Introducing FarmEd, a division of Honeywood Farms.
The primary mission of our new, family-oriented community education center at Honeywood Farms will be to strengthen mutual relationships with the local community by providing a safe and vibrant environment for children (and adults) to learn about the importance of biodiverse agriculture, nutritious food, and healthy outdoor play and exercise. Our staff is striving to create a variety of educational and organized play and fitness programs where children can rediscover positive youth development experiences in the natural settings of our scenic farm. Join us to learn about farming, raising livestock, growing nutritious food, or just getting together to interact with Mother Nature and reconnect with friends on the playground. At Honeywood, we feel that especially in todays world of distancing restrictions on children and an excessive increase in computer screen time, a void has been created. Now more than ever, we feel it is vital to promote a healthy balance with our natural desire for experiencing the essential benefits of exercise and fresh air in the great outdoors. Children need to run, play, and to socialize with their peers. We are currently working to develop and schedule week-long youth farm camps and after school playground programs for registration availability in the spring and summer of 2021. Our on site cafe, farm store, and dining pavilion offer a place for parents to relax and enjoy a bite to eat or a beverage while the kids burn off some steam.
