~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!

牧場FARM-#2 Mattison Corner Farm

<FARM #2-Mattison Corner Farm>
今日紹介するのはファームステイで訪れる2つ目の牧場Mattison Corner Farmです。ここは主催者Chrisの実家で家族Richard&Barbの牧場です。

主にジプシーホースという種の馬とアーミッシュ一家が所有する馬が合わせて8頭ほどとオリに入っていないケージフリーのチキンが20-30羽います。
ここでは乗馬体験、馬車に乗ったり、馬のお世話をしたり(毎日ではありません)馬さんとの遊ぶといった感じです。
その傍らニワトリが産んだ卵をアチコチ探し見つけたら持ち帰り翌日の朝食でいただきます。まるで宝探しゲームの様。でも一生懸命卵を温めている母ニワトリを目の当たりにして「I wanna warm this egg!」と言い始める子供たち。

昨年はこの牧場の愛犬エディの散髪とお風呂に入れてあげることも一緒にさせてもらい楽しかったね。ネコも何匹もいて子供たちそれぞれ自分の時間に浸って楽しんでいました。
