What they say about us

The traditional farm skills and wildlife habitat lessons taught and demonstrated in a natural environment by the staff nurtures and stimulates involvement by the children beyond anything they might experience elsewhere. It’s just rewarding to be involved, though even in such a small way, when you can see the results first hand.

The past few years as volunteers at Prescott Farm, Janice and I have been enriched with the opportunity to introduce youngsters to a dairy goat while experiencing the wonder and curiosity of the children as many meet face to face with their first farm animal.

We’ve enjoyed helping during both Harvest and Winter public events almost as much as reveling in the excitement as our grandchildren share what they’ve learned and enjoyed most at the end of each day at ‘camp’ during the drive home.
