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:

FUN & EDUCATIONAL

Field Trips

At Alegre Farm we provide 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, old fashioned 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!
