Our field trips begin promptly at 10am and end at 1:15pm. Please arrive at the farm by 9:30 in order to have time to come into the Mason Jar Market to pay admission ($7 per person, 2 & under free) and receive an arm band, use the restrooms, etc. (Our teachers are free policy ONLY applies to public and private school teachers). If you are late you will miss an activity, we will not be able to repeat that activity as we need to stay on schedule. So don’t be late! Make those kiddos get moving early.
There will be four educational, hands-on stations:
- Learn all about farm animals and feed/pet our farm animals. (fall, spring and Christmas).
- Take a scenic hayride around the farm and see the wildflowers and Christmas tree forest. (fall, Christmas and spring)
- Learn about the life-cycle of a baby chicken. (spring) Paint a mini pumpkin to take home. (fall) Make an ornament (Christmas).
- Learn the parts of the plant and all about pollination. (spring) Learn the life-cycle of the pumpkin and some cool pumpkin facts. (fall) Learn how we grow REAL trees and the environmental benefits of REAL trees (Christmas).
Lunch follows the stations. We have a large pavilion and lots of picnic tables for you to enjoy your lunch! You are allowed to bring in sack lunches, or you may choose to purchase one of our yum-eee lunch options: all beef hot dog, grill cheese, OR a 7″ personal size! Other great treats are nachos, frito pie, chips and pickles. We have great drink options as well: fresh squeezed lemonade, sweet tea, Coke, Diet Coke, Dr Pepper, Sprite, Red Flash, Blue Powerade and bottled water. Make sure you check out the dee-licious desserts in The Mason Jar Market!
Following lunch you can head down to our shaded playground or take a spin through the mazes and let the kiddos go crazy so they will be sure to snooze all the way home!
