Sunshine Farm

Sunshine Farm is part of Crellin Elementary's instructional program and serves as a means to teach agriculture and sustainability practices. It is the home of one calf, Norman, two goats, Bambi and Cookie Dough, two sheep, Rain and Sunny, and sixteen hens. Bambi and Rain are both pregnant and will birth their babies this year. Students bottle feed Norman twice a day and feed the other animals as well. They 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!
