This is a great place to visit for all ages. An historic farmhouse on the edge of an actual working farm. Plus they offer both indoor and outdoor exhibits that give hands on opportunities to learn about sustainability and the environment. Fun classes for all ages as well such as beer and bread making, composting and international stewardship efforts.
