If a student needs to cancel or wants to change to a different workshop: 
Owing to the amount of time and effort that goes into planning and holding a workshop, cancellations or a request to change to a different workshop must be made at least 30 days prior to the start date of a workshop in order to receive a refund.  Refunds are the amount paid for the workshop minus a non-refundable $25 registration fee. 

If Sanborn Mills Farm needs to cancel a workshop:
Each workshop must have a minimum number of students.  If a cancellation becomes necessary, we will notify students two weeks prior to the start date of a workshop and a FULL refund will be provided to any students who have registered.

Refunds for workshops purchased as a gift certificate will be to the purchaser only.


There are specific safety requirements depending upon the type of workshop you will be taking:

  • Blacksmithing workshops:  Students are required to use eye protection at all times, use ear protection when using power equipment, and wear sturdy covered shoes. We recommend wearing clothing made from natural fibers and a leather apron.
  • Draft animal workshops: Students are required to wear sturdy laced up work shoes/boots at all times, wear a hard hat when working in the woods, and use eye & ear protection when making draft animal equipment, especially when working with power tools.

Sanborn Mills Farm is a rural setting so if you are allergic to insect bites, please alert your instructor of your allergy and bring an epipen with you while on the farm.


The fee for the workshop includes meals as listed in each workshop description. You will be asked if you have any food restrictions prior to your workshop.  Workshop activities and meals are for paying participants only.


If traveling from afar to take a workshop, housing is available right here at the farm. Click here to learn about housing options.


  • For the safety and comfort of all, pets are not permitted at workshops.
