Home Schools   

Two Dachshund Farm emphasizes education and we love hosting school groups.  We try to provide activities that are educational and fun and involve learning about fiber, fiber animals, and other farm animals and their jobs on our farm.  We move student groups through various stations  that include meeting and learning about our different animals, learning about the value in fiber animals, understanding the process of turning animal fiber into products, and participating in a craft as well as other activities.  We can also design a farm visit that meets your own specific objectives or standards.

  • We caution about the use of strollers and wheelchairs currently for the health and safety of our guests.  We have some gravel surfaces that make it difficult to maneuver.  If you do use a stroller or wheelchair, tires should be sanitized after visiting in the animal areas.
