The Junior Farmer series is a hands-on event sponsored by Cornell Cooperative Extension’s 4-H Youth Development Program. Children ages 6 10 will have an opportunity to learn what life is like as a farmer, they will learn about livestock and farm animals, explore careers in agriculture, help groom horses, meet with veterinarians, collect eggs, and feed the pigs. The program will culminate with a hayride and Harvest Party.
Registrations will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis and participation is limited. The non-refundable fee is $ 65 for 4-H members and $ 85 for non-members. This event meets every Tuesday for 6 weeks from 4:30 to 6:00pm beginning on May 1st. Please note: a parent or guardian must accompany the child throughout the time at Tilly Foster Farm.
