The Farm

While Keystone is a great place to get a fabulous education, it is also a real working farm. Each day the students of Keystone feed, groom, clean up after, and love on our animals. Preschool goes to pasture once a week, while the other grades go at least three times a week. For our kids, these are some of their favorite times! The Keystone animals are very well-loved.

Pasture jobs are:chicken

  • Feed the horse and llamas
  • Brush the horse and donkeys
  • Gather eggs from the chickens
  • Feed and replace water for the chickens
  • Scoop manure from the pasture

 

Currently, Keystone's farm animals include:

  • Lucky Charm, the miniature horse
  • Juliet, the mama llama
  • Winter, the newborn llama (January 15, 2019!)
  • Rosie, a llama, one of Juliet's babies
  • Chris, a llama
  • Captain Crunch, a miniature donkey
  • Mrs. Crunch, a miniature donkey
  • Salt, a sheep
  • Pepper, a sheep
  • Snowball, a sheep who thinks she's a goat
  • Oreo, the goat who will still let you hold him

Plus a coop full of chickens and a rooster, a pigeon house full of pigeons, and our resident ducks and geese!

We also have an organic garden for children to plant and harvest. In fact, we use our horse manure to make worm castings that help to fertilize and grow our vegetables.
