Not finding exactly what you’re looking for in the school or scout program pages? Maybe you’re hoping to bring an adult or special needs group? The Primrose farmers can create a custom program just for you! Let us know how many people you’re bringing, what your goals are for the trip, and what your budget is and we’ll put together a one-of-a-kind experience.
Most of our custom classes pull elements from our standard school, scout or Animal Adventure programs. Elements can include but are not limited to:
Animal Tour – 45 to 60 minutes
Meet the chickens, sheep, pigs, horses and cows that call Primrose home.
Chicken & Egg – 30 minutes
See, hear and touch the Columbian Wyandotte chickens and help gather farm fresh eggs straight from the nest.
Hands-On Milking – 30 to 45 minutes
Spend your morning cozying up with the Primrose cows! Meet our lovely ladies and discover what goes into dairying – the breeding, raising and milking of dairy animals. Then get up close and personal with one of our ‘fresh’ cows and try your hand at milking. Offered between 8:30am-10:00am only.
Feed the Animals – 30 to 45 minutes
Please feed the animals! It’s not often that you’ll hear this said to visitors at a farm. Get a unique behind the scenes opportunity to help care for the farm’s residents. Interact with the various livestock and discover how their specialized diets vary throughout the year.
Hold Your Horses – 30 minutes
Crazy about horses? Here’s your chance to mingle with some gentle giants – the Primrose Farm Belgian draft horses. Explore basic grooming techniques and learn about equine care practices of today and yesterday.
Kids Chores – Varies By Activity
Try your hand at cutting & stacking firewood, pumping water, scrubbing laundry, churning butter, baking biscuits or mixing feed.
Custom classes are priced based on number of attendees, elements requested, supplies required and staff time required. For more details or to schedule your program, call 630-513-4374.
