What The Farm Kids Camp is a summer, week-long full-day program for children ages 5-12 years old. Campers will work with our experienced farm staff to learn about sustainable agricultural practices, such as caring for our farm animals, collecting eggs, turning compost, planting, weeding, irrigating, harvesting, studying bees and pollinators, and making homemade foods. What The Farm is all about fostering a child’s creativity, natural curiosity, and appreciation for the outdoors… oh, and lots of ORGANIC fun!

My name is Kelly, and Lord help me, I am now a farmer.
My husband, Chris, and I started this journey in 2018 with our three kids McKenzie, Sophie, and Jack. I never dreamed of owning land and livestock in rural Virginia. Five years ago, you could have never convinced me that I would grow our own food and teach our kids from our farm one day.
So here I am with a sheep named Wilson who swims in my pool, and a chicken named Blanche who likes to keep me company on the back porch.
We’re focusing on the health and vitality of the land through regenerative farming, and our mission is simple: serve the SOIL, serve the ANIMALS, and serve the COMMUNITY.
We believe you should know where your food comes from and the farming practices used to produce it.
