Fun Activities for the Summer at a Local Farm

Cooperstown, N.Y., has so many wonderful attractions for kids, but let's not forget the myriad things to do for the family not too far outside the village. One such destination is Glen Brook Farm, about a half-hour from Cooperstown in Oneonta, N.Y. Glen Brook Farm features summer workshops where kids can "interact with animals, work in the garden or create in small groups led by artists, who guide them in drawing, painting, sculpture and other mediums, all while working in outdoor studios," according to its brochure. The emphasis is on education and sustainability, inspiring the values of caring, responsibility, honesty and good stewardship of the land. Wow, this beats playing with a video game any day! We recommend checking out some of the summer activities at Glen Brook.
