The garden will be abundant with vegetables to harvest and sell, the pygmy goats will be caring for new babies and you’ll meet other animal residents . . . donkeys, sheep, goats, chickens and pigs! Join us for fun on the farm! Six weekly sessions will be offered.  Hours are 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. for ages 6 and older and 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. for ages 4-5. Before and after camp care is available. We also offer a “Farmers-in-Training” (FIT) program for ages 11 and older. New this year – have you been a F.I.T. camper before? Join us this year as a Counselor Aide!

  • Did you know each worker bee works her entire life, from 28 to 35 days only to make just one-twelfth of one teaspoon of honey!
  • Bees must fly 55,000 miles and visit 2 million flowers to make one pound of honey.
  • You can experience the exciting and intricate world of bees up close and personal in a controlled and protective environment if you sign up for our FIT program!

Let's check out the garden...

Don't forget to see the "new" barns which are full of wheat, straw and hay and other farming equipment.

We rely on many groups to make our crops and gardens possible. Perhaps some day you will want to volunteer at Salomon and be part of the gardening crew. We can always use volunteers.

While you are touring, be sure to notice the newest "barn" which is the Blacksmith shop. During special events the building is open for you to check out this exciting hobby.  Classes are also available.

Off to see the "old barn" which was built in 1871. Rent the old barn for your next  private event. Visit the old barn during one of our special events, come on a Wednesday to the Farmer's Market or enjoy it during camp.
