Raise Baby Chicks & Then Return Them to Their Flock!


This event has passed, but check out our calendar for fun today, this week, this month!


Kids love baby chicks! But, baby chicks become adults, and I’m sure you never wanted adult pet chickens! However, you can have the best of both worlds — check out Great Country Farm’s Chick-Keeping 101 Program!

For a reasonable fee, beginning March 2, 2020, families can sign up for GCF’s Peep Program. This allows you to buy baby chicks that are 3- to 5-days-old, take them home, and raise them until they are ready to go back home and join their flock at Great Country Farms. Minimal equipment is needed to raise chicks, and Great Country Farms has equipment packages for purchase as well.

This is such a fun way to welcome spring and teach your kids about the responsibility and fun of caring for a farm animal!

What: Raise Baby Chicks
When: Program opens for sign-up Mar 2, 2020
Where: Great Country Farms, 18780 Foggy Bottom Rd., Bluemont, VA 20135
