Kinni River Farm School

Connecting individuals to outdoor education and the heritage arts through classes, workshops, and experiences.


Alexa Eickschen

Kinni River Farm School is based out of Alexa’s family farm. Alexa has a passion for hospitality and creating spaces that allow people to connect. As a Mom of two Alexa found herself yearning for opportunities that were accessible for her and her children to enjoy the outdoors together! After participating in various Forest and Farm School programs, Alexa knew that the River Falls and surrounding area could benefit from having more outdoor education options. Alexa has been teaching yoga for eight years and holds certifications through Yoga Alliance for 200hr, 300hr, and Little Lotus training. Alexa currently teaches at the YMCA Twin Cities locations.

Maya Shelton

Maya fell in love with the St. Croix River Valley area when she attended UWRF to obtain her bachelor’s degree in Animal Science. She moved back to the area with her now husband after completing her Doctorate in Chiropractic at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN. Maya worked for several years as a successful equine chiropractor, but ultimately chose to stay home with her two boys during COVID and the subsequent years. For the last two years she has been working at her boys’ Montessori school as an assistant and Spanish guide in their toddler room. Maya is now looking forward to changing things up again with providing quality outdoor education at the Kinni River Farm School!
