Circle D Ranch

Barbara & Bill Drury

Why visit Circle D Ranch?
We have a large farm with a variety of livestock and diverse crops. Students can see a cow herd with baby calves, meet young pigs, and walk or run in the broad open spaces. I milk our dairy cow to make cheese, butter and yogurt. Butter making is an easy and fun activity for children. We can build a compost pile and students can plant a seed to take home and grow on their own.

Available for fall farm tours only this year.

Why Visit Dusty Trail Yukon?
We raise chickens and pigs, which have been key in building up soil fertility in the gardens. In spring, students can see baby chicks, feed piglets and make their own newspaper pots to plant a seed to take home. Students can help harvest root crops and learn preservation techniques in the fall. We have a chicken processing shop and offer demonstrations to interested groups.

Bart Bounds

Why Visit Elemental Farm?
Our farm is one important system or cycle - with livestock, gardens, greenhouse and compost all relying on each other to work. Interacting with our compost pile and our worms is a hit. It’s like a treasure hunt! There’s lots of space to spread out, learn and have fun on our farm, rain or shine.

Dev & Louise Hurlburt

Why Visit Horse Haven Ranch?
Our 80 cows will have 80 calves in spring and our pigs and wild boar have piglets year-round. Students can come learn about animal husbandry, genetics and adaptations to our northern climate. We grow all our own animal feeds for harvest and sale, and the meats we sell are 100% Yukon-raised. We are proud of that statistic because we are one of the few meat producers in the area who can make that claim.

Shiela Alexandrovich and Sia Metta

Why visit Wheaton River Gardens?
Wheaton River Gardens is a working example of nature’s circles: animal waste to compost to gardens to animal and people food. It is a chance to meet a community of animals and people that live together and depend on each other for well being. It is an exploration of working with nature as our guide, and trying to be respectful of the needs of the planet as well.
