Please be aware that, to keep our animals and visitors safe, a new fencing system was installed. The white wire on the inside of the animal paddocks has a intermittent, low voltage current running through it to discourage the animals from destroying the fences - please interact with the animals at the black gates. Thank you!

Educational Garden

Learn about agriculture in the Maybury Farm Garden! 

 

Our garden is used for summer farm camp and educational tours. Campers and visitors can learn about a variety of vegetables, herbs, fruits and flowers hands on - touch, smell and taste the fresh bounty of a growing garden. In fact, the garden also provides fresh snacks for our campers. Perhaps we’ll inspire a young gardener at home!

Maybury’s farm garden is continually evolving - this season, we’ll have a new garden layout and utilize new horticulture practices including crop rotation, resting places, natural integrated pest management (IPM) along with insect sanctuary spaces. 

 

Be sure to check for fresh veggies, herbs and fresh cut flowers for sale in the general store during the growing season. And remember, nothing goes to waste in our garden - anything not used for education or enjoyed by our campers and visitors is a healthy and delicious treat for our animals!

StoryTime

Wednesdays & Thursdays 

June 16 - Sept. 30

Starts at 11am

Children will have fun while learning about a unique farm topic each week through stories, songs, and sensory play. Special animal guests may also visit us at the end of StoryTime. Maybury Farm develops our story times based on the Every Child Ready to Read program which is a research-based early  literacy program, from the American Library Association. The Every Child Ready to Read program encourages parents to interact with their children using the five practices of early literacy: singing, talking, reading, writing, and playing. These five practices develop the components of early literacy, including phonological awareness, vocabulary, print awareness, letter knowledge, and background knowledge, which prepare children to learn to read and write in school.

 

COST: Included with your $5 admission to the farm (kids under 2 are FREE)

AGE: All ages welcome!

DATES: Weekly from June 30 to September 30

LENGTH: 30 minutes

StoryTime takes place outdoors and so is weather dependent - please check for updates on Facebook in case of cancellation.

Plan A Party

Maybury Farm is a wonderful setting for your child's birthday party, family get-together, corporate gathering or any other group event. We offer various party/group event packages and also bonfire rental and rental of our covered pavilion.

 

At the farm, we offer various group admission packages along with separate fees for use of our bonfire, covered pavilion or, new this season, add our popular StoryTime to your party!

 

The wagon ride, included in the admission price, is pulled by our tractor along the milled trails through the forest and fields and then back to the farm. The wagon holds approximately 25-30 people, so larger groups need to allow time for multiple trips.
