FRT’s youth and education program teaches young adults (ages 14-20) humane farming practices, animal husbandry and urban homesteading. Our young volunteers get hands on working with our animals including horses, cows, goats, sheep, pigs, chickens, ducks, dogs and many other farm animals. Our farm is a no judgement, fun, safe atmosphere where they can be themselves, make new friends and learn many new things.
For 2024 We are planning on building an offgrid camp for our young volunteers to stay overnights, weekends, time off from school and summer vacations. If you’d like to donate building supplies or gift cards to lowes or home depot please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
The camp will have an outdoor kitchen, bunkhouse and bathroom facility with shower for our visitors, volunteers and campers. We hope to also use this space to allow our volunteers to raise chickens, rabbits, garden and possibly a greenhouse. It will be right next to the goat pasture and we may move the milking parlor to this new camp to allow our youth to partake in goat milking, processing and goat milk soap making as future classes. We will also use this space to host classes, bbqs, get togethers and meetings.
Amenities I’d like to add is a 12v diesel heater for the bunkhouse,propane water heater for hot water, Solar panels and Deep cycle batteries for power for lights/accessories/heater and 12v rv water pump to pump water out of our water tanks.
