Community Programs

NCOF’s hands-on, farm-based programs offer countless opportunities for individuals and families to learn about agriculture and to explore our natural world.

All our programs are grounded in the seasons and fully utilize our real working farm as a welcoming place of learning, discovery, and wonder.

Important Notes! 

NEW in 2023:

We have changed over to a new registration software, Sawyer, for our 2023 educational programs. A few things to note:

Farm Members at the Crofter Level ($125/year) and up: if you have not yet set up your account in our new software, Sawyer, please follow the instructions below before you register your child/ren for programs.

Non-members and Farmer-level members ($50/year): No action is required. You can browse our programs below in the Semester and Camps/Events tabs.

Crofter Level+ Instructions:
  • Set up a Sawyer account here. (Est. time to complete = 2 minutes)
  • Once you have done this, please pause. Do not register for any programs yet, because you won’t be able to use the member promo code.
  • We need 1-2 business days to configure your membership in the software.
  • We will email you when your account is ready.

My son participated in the April Vacation program and absolutely LOVED it. He is five and I wasn’t sure how it was going to go, but he came home each day saying, “the Farm was AWESOME!’ with two thumbs up. He wants to return every day after his sister naps.”–SL, Parent

My son G. is LOVING the Wednesday in the Woods program. He comes home so excited about new things he’s learned and explored. I can’t tell you how much we rave about the program!”--MP, Parent
