Take an extraordinary field trip to the farm! On The Farm Discovery Center, Inc. is an educational facility located in  a restored barn. Award winning farmer, educator, video producer Chris Fesko pulled this 100-year-old barn from ruins, providing a rich atmosphere for people to reminisce. 

Multi-disciplined activities (math, science and language arts), and problem based learning are captured in several curricula that Chris has developed for teachers. These activities are part of the educational field trip for visitors.

Academic subjects covered:

Cycle of life
Cycle of water
Clean water, clean air
Simple and complex machines
Mathematics using an ear of corn
Pond life
Responsibility of ownership
Mammal characteristics
Domesticated vs. wild animals
An unequaled view of Skaneateles Lake, a working windmill, and many animals in residence makes this a unique facility and program.
