Class Description

This class is both fun and informative. Students will learn about farming in the 1800’s and compare that with how it is done today. It is exciting that this year students will once again be able to visit Twelve Oaks Farms to work with horses and sheep as part of the class! They will actually learn grooming with Martha and one of our student friendly miniature horses, Satin.
They will also experience the life of a student in the 1800s by playing with games and toys that were a source of entertainment 120 years ago. Students learn the importance of the Bible verse, “Be though diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. Proverbs 27:23.

We learn to keep it natural, farm without pesticides, and attend to crops and animals in a kindly manner. Students learn how to use what is on hand to do what needs to be done. Student use the simple machines in class to learn how to make the best use of every tool.

In any class I teach, the central theme of my teaching will always be to “Create the vision and develop the passion.” from Wings of Eagles Consulting, used with written permission.
