Peep Program - Raise a Chick

Kids love baby chicks! But, baby chicks become adults, and adult chickens require a lot of care! However, you can have the best of both worlds — check out Great Country Farm’s Chick-Keeping 101 Program! Reserve four chicks now and pick them up April 4-11.

For a reasonable fee, families can sign up for GCF’s Peep Program 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 back at Great Country Farms. GCF also has the equipment you'll need packaged for purchase. This is such a fun way to welcome spring and teach your kids about the responsibility and fun of caring for a farm animal!
