Many children have never felt a caterpillar, or seen a chrysalis. Here at The Little Farm Butterfly garden, you can witness the full metamorphosis of butterflies amidst our host and flowering plants. You can give your students an opportunity to learn about and enjoy a hands-on agricultural experience that they will never forget.
Throughout the year visitors can see the full life cycle of a butterfly, eggs to larvae (caterpillar) to chrysalis to butterfly. The transformation is magical and the result is inspiring.
The Little Farm Butterfly Garden is home to:
- Zebra Longwings
- Pipevine Swallowtails
- and more!
Our garden also boasts many plants and pollinators which help make this ecosystem successful. We grow Porter Weeds for our Monarch and Queen butterflies, Coonties for our Atalas and have many flowering varieties which attract other beneficial insects. Your children will see bees, beetles, dragonflies and countless other insects.
