Here is what folks are saying about Old McDonald's Farm, Inc. programs...

“I want to thank you for the amazing experience both our kids had this summer at the farm. They took the responsibility you gave very seriously (for the animals, the other kids, etc., depending on the child) and were proud when they rose to the occasion. I know how much work it is to do what you do, and I want you to know what a difference you made for both boys. You helped them grow so much! I'm proud of them and grateful to you.” Parent of a 10-year old and of a 13-year old

“…I really just wanted to say a big thank you for giving Maggie (name changed) the opportunity this last summer to help you. She was completely in her element and enjoyed every minute.
