Visit a Farm
York Adams Council

How many of the boys in your den have ever milked a cow or gathered eggs from chickens?  This month’s theme promotes the All-American Tradition of farming.  Stop in at a local farm and check with the family running it to see if you can arrange a visit to the farm.  Make sure to use the Local Tour Permit and permission slips before going, though!


Build A Pioneer Farm
York Adams Council

Here’s one my son’s den did years ago.  They made a train garden-like setup on a large piece of masonite that included the layout of a homestead type farm.  The leaders pre-made the buildings out of cardboard and the boys “built” the buildings using twigs hot-glued to the cardboard structures. For  roofing, they used cedar shakes from a craft store (like Ben Franklin’s). The buildings were laid out on the board to resemble the homestead layout.  Fencing was “snake fencing” made from crisscrossed twigs .
