Our pioneer ancestors were creative and resourceful. They were self-reliant, which meant that they had to do nearly everything for themselves. They had to possess the skills of a carpenter, stonemason, harness maker, veterinarian, farmer, logger, butcher, tailor, cook, hunter, nurse and doctor to succeed. Children were an integral part of the family work team and shouldered a great deal of responsibility.

Our program gives children the hands-on feel of a pioneer child’s way of life. Sunrock Farm programs are a fun way to learn. They convey abstract concepts through concrete activities that engage all of a child’s senses. Children gain a deep appreciation for human ingenuity, the fruits of hard work and frugal living, the strength of community, and the spirit of adventure. This program is especially appropriate for children in grades 2-6 and can be adapted for mixed age groups and home school families.

The Friends of Sunrock Farm Scholarship Fund provides partial funding to those schools which qualify. Please feel free to contact us at (859) 781-5502 for more information.
