Our Story

   Founder, Lindsey Schwartz, with her farmer Dad.

Started by the daughter of a farmer. We realized that there was not a farm experience out there made just for young kids, especially one that provides safe, engaging, hands-on animal time taught by teachers with toddler & pre-school experience. So, we created a portfolio of farm experiences that are safe, fun, creative and equally enjoyable for parents, children and animals.
 
Our classes offer an opportunity for kids to play outside and for you to escape the noisy & chaotic indoor options available to you. And the best thing about it? No matter where you are, you'll know that if it's My Little FarmerTM, it's a quality program that you can trust.

My Little Farmer® is an early-education farm company, including toddler & pre-school classes, books, music & toys. Founded in 2017, our farm curricula for kids ages 1 to 6 are easy to implement and available nation-wide. These unique classes are hosted at our own farm locations and partner farms, with our educational experience available at home through our children's books, music & toys. My Little Farmer® is Parent Company to Mini Rider Academy® and Little Flock Preschool®

In 2019 we founded the Mini Rider Academy®; a place for kids, ages 3-9, to experience the world of horses outside of your traditional show barn setting. We've created programs rooted in safety, fun and confidence available for franchising opportunities, certifications and more.

In 2021 we launched Little Flock Preschool®; a play-based farm school encompassing Montessori, Reggio and Project-based approaches. 

We are always looking for new farms and partners and My Little Farmer programming may be just what your farm needs! Request an appointment and tell us a little bit about yourself & your farm. 

My Little Farmer Rescue Foundation

Every class and book sale directly supports the My Little Farmer Rescue Foundation (501c3).  This non-profit organization helps us to rescue and rehabilitate farm animals in need including, but not limited to, abandoned farm animals and those on their way to slaughter. 100% of My Little Farmer's equine animals are saved from slaughter and retrained for our program and forever home. 

Thank you for supporting our business and helping farm animals in need!
