Primary & Preschool Field Trips

Give your class a day of fun and learning on the farm and see how easily science lessons come to life.

Whether old friends or new, we are excited to share our farm with you.  Field trips are tailored to complement in-class instruction with hands-on science learning experiences your primary and preschool students will enjoy and your school district can afford!

Spring: Children learn the seasons and life cycles of sunflowers and plant a sunflower to take home.      Fall: Children visit our pumpkin patch to visually learn how pumpkins grow, and every child, parent and teacher picks a pumpkin to take home.

Spring and Fall: The children visit the farm animals and learn the daily routine care and feeding of our horses….although they won’t be taking home a horse.
