Wessels Classes for the Month of July

We are canceling our classes for June and will try again after the fourth of July.

Please Contact Wessels Living History Farm to register at 402-710-0682.
Please note the appropriate ages for each class. All classes are from 9-11

July 7-9 Animal Care and fun:

Come and spend some time with the Wessels Farm animals! Our own Grace Regier will talk to us about the needs of the different animals we have at the farm and how to take care of them each day. You will get a chance to help with many animals’ needs including feeding, grooming, exercising, and cleaning up after them.
This class open to all school aged students. $21 class fee.

July 22-24 Photography class:

For this class, Wessels is lucky to have secured a photography expert, who is a former journalist for NTV and was a Nebraska High School Journalism Teacher of the Year. She will be coming to help us understand our cameras and phones during this course. We will also have the guidance of a local “animal photographer” who has offered to help us during the week. This is valuable knowledge for young journalists and photographers, all the way to adults. Bring your phone or camera to participate this week.
This class open to students aged 12 to adult. $21 class fee.

July 27-29 Egg Candling and other chicken stuff:

We will have a class on egg candling with our own Wessels eggs! Learn this skill that produce companies located in York practiced daily. York was once known as “The Egg Capital of the World”. Come experience a part of our history.
This class open to all school aged students. $21 class fee.

In August:

Wessels will offer an art class or two with canvas painting and/or barn quilt work. This will be an adult class offering adult beverages while we work. Watch for more on this exciting event! Class size will be limited. More to come.
