Kids Reconnect with Nature at Good Pickin' Farm in Westford

September 8, 2021

At Good Pickin' Farm, we have experiential hands on activities and education for all ages.

Preschool Programs:

  • Mornings on the Farm (age 2-5) is a care-giver + child class for age 2-5 years that runs Monday to Friday at either 9:30 or 10:45 for an hour. Drop in for $12 per class or sign up for the whole session! Each day is something different around the farm - it could be planting in the garden, or reading a story about goats and going for a mini goat hike, or doing a bunny art craft in the bunny pen and playing with the bunnies! Wednesdays and Fridays at 9:30 are focused on the ponies on the farm and include a pony ride for each child!
  • Acres of Fun (age 2.5-5) is a "drop-off" program held outside all year round! Caregivers must stay on site but can work in our lounge (Wifi available) or socialize with other parents. Acres of Fun’s mission is to foster a love of nature and to guide children toward healthy relationships with themselves and others. The program runs Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, for an AM & PM class. Sign up for one 6-8 week session at a time for $35-45/day.

Elementary Programs:

  • The School House is our homeschool alternative; let us do the homeschooling for you! At the School House, children in grades K-5 will be in a one-room school house "micro-school" with nature & project-based learning taught by certified educators. 80% of the school day will be spent outdoors. School runs Monday - Friday 9am-3pm and follows the Westford Public Schools calendar. 
  • Fascination for Farming is our after school program. It's like summer farm camp all year long! Classes run from 3-5:30 pm Monday - Friday. Each day the children will get to snuggle with the animals and participate in farm chores, play in the natural playground and more! Sign up for one day at a time, or the whole session.

Weekend Fun on the Farm:

  • Come to Fall Farm Days for PYO pumpkins, hayrides, animals, apple cider and more!
  • The Harvest Fest will be on Sunday September 19th and include PYO pumpkins, Fall activities, live music and the Westford Remembers Cow Patty Palooza Fundraiser.
  • Visit the farm for a private, up close Barnyard Brush farm tour and meet the farm animals!  Mention Macaroni Kid and take 10% off!
  • Check out our other activities on our website!
