2020 Farm Summer Camp

At Farm Camp, kids engage in hands-on learning about sustainable agriculture and the environment. Campers take care of livestock, tend our gardens, and make new friends.

Camp Goals:

  • Provide farm camp programs that are accessible to all children regardless of financial barriers.

  • Highlight the role farms play in providing our food and fiber.

  • Build relationships with campers and families to encourage lifelong learning beyond farm summer camp through family programs, and workshops.

  • Having fun educating kids about where their food comes from and how to manage it.

  • Instill the building skills to compost at home even with out having a farm.

Munchkins

June 29 - July 3

July 13 - July 17

We have prepared age appropriate activities to engage kids in a meaningful conversation about food and food systems. These activities will give kids opportunities to reflect on current food practices, to explore more sustainable ones, and to link their learning to relevant action.

Munchkins will learn how to plant seeds, paint garden signs, learn about lettuce planting, learn about different animals, feed the chickens and ducks, collect eggs, and watch chicks hatch. They will have the opportunity to pet baby lambs and give them a bath, as well as halter train them. Campers will be painting their own bird house, making farm crafts, playing farm games, and  learning science with farming! We will have one water day to play and wash sheep, and one day of an adventure off farm.

Here at Cracked An Egg Farm we raise 3 breeds of sheep, rare chickens and ducks, geese, and a LGD (livestock guardian dog). We will be adding pigs this spring. We are also hoping to get a few baby goats to had to this event. For inside pets we have 3 dachshund dogs.

Some age groups will be using hand tools to build their bird houses. Everyone will be supervised and helped when needed. We also will be painting, so an extra change of close just for that would be good.  

Please email, call, or text us if you have any questions, ideas, or concerns about summer camp!

We have a minimum # of kids per week, as well as a maximum #. 

Min is 6 and max is 15. We will have 2 leaders and 2-4 volunteers each week. All volunteers will require background checks.

About Us

Meet the owners!

Hi, I'm Meaghan the owner and operator here at Cracked An Egg Farm. My family started this farm back in 2004 in Barrington, NH. I have raise chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, guinea hens, rabbits, sheep, goats, cows, pigs, and a horse and donkey. I grew up in 4-H and FFA. I have won many awards with my livestock at shows and fairs. I have been raising 3 different breeds of sheep since 2006. In 2017-2019 I was the assistant manager for a pet care and (the manager) farm care company in NH. I got married and moved my farm up to VT in August of 2019. 

Hi, I’m Nick Audet and I’m Meaghan’s husband! I was born and raised in Brandon, VT and grew up working for my dad’s construction company as well as working on farms in the evenings. I joined the Brandon Fire Department at the age of 18, the US Army National Guard at 22, and married my lovely wife at 23. Now I do carpentry and handyman work on the side as well as help with the sheep, geese, ducks, and chickens at Cracked an Egg Farm. Whenever something needs to be built or something heavy needs to be moved, that’s my job. I love Ford trucks and working on four wheelers in my free time
