One of the invaluable gifts children have is infectious enthusiasm for nature, a
gift that will last for the rest of their lives - long after the cell phones and tablets have
disappeared. A child's relationship with nature and food is imperative for overall
development and education. It has been proven by research that the children
who grow their own food are more likely to have healthy eating habits and eat more
vegetables and fruits.
Little Farmer is an effort to connect children to the food they eat and the
land on which it grows. In the fast paced city life where parents and children both
are busy, food is the first thing that is neglected. Children have started liking
processed, fast food over home cooked healthy food and they have no idea of where
the milk & eggs come from.
A day spent on a farm can meet numerous learning objectives and also build a
long lasting relationship with nature.
Experience the farm and process of growing food.
Appreciate the animals who contribute to our daily diet.
Observe the process of milking the cow & feed the cage free chicken.
Learn the cycle of crop cultivation and participate in the process.
Understand the importance of eating organic food and impact on health
Apart from meeting the above objectives, we ensure that the children
play games and have fun with the domestic animals on the farm.
