Barnyard Helpers

Get a unique, behind-the-scenes opportunity to help out at the Blandford Farm! Assist with livestock chores – feeding and watering all the animals that call the farm home. If time allows, head into the children’s garden and lend a hand with weeding and harvesting. All helpers take home a share of the harvest.

This program is intended for families including children aged 4-12. An adult chaperone is required to register and attend at this program.

Location: Meet at the Blandford Farm. PLEASE NOTE: This location DOES NOT have access to restrooms. Restrooms are available at the MJD Visitor’s Center on Blandford’s Main Campus, located 10-15 minutes walking distance. Please plan accordingly.

Please Note: This program will take place outdoors. In the case of inclement weather, this program will be canceled and participants will be notified of their refund options. All participants are required to wear masks for the duration of the program and will be expected to stay socially distanced as much as possible.
