(Virtual) Learning on the Farm!
This year, the farm has gone virtual! We are producing five educational videos with handouts to be used in your classroom.
Check out our virtual field trips to bring the farm to your classroom, wherever that may be this year.
We will not be hosting guided field trips this fall.
Self-guided tours are welcome any weekday. A reservation is not required, but you are welcome to let us know you are coming if you wish.
Self-Guided Field Trips
Groups of 19 or less
$7.00 per person (age 1 & under free)
Small groups are welcome to enjoy the farm Mondays-Fridays, September 23 through October 31, from 9am-3pm without reservation or guide. When you arrive, please have an adult check in at the produce area to purchase your field trip wristbands and pick up our self-guide tour bag. Farm Animal encounters, small Corn Maze and the Backyard Playground are all included. In October, Wagon Rides are offered once between 10-11:00am and once between 2-3:00pm. Ask about the next wagon ride when you check in. We will try to accommodate your group with a wagon ride but we can not guarantee a ride. Remember to pick out your children’s small pumpkin before you leave.
