About:  Loma Vista Farm is a 5-acre outdoor classroom that provides hands-on educational activities involving plants and animals for children of all ages and abilities. We seek to increase students’ knowledge of nature and nutrition while enhancing academic learning, ecoliteracy, and psychosocial development.

They host two family-friendly events each year: Harvest Festival and Spring Festival—old-fashioned, carnival fun, activities, pumpkin sales, food, and more. Christmas tree sales begin after Thanksgiving through Dec, or until supplies last. Trees are available by pre-order, or onsite weekend sales - call ahead to make sure of availability.  Their trees are very affordable, yet high-quality. Proceeds go toward education programs, farm maintenance, animal food and veterinarian care.

+ A favorite group meet-up location. The kids love to feed the animals, check out their amazing garden, and enjoy a simple art project and snacks.

++ Remember to bring quarters to feed the animals, and please consider giving a donation.
