The farm is an integral part of our school campus. The many animals that live on our farm offer companionship, provide food and fiber, and teach the children life skills. With science being such an important aspect of the curriculum at Nature’s Pathways and 2nd Nature Academy, the children are fortunate to have the opportunity to participate in hands-on activities that teach life cycles, fiber, animal adaptations, animal health, new life, nutrition, food chains, composting, and sustainability.
Our farm friends include horses, alpaca, sheep, goats, chickens, roosters, ducks, and rabbits. The children are able to interact with the animals, assist in cleaning stalls, help feed, gather eggs, milk goats, observe annual sheering, handle the fiber, and take horseback riding lessons.
