The Nature of Learning

At Alegre Farm, the Nature of Learning is at the core of our existence. We provide a unique hands-on environment for learners of all ages to connect with nature through a variety of experiences. Our farm offers a hands-on learning experience like no other. Fun for people of all ages, we are the perfect destination for your next educational field trip. Your students will visit a growing homestead with a food garden, laying hens, a Jersey cow, goats, ponies, miniature donkeys, chickens and more. In a world where everything is simplified to be produced fast and economical, traditional farming becomes a lost tradition. We show students where the food that they eat comes from. They won’t realize how much they are learning when they feed a cow, milk a goat, or dig in the worms!

Our Unique Stations:

Hop aboard our tractor-driven hayride for a tour around our 15-acre farm.
Dig for worms and learn about the importance of worm composting.
Learn to milk a goat, a truly unique experience!
Learn about our pesticide-free vegetable and flower gardens.
Come meet one of our ponies and groom it with lots of love.
Visit our petting zoo, our chickens, donkeys, goats, and sheep will be waiting for you!
