Dear Ivory Farms,

We recently visited this farm with a small homeschool group and had no idea what to expect. We thought we would get a tour and maybe see a few new things. Little did we know, David and Dawn had a whole 2 1/2 hours of nature enrichment planned out for us! We planted a sunflower seed to take home, learned about why bees, worms and recycling are important and saw examples of all of these things in action! We saw and learned about peacocks, rabbits and guinea pigs as well as the many different plants around. Farmer David has an infectious excitement about everything on the farm and shares about it passionately. Educator Dawn has that special "with-it-ness" that's needed when working with children and is able to draw them in, but doesn't mind the bit of chaos as kids get excited and unpredictable at times. She takes every opportunity to educate with a relaxed expertise. I could talk with and listen to David and Dawn all day! This farm is a HUGE resource in the community and is a must visit to get acquainted with what wonderful things they are doing there. I can't wait to go back to get more rabbit pellets and worm emulsion for my garden! I would love to buy a worm bin and giant rabbit from them one day! Just simply visiting Ivory Farms helped to see that I need to prioritize more nature and recycling around my own house and helped us all to escape a bit from our "city life". Where else can you spend some time digging in a pile of dirt to find worms, baby worms and worm eggs? What a gem this place is!

Dave, Dawn and Walter,

Thank you so much for showing us the farm and sharing all that you do- the kids LOVED it and had so much fun! It was so interesting to see how all of the animal and plants work together and create a beautiful farm and garden. I loved learning about work-keeping and we’re definitely going to try it at home. Thank you so 

much for all that you do, we’ll definitely be back!
