★FARM STAY STARTED★

~Not a moment of life is wasted on a farm~

Mattison Farm Stay 2019 has started.
A little update between our sessions while we are back to Harrison, NY for a few days.

Our first group was from all different ages and backgrounds. It’s great to see them work hard together and get along so well.
Our focus on this program is to let them experience wonderful North-eastern American farms while we teach practical English,agriculture economy, environmental issues and American culture.

As each day went by, we saw changes in them.

They were able to see what was happening to take responsibilities independently, but still work together.
There are so many things we would like to tell you.
Since we’ll start another session on 7/31, we are focusing on preparation now.

We’ll be on the farm without internet for a while again, so we apologize if we can’t get in touch with you quickly.
The whole new 2019 farm stay experience will be updated in August!
Have a great summer everyone!

We’re excited to be starting our Farm Stay next Sunday.
Everything is all set. We’ve got the Kayaks, boat, and fishing poles ready to go! We’ve spoken to everyone involved and they are also excited to see us all.

Our groups will be heading to 3 working farms as well as Mattison Corner Farms.
1. Mattland Farms: Lodging and Morning chores on a daily basis.
2. Collins Farm: Cow milking experience
3. Alford Farm: Tour of the modern farm that has over 2000 cattle.

We will introduce our students to a wide variety of American Farm lifestyles including a visit to our Amish neighbor’s homestead. It’s going to be a fun-filled time packed full of activities and opportunities to learn and communicate using English. Please stay tuned for our updates.

Farm stay2018ももうすぐとなりました。5-6月と自宅の引越し、教室の引越しとバタつき牧場での最終チェックが遅れましたが、先週週末7/7-8はChrisと二人で牧場へカヤックや寝具カバーなどを運びに、そしてマティランド牧場との最後の打ち合わせをしに出かけてきました。

マティランド牧場で調達するお肉の注文、アーミッシュ一族との打ち合わせ、クリスの母や父とのアクティビティの計画。今年も充実しそうです。

そして今回はマティランド牧場にお世話になる以外に、マティソンの所有するもう一軒の親戚の牧場にもお邪魔する事になりました。
牧場の体験としては、今年は三軒の牧場を体験することになります。

1.マティランド牧場-個人畜産農家約60頭牛&40豚-親戚
<主にブタちゃんの管理のお手伝い>

2.コリンズ牧場-個人酪農家1000頭以上-親戚
<家族経営の乳牛牧場で乳しぼり体験>

3.アルフォード牧場-大規模酪農企業2000頭以上
<現代化された酪農内をガイド付きで見学>

とても楽しみです。2019年のファームステイにご興味のある方はこちらへメールでお問い合わせください。
