Here at Donn's Teamster Training School we believe in two things: Learning by doing, and learning in context.
With each student we will work to raise their understanding of the animals and the tasks of a working horse and mule powered farm. We will provide a safe beginning with clear instruction, and then take the time to develop each individual’s skills while allowing increasing independence to experience working horses and mules to complete all manner of farm tasks.
The heart of our program
is for beginning teamsters who want to spend one to two months in an intensive training program that will help them toward working on their own farm or forest. Their stay on our farm becomes progressively less expensive the longer they stay, as we encourage a longer learning experience for a beginner and we start to utilize some of their budding teamster skills to help us get our farm work done.
