Lil' Lester's


Lil’ Lester’s is a program we created in 2011. We wanted to give kids the opportunity to do what we love, farm! In this program kids of all ages will learn some basics of farming through fun and rewarding work. The members will have the chance to see how things grow, learn the importance of farming in Newfoundland, all the while having fun and meeting new friends!


The program begins between the last week of June and the first week of July each year, depending on what club you sign up for, the club will run for either four, five or six weeks. Since we wanted to reach as many kids as we could, we have since added to our original club so that we could accommodate a wider variety of ages. Please read the following descriptions about the club divisions.


We are very proud to have this program exclusive to our one and only farm, Lester's Farm Market, located on Brookfield Road. Have questions? Feel free to contact Susan through email or through our Facebook page at any time.


Lil' Lester's programs are all full for this season. Registraion will begin early next March for the 2018 groups.


Littlest Lester’s

This club is for ages 3-4. They meet for 45 minutes once a week for five consecutive weeks. During this time the kids will be able to plant their own flowers and veggies, pick a few of our delicious berries as well as visit our animal friends. Of course to reward them for all of their hard work we will have a farm celebration on the last night of the club.


Lil’ Lester’s

This club is for ages 5-10. This group of kids will meet for an hour and fifteen minutes once a week for six weeks total, or in the condensed program they will meet for two hours for four weeks total. They too will get to plant their own veggies, they will also get to harvest some veggies, visit our animal friends and learn some more basics to farming. Again to reward all of their hard work they too will have a farm celebration on the last night of the club.


Junior Lester’s ages 7 - 10

This is a six week program which again meets for an hour and fifteen minutes each week. In order to be a part of the Junior Lester’s Club the Lil’ Lester’s Club must have been completed. This is because this club is a more extensive farming experience. Along with doing similar activities as the previous groups, they will also be responsible for their own garden which we will have set up for them here on the farm. As always, we will celebrate the summer’s hard work on the last night of the club.


Condensed Program

Going on holidays in August? Then our condensed program is perfect for you! What we have done is condensed the usual six-week one hour fifteen minute program, into a four-week two hour program. Even though the program is four weeks they will still do the same activities as the regular seven-week program, just on a slightly different time line.

We offer the condensed program for the Lil’ Lester’s (ages 5-10). The condensed program is on Wednesdays and will start July 5.

Senior Lester’s ages 10-13

This program is geared towards ages 10-13 and will meet once a week for a total of seven times. They will be doing many farming activities such as planting, growing, harvesting and they will also be doing some handling of the animals as well. We really want to open the possibilities of agriculture up to this age group! This group is open to anyone within this age range.
