This summer we at Fair Haven Farms have begun offering a new experience in Trumann, Arkansas, called Farm Camp. A two-day camp has been provided during each summer month and is open to all ages.
We have discovered that although we live in a rural area, residents are far removed from rural lifestyles, and this increases exponentially with every generation. Farm Camp is a way for our participants to reconnect to the farm, interact with and provide care to the many diverse species that call this place home, learn practical tips that they can apply at home, and create farm crafts that they can take home. Our campers have been from very diverse backgrounds, ranging from toddler to adult. The group size has doubled with many returning participants. We are glad to have been an exciting part of our campers' summer. They are still talking about what they discovered on the farm.
