Empowering children and families to live strong, energetic lives.
HealthBarn USA believes kids (and the parents who love them!) will eat healthier when given the opportunity and knowledge to do so. We make living and eating healthy fun and doable through our proven hands-on healthy-lifestyle education experience for children and their families on the farm and in schools. Our spring, summer, fall and holiday seasonal programs combine research-based nutrition education, physical activity and self-esteem development in an entertaining, high-energy learning environment.
We offer a one-of-a-kind opportunity for children to be active by working on a farm and to learn about nutrition by growing, harvesting and cooking with fresh seasonal food. The authentic farm provides a natural environment to engage children and help them adopt healthy behaviors. Weekly parent workshops give parents the skills necessary to support healthy living at home. Not convinced? Watch kids in action Being a Farmer, Being a Chef, and Being Green — and you will see for yourself why HealthBarn USA is the place to be for having fun while learning to be healthy!
HealthBarn USA brings together a team of food, nutrition, agriculture and education experts who teach children important environmental concepts such as local and organic farming; sustainability; composting; recycling; and animal stewardship. These unique, hands-on programs were developed with guidance from our esteemed advisory board and in collaboration with our academic partners – Rutgers Cooperative Extension and Teacher's College at Columbia University.
