Field Trips

School Field Trips
Field TripsOur school tours are filled with lots of fun and education for students of all ages. Plan early if you would like your group to share in the fun! We will be offering tours on weekdays throughout the Fall season. As parents ourselves, we think it's a terrific way to learn about farming, nature and the environment.

Learning Objectives

Our objective is to provide an enjoyable and unique educational environment for children to learn about pumpkins, trees and the fall harvest season on an authentic working farm. This experience will bring your classroom lessons to life where students can ask questions and have hands-on fun.

Farm Activities

There are many interesting and exciting activities here at the farm. An animated "Bert the Beekeeper" shares the buzz about honey and other bee facts in The Bee Barn. Gene and Cousin Davey lead the crowd in cheering on our curly tailed friends to the finish line at the Hillbilly Pig Races. The Farm Discovery Center will be open for students to visit on their own. Teachers may lead their class at their own pace and scheduled events will be posted daily at the Admission Barn.
