OTHER EDUCATION
& PROGRAMS

At Holly Farm, we believe animals are some of our greatest teachers. We are committed to creating a fun, inclusive, and healthy environment to learn from each other and our four-legged herd.
See below for our list of programs. 

Birthday Parties

Do you have an animal-crazy child who would like to celebrate their birthday at our farm? Our Birthday Parties include an hour of fun with our animals, with opportunities to pet donkeys, feed goats, hold chickens, and more! Then celebrate together with your guests in our historic barn, where you will have access to a heated party room, kitchenette, and bathroom – perfect for parties all year round!

 

Looking to include a horse experience? We also offer Pony Parties, which add pony rides for the birthday child and friends (available May through October).
 

Prices for our party offerings begin at:

$395 for a two-hour Animal Farm Party for up to 10 guests (ages 3 and up)

$595 for a three-hour Pony Party for up to 10 guests (ages 6 and up)

Note: All parties include 30 minutes before and after for set-up and take down.

 

Want to elevate your party experience? Options include additional guests, arts & crafts, extended time in the animal farm, and more – prices will vary.

School and Youth Programs

We offer a variety of programs for school and club groups ages 8+. These programs foster a connection to and provide a greater understanding of our animals and their environment, through exploratory educational experiences, visits with our animal farm residents, and age-appropriate team activities led by our qualified instructors and staff. Sample curriculum elements include egg science with our flock of chickens, horse and farm animal anatomy, plant science, and basic horsemanship. Wondering what else we can offer? Ask us - our curriculum can be tailored to accommodate themes and activities specific to your club, class, or organization.

 

Current specific offerings include field trips, seasonal school break camps, and half day educational camps for Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops. Prices vary based on group size, session length, and curriculum.

Internship Programs

Do you love to spend time around animals, want to be a horse owner, or want to develop responsibility and leadership skills? We offer two internship programs – an arena internship and a barn internship. Our Arena Internship is offered for current intermediate and advanced students aged 13+ who want to learn to support our instructors. Availability varies according to the riding school schedule.

Our Barn Internship is open to all animal lovers ages 9+, who want to help care for and learn about our animals. We ask for at least a three-month commitment to one weekly session (offered Saturdays and Sundays from 9:30am to 12:30 pm) for all new barn internship program participants. Barn interns spend two hours assisting barn staff with animal care chores, and one hour participating in staff-led animal-centric activities.

Summer Camps

Summer is a great time for your child to dive into farm life! Our campers learn all about animal care, horsemanship, and plant science through hands-on learning activities and daily crafts, while spending lots of time with our herd. This is the perfect opportunity for your horse- or animal-crazy kid to explore what it takes to care for and handle animals.

We have several camp options, including Farm Camp (ages 9-13), Horse Camp (ages 9-13), and Junior Camp (ages 6-8). Limited financial aid is available for youth who would not otherwise be able to participate in camps.

Farm Tours

Come visit Holly Farm, our historic horse and husbandry farm located in Bothell, just 20 miles north of Seattle! Our tours will include an introduction to our animal farm residents (including miniature donkeys, sheep, goats, chickens, a llama, and more), meet a few of our friendly horses, learn about how we care for our animals, and see what day-to-day life looks like at the farm. Each tour is led by one of our qualified staff members who will make sure that there is plenty of time to ask questions, make new furry friends, and take photos along the way.

We offer walking tours by appointment-only, perfect for ages 2 and older. Each tour is approximately one hour and requires walking over some uneven ground. Groups of up to 10 people start at $125/tour; groups of 11 – 15 people start at $155/tour.

Inquire here for availability.
