Despite the threats of stormy weather, Alegre Farm was able to hold Farm Adventure Day as the sun beamed through the clouds

We are thankful to those who could attend our Farm Adventure Day last Friday. We know many of you come from long distances to enjoy the day and have a slight glimpse of life on the farm through our educational stations.

Your support allows us to do what we do: Educate the community through field trips by creating an environment that allows everyone to be engaged.
