Life on the Farm
When a personal visit to the farm is not possible, these resources, provided by Plowshares Farm Center for Education and Spirituality, will help children explore the connection between farms and food. Students can meet a cow, visit the hen house, or encounter a small flock of sheep. They can witness a hand-milking demonstration, butter-making, egg-collecting, and other fun and educational farm activities.
Enjoy! And let us know what else you’d like to see!

Miracles happen every day on Plowshares Farm. Mabel gave birth to a calf a few weeks ago and we recorded the birth process and the calf’s first steps. Join us in witnessing this sacred moment.
Introducing Farmer Bob’s best buddy, Jack, our Farm dog. If you’ve been to Plowshares, you’ve likely been greeted by Jack. If you haven’t been here yet, here’s your chance to meet him.
Our gardens are doing great and we’re beginning to enjoy fresh vegetables. In this video, we focus on one of our favorite things to grow – green beans.
Farmer Bob met his old friend, Esmerelda, the snake, in the Hen House. He tells us about her and then releases her in the woods.
Farmer Bob got a call from the post office that he had a special delivery. You’ll never guess what it was!
