On this special program designed especially for our young farm friends, we’ll enjoy calf close encounters, a cow story and costume, a tour of the milking barn to see our cows being milked and more! Learn why cows have big ears, how much milk they make and how we turn it into delicious cheese.

Bring your sharpest skills of observation and a bag to collect your treasures!
March is the time for sugaring in New England! Appleton keeps this very special tradition alive by tapping the farms beautiful maple trees and producing wood-fired, small batch syrup.
