Observation Hive at Ag Day

Sometimes Ettamarie takes the observation hive
to schools or other events. You can see it at the
farm.

This is the observation hive with a close up of
one of the bees. The bees fly out through a pipe
in the wall.

Our bees pollinate squash and
other fruits and vegetables we grow.

Bees are important for pollinating.
Peterson's barn
When groups arrive, they meet here in front of our
big barn to learn how to make the trip a fun and safe
learning experience.
Sebastopol goose
Come and throw bread to the goose!

We have lots of chickens but right now no ducks.


This is Oso. He was born on the farm in November 2006.
He and our other dog love children.
