Aaren Harris opened the Little Wings Farm School this fall on the 20-acre farm in Greenfield where she has lived with her family for 14 years. It is the realization of a yearslong dream to offer young students a chance to learn in and around nature and the day-to-day life of a working farm. She said she is still enrolling families in the program, which costs $500 a month. Harris can also accept child care vouchers.

She started the new program with about a half dozen kids — ages 3 and 4 attending a morning program that runs from 9 to 11:30 a.m. — and plans to expand to an afternoon class session and a short summer camp.

Gazette reporter Zachary Matson visited Harris and her class recently. Here is his Sunday story: https://dailygazette.com/2021/10/03/greenfield-farm-school-program-takes-flight/
