2017 Class Schedule

 

We’ve turned our one day classes into series classes that equal more fun and more learning! Each class can also be takes separately also if you can’t commit to the whole series. With all the weekend classes tent camping is included for free, so you can make a fun vacation out of it.

If you have a large family and would like a discounted rate, talk to me and we’d be happy to work something out. We’re also ALWAYS happy to barter, whether it’s for volunteer time, antiques for the museum or anything else you may have that we could use!

Payment is prefered in advance through paypal, check or cash.

While here you can have a chance to tour the village/museum and meet our farm animals!
