About Us

Founded in 1997, under the name Screech Owl Farm School, we have relocated to Saxapahaw, NC and shortened our name.  Farm School is primarily a family home, and secondarily open at specific times throughout the year to offer farm-focused programs to the young at heart.

Farm School programs share with others the joy of knowing a place, the satisfaction of belonging there, and the confidence gained from living in rhythm and relationship with the land and creatures.  The joy of life takes root here: in being present to the gifts that surround us, and the quiet magic in the farm and woods nearby.

Year-round offerings focus on practical farm-life skills. Join us for canning, care of animals, soap-making, candle-making, simple games, campfire cooking, tanning, jelly-making, butter churning, cheese-making, and more. The context of all programs, beyond the “doing” is the enjoyment of building capacities, celebrating community, collaborating and connecting.

  1. What state and city are you located. I did not see it on your website. Also, if near by what is the cost of taking your programs such as: canning, caring for animals on the farm, candle making, soap making and cheese making.
