach the children how to clean out the animal's stalls, wash their buckets, collect eggs, sweep, put new shavings down and more! It's a very hands on experience and the children absolutely love it!
