Childrens' Farmer Market

Childrens' Farmer Market

  • The Farm and Food Education Center, is a small farm featuring indoor and outdoor classrooms including a certified commercial kitchen. The Center specializes in offering hands-on trainings that provide beginning and existing farmers and growers with planning and decision making tools to produce and develop sustainable agricultural systems that suit their needs. The Center includes ongoing garden and livestock demonstrations and is equipped with a commercial kitchen in which food producers can learn about safe food processing and begin their entrepreneurial venture. Check our calendar of events for upcoming opportunities.

  • Farm Day Camp is a blast! Kids from ages 4 to 10 spend time at the farm playing and learning about where their food comes from. Weeks are geared for specific age groups giving them an opportunity to experience farm chores and learn about their own habitat.  Younger children focus on gardening and caring for animals and older campers learn more about natural resources through off farm experiences.

  • Farm Field Trips are specially customized for elementary school teachers and home-school parents. We assist in the preparation of hands on experiences that supplement the TN common core curriculum for science, biology and math.

  • Farm & Food Teen Training Program for the last decade has successfully invited local teens to develop their growing and cooking skills and have a creative hand in starting or adding to a farm or food business venture.  This  4-year experience assists economically challenged teens learn valuable skills that will help them pursue further education in agriculture or the culinary arts and food processing industry.

  • Children's Farmers Market teaches elementary school children about farmers' markets: where they are and how they work!  Children use monopoly money to make purchasing decisions to buy real produce that they take home to their families.  A seasonal vegetable or fruit is featured at each market.
