I was talking to my neighbor the other day and she told me all about how her kids went to farm camp this summer. I was intrigued. Upon further discussion I learned that “farm camp” started three years ago at a local farm. They put out the call to all the kids in the area to come and learn about life on the farm. What this entails is teaching them how to milk cows, gather eggs, feed chickens, weed, harvest crops etc., etc., etc. I stood there with my mouth open thinking, this is the most brilliant thing I’ve ever heard of! These folks have figured out a way for people to pay them to help during the busiest time of the year. It got me to thinking. Once we hit The Homestead and we’re up to our ears in repairs, building, planting, animal care etc., I’m going to start “Pioneer Camp.” Come with your kids for a week or two and we’ll teach you all kinds of fabulous and uselful things. Heck, we’ll even feed you like kings. All you have to do is show up and work like the flames of hell are nipping at your heals. Whose in?
