Sunflower Farm sits on 52 acres and has animals such as cows, goats, sheep, horses,a Llama, chickens, peacocks, cats, and a donkey. All children are required to do farm chores that they find meaningful. This could include animal care, gardening, helping with irrigation, cleaning or mucking a pen, or seasonal things such as harvesting sunflowers, or gathering pumpkins. There is also a forest just across our field that offers nothing more than trees, sky, and imagination.
Beginning in August, 2018, classes will be held on Mondays and Tuesdays. Sunflower Farm is located at 11150 Prospect Road, Longmont, CO 80504. We follow the St. Vrain school schedule and run for 31 weeks (August-May, closed the month of January).
