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!
This season we are offering four weeks of Summer 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 take part in hands on activities, games, crafts, and more.
Register before June 1 and save 10%!
Come share an evening with friends and family at our Summertime Farm to Fork Dinner on Saturday, August 17th at 5:30 p.m. Your chef for the evening is preparing an 8 – 10 course tasting menu that will showcase the variety of fruits and vegetables we grow on our farms along with our pasture-raised beef. Tickets includes a private farm tour, hayride, access to our Sunflower Trail and your meal.
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.
