Summertime at VonThun Farms
Visiting the farm in the summer is a whole new adventure! Pick berries and peaches, take a horseback riding lesson, or sign the kids up for summer camp. Our Sunflower Trail has been a big hit with families and we’re hosting a Farm to Fork Dinner during the height of the sunflower season.
Have younger kids? Visit on Friday mornings for our Barnyard Buddies Program!
Thanks to everyone who attended our 2019 Summer Camp programs! We offered four weeks of camp: two weeks of Horse Camp (learn how to handle horses and ride!) and two weeks of Farm Camp (learn about our farm animals, farm life, and pick some crops). Campers, age 7 – 12, will took part in hands on activities, games, crafts, and more.
Check back in early 2020 for camp session dates and prices!
Nothing says summer like the beauty of a wide open field of sunflowers! Bring the kids, and plan to make the Sunflower Trail your summer photo op destination! The field is beautiful and the views are amazing. We’ve planted 6+ acres of sunflowers that will provide continuous blooms for more than a month. Weekend visitors will also get to enjoy a hayride and our activity area!
This fun program was designed for kids age 2-8 who have an interest in farm life and a love of outdoors. Each week has it’s own farm theme. We’ll start each session by learning about our topic through the reading of a book, we’ll feed the farm animals, and we’ll pick some berries to take home.
WHEN: Fridays, starting in early July
TIME: A 9:30am session is available each week in July & August. Each session lasts about one hour.
COST:$10 per session, per participating child (includes the program & berry picking)
Throughout the summer we hope to add some additional activities and events to our calendar. Although these events are currently in the planning stage, keep an eye on the event calendar of our homepage, as that’s where we’ll post the dates and the details as they become available.
