Students in the schoolhouse 3346 compr

We have many fun and engaging programs for all ages and interests! Some are seasonal, please note months of availability.

School Tours 

Spring and Fall

Available to school-age children from grades K-12. However, this tour can also be adapted to suit the needs of adult groups, civic organizations, and special needs audiences.

Winter Programs 

November through March

Things don’t slow down in winter at the farm! There are a wide variety of activities for your small-to-medium-sized groups to come and participate in hands-on learning opportunities.

Hands-on History Programs 

Hands-on History activities help provide a chance for a deeper exploration of some aspect of history.  Great for returning groups, scouts working towards merit badges, people interested in heritage crafts, and many others!

Outreach Programs

If you can’t make it to the farm, a portion of the farm can travel to you!  Although, we usually offer these programs in fall and winter when travel to Quiet Valley can be difficult.

Junior Volunteer Opportunities

Quiet Valley could always use a helping hand.  Through this summer program, we invite students ages 12-17  to help with a variety of tasks around the farm, including learning parts of the historic tour. There is a limited number of opportunities available.
