When students arrive at the farm for a Spring field trip, they will be divided into tour groups by class. Each group will rotate between these farm learning activities:

  • Learning about blackberries or blueberries, depending on availability
  • Visiting the Berry Patch to pick a container of berries for eating or to take home!
  • Milking demonstration in the dairy barn
  • Honeybee Demonstration
  • Taking a hayride tour of the farm
  • Visiting Belle’s Barn to meet our farm animals
  • Fun on the jumping pillow

Have a picnic on the farm!
Field trip groups are welcome to bring a sack lunch. Picnic tables are available under our covered pavilions. There are restroom and hand washing facilities available.
