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 teachers with 15 or more students in their classroom, which is primarily 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 and spring)
- Take a scenic hayride around the farm and see the wildflowers and Christmas tree forest. (fall and spring)
- Learn about the life-cycle of a baby chicken. (spring) Paint a mini pumpkin to take home. (fall)
- Learn the parts of the plant and all about pollination. (spring) Learn the life-cycle of the pumpkin and some cool pumpkin facts. (fall)
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 lunch specials for $6 each — all beef hot dog, chips and drink OR grill cheese, chips and drink.
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!
