These exciting programs, 10am-2pm, feature a wide variety of activities related to the day's seasonal theme. Pack a picnic and head to our coastal farm to discover Slide Ranch's feathered, furry and wooly friends with your whole family.

A popular day at the farm for families with toddlers and babies!
Toddler Days offer families with young children a special opportunity to meet farm animals, explore our garden, and take part in simple, hands-on cooking and crafting. During a sensory-rich Saturday morning, 9:30-12:30, your young children will discover textures, tastes and smells, and observe the wonders of nature! Enjoy milking a goat, holding a warm, freshly-laid chicken egg, and hearing the baa of our sheep, as we use all of our senses to explore the farm during this family-friendly farm day.
Each Toddler Day is from 9:30am - 12:30pm.

Our Family Campouts offer the very special opportunity to pitch your tent at our campsite overlooking the ocean, have a campfire and wake up on the farm at Slide Ranch. On Saturday, join Slide Ranch teachers for a day of farm activities, crafts and nature exploration. At night, gather for a family potluck dinner, a cozy campfire and camping under the stars. Sunday morning, enjoy a breakfast buffet, morning farm chores, and preparing homemade treats harvested from our organic garden.
Campout begins at 10:00am on Saturday and ends by 1:00pm on Sunday.
Please Note: Participants must bring their own camping equipment (including tent and sleeping bags), a bagged lunch for Saturday and a dish to share for Saturday night’s potluck dinner.

Our beloved Fall Harvest is a day-long celebration, 10am-4pm, featuring the fun variety of hands-on activities typical of a day at Slide, plus special workshops, additional guest educators, performances, delicious farm fresh food for sale and much more. Mingle with the herd of goats and sheep and milk our five lovely does. Feed the flocks of chickens, ducks and turkeys and enjoy their squawks, quacks and gobbles. Observe the buzzing bee hives and step into a beekeeping suit. Make farm-fresh cheese, granola and kombucha to take home. Get crafty and dip your own candles, use natural dyes, and craft with wool from our sheep. Thresh seeds in the garden and make seed balls and garden herb tea bags to take home. Help make a scarecrow and join a scarecrow parade! Look out for whales and dazzling ocean views on our coastal trails or venture down to the tidepools. Dance a jig to live music and enjoy an organic, farm lunch. This special family day is one of our biggest fundraising events of the year. We hope you’ll join us for a festive Harvest Celebration in this glorious season on the coast.
