Sunshine Farm is part of Crellin Elementary's instructional program and serves as a means to teach agriculture and sustainability practices. Currently it is the home of two sheep Rain and Sunny, and twelve hens. Students clean the barns and the barnyards and collect the eggs which are used in the school. The wool from our sheep is sheared then washed and carded by students. We sell the clean wool and are learning how to spin it with our new spinning wheel. Students love to play with the animals on the playground located in the barnyard. We are very busy on Sunshine Farm!
This barn is the home to our hens. It was the first barn constructed on Sunshine Farm.
Students love to play on the playground in the barnyard.
Our hens get lots of attention.
Rain love the attention from students.
Students are always gentle with the animals.
Dr. Casey performed a sonogram on Sunny so we could confirm her pregnancy.
Students enjoyed watching Dr. Casey. We may have young vets at Crellin!
Sunny had two baby lambs, Thunder and Lightning.
After the lambs were born we weighed them using a spring scale and a harness.
The lambs also needed to get their vaccinations.
