Comments about Horse Farm Camp:
Beth Thompson: Took my young teen daughter here for farm camp and she absolutely loved it. She got to try new things (milking a cow, baking bread) and revisit some old (riding a horse). She has continued to bake since then and is planning on experimenting with the bread recipe and creating her own. Should be a delicious experiment. Thank you, Whispering Hope Farm for giving her the confidence to try!
Catherine Ryan... Willa Anne loved farm camp last week. She learned so much as well as being "toughened up" a bit. She no longer freaks out if there is a frog in the pool but insists on getting to hold it and learn about its joints and feet. Never thought I'd see that!
Whispering Hope Farm Thank you so much for the comment. It made us smile. This is why we work so hard and do what we do to have an educational and interactive learning farm.
Thank you for the fun week you gave my daughter Ava! She really, really enjoyed it. Everyday she gave me updates on all the animals, and she loved riding the horses. So cute!
And that bread ... so delicious!! She gave me 1 bite, and then ate all the rest by the time we got back to Charlotte!! **By any chance can you share the recipe? **
We may see you again in August ... trying to work out our schedule.
Kathleen Pernak Zwally... Fantastic experience! Highly recommend!
