Saturday mornings on the farm
Our fun Saturday mornings are a great time to experience the farm. We explore together what is happening as the seasons change. We hold baby chicks, watch the lambs, make butter, and chase the butterflies. Plus, there are always products to sample. This experience is fun for all ages and happens the fourth Saturday of the month from April thru September. The experience is always changing!
An Evening on the Farm
Come enjoy a meal, live music, and the opportunity to connect with the animals and land where your food is raised.
- 4-6 PM // Pet a chick or lamb, take a hayride through the pasture, relax under a shade tree and enjoy live music, climb the silo, play yard games like cornhole or ladder golf – just enjoy the farm!
- 5:30-6 PM // JakePure Meal: Beef or Chicken Tacos
- 6-8 PM // Stroll through the pasture lanes to see the animals, roast a s’more, listen to more live music, and simply enjoy the beauty of the farm in the evening.
The event is free and the meal is by donation. This is a great chance for anyone interested to visit and become a (free) Jako Farm Member. The store is open throughout the evening.
Hipcamp at the Farm!
We have a campsite set up next to the silo at the farm where you can either tent camp or park your RV. Enjoy the beauty and peace of the farm while having the convenience of water and electricity. This site is only booked through Hipcamp.
Stand Up For Soil
Every fall we throw a big party to celebrate the harvest season and fellowship with Jako friends and neighbors. We eat a great JakoPure meal, enjoy live music, a bonfire, and pasture walks. Stand Up For Soil is the theme, and each fall we focus on a different aspect of soil health. Last fall we watched the Farmers Footprint documentary, which is linked below. (It got rave reviews, it’s worth watching.) Stay tuned for details about Stand Up For Soil 2021!
Every other Friday morning throughout the summer, we gather under the big shade tree to read stories, sing songs and eat JakoPure snacks. It’s geared towards preschool thru early elementary, but you might find your older kids participating, too. Kids of all ages love it!
Home school learning tours
These tours are tailored to your group and what you’d like to learn or do. We try to experience everything that is happening in the season at hand! These experiences generally last 2-3 hours and include a JakoPure snack under the shade tree. Click below to create a learning tour that’s right for your group.
