This program is poplar with both teachers for their classrooms and with families with small children. You get two baby chicks for 2 weeks. They come with their own box, food, and instructions. All you have to do is love them, keep them warm, give them food a few times a day, make sure they have water, and change their paper. It’s a great learning experience for the children and the best part for Mom is that they come back to the farm after 2 weeks. It’s only $25 for the 2 weeks. You do need to reserve them in advance so call us at (843) 559-0763 if you are interested. We have 2 dates available for pickup April 8th and 9th and then Easter weekend April 22nd and 23rd.
Legare farms is a 9th generation locally owned and operated family farm in John's Island, SC.
