The wide-open spaces of a farm provide the ultimate playground for kids, and one Vermont dairy lets non-farm kids in on the fun, while also teaching them about working hard and caring for animals.

“Life on the Farm,” a summer camp at Fairmont Farm in East Montpelier, gives kids age six through 12 the chance to help out on a dairy for a week.

“We have fun with the cows and we’re learning a lot, so it’s like school but we’re having fun,” said 10-year-old camper Ava. “I like doing chores and cleaning up after the cows. I love my calf, she’s really fun to play with, and her name is Terry.”
