Field-to-Fork Day Camp for Kids

Focusing on future farmers with a four day Summer intensive

Monday, June 10, 2019 through Thursday, June 13, 2019

9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Ages 8-12

$450 per session

The main objective of this camp will be to provide local kids with a holistic picture of farm life in Virginia. This four day session will be offered to a group of 8-12 year old campers, and through a hands-on curriculum focusing on animal care, cheesemaking, and the culinary arts, will strive to provide a truly field-to-fork experience.

Gail Hobbs-Page and Eliza Leineweber Lathrop have developed an on-farm curriculum with emphasis on food as it relates to sustainability, science, and nature. Through guided activities such as animal care, cheesemaking, vegetable harvesting, foraging, and cooking with ingredients from the farm, the objective will be to teach campers invaluable skills while also encouraging mindfulness and giving each person a sense of their role in the local food system.

Snacks & lunch will be provided each day. Transportation will need to be arranged by each parent.

DINNER AT THE GOAT LADY DAIRY

Each spring and fall GLD offers unique monthly “Dinner at the Dairy”. Your evening begins with hors d’oeuvres on the porch as guests arrive between 5:30 – 6:00. A tour of the farm begins at 6 PM with dinner to follow around 6:45. The evening concludes around 9:30 PM.

Guests enjoy a five course meal featuring cheese, herbs, vegetables and meats grown and made right here on our farm or other local farms. The evening is concluded with coffee or tea and our famous Chocolate Goat Cheese Truffles. Each course is set ahead of time based upon what is fresh and best that week.

The meals are served in the rustic atmosphere of a unique dairy barn constructed with pine, oak, poplar and cedar harvested off the farm. Its design is passive solar and post and beam construction finished with reclaimed 100-year-old barn oak.
