Louise’s Farm School is a place for homeschoolers to get a hands-on lesson in environmental science and a place for APU graduate students to practice their teaching skills in outdoor education. The farm school is located on an 800 acre working hay ranch in Palmer. It doesn’t take the place of a regular school but it does offer a variety of sessions for elementary age, homeschool students.
