School Programs

Would you like to bring your class on a trip to 123 Farm? Highland Springs Resort and 123 Farm offer field trips for pre-K to 12th grade students. Once at the farm, students will have a chance to see and take part in a real working farm. Our instructors are employees that run the farm on a day to day basis and have a passion for educating the next generation about how commercial versus organic farming can affect the environment, eating healthy and  humane care of animals.

Chicken Encounter

Make the Farm-to-Table connection of where eggs come from and what a free range farm looks like versus a commercial chicken ranch. Discover that there are many varieties of chickens that lay many different colored eggs- even pink and green! See and hold newly hatched chicks or maybe even catch one hatching in our 123 Farm incubator. 2 hours

Currently we are not offering any day camp program options as we are focusing our efforts on our organic farm.

Meet the Sheep

Learn about the life cycle of a sheep on 123 Farm from birth to the dinner table. Understand what it means for an animal to be organic and why it matters. After meeting and feeding the sheep, students get the opportunity to process raw wool into a usable product and finally finish with a wool felt craft. 2 hours

Farm to Table Cooking Class

Our most exciting, hands-on day program. Students experience the start to finish process of honest food production. A visit to our free-range chicken coop culminates with egg picking right from underneath the hens. After hand washing, the class gathers together for a quick lesson on food ingredients and why it is important to read labels. We utilize our just-picked eggs in the cooking class, making food that is both healthy and tastes good. Each student will make their own lunch while the Grand Oak Steakhouse kitchen staff prepares a side dish to go along with our student made meal. The day finishes with a meal at our beautiful outdoor log tables, overlooking 123 Farm’s lavender fields (*weather permitting). 4.5 hours
