Spring and Summer farm tours


Book trips for your school, day care or mom's group. 

There is so much for kids and adults to learn and enjoy!  Take a walk or hayrack ride through our fields and get some hands on learning.

Spring time: Plant a flower in a pot for mother's day!  See how vegetables grow in our greenhouses before they're transplanted outside.  Help us put baby flowers into planters or hanging baskets. Visit the bees in our observation hive.


Summer:  Vegetable picking! Pull onions out of the ground, pick zucchini & yellow squash, or maybe see how broccoli and cauliflower grow. We grow a huge variety of produce and we can let you pick whatever is in season!  

Ideas:  Make the trip into a writing assignment. Study the botany of a pumpkin or squash flower. Bring the vegetables back to class or home to cut, cook and continue the experience.  


Please plan to spend at least 1 hour with us. You will walk and/or take a hayrack ride into our fields. We will make 2-3 stops and talk about the plants we see, how they are grown and how to pick them. Each child will have his own bag and pick 4-6 items to leave with. 

  

Costs: 

$5.00 per child

$3.00 parents (Do not receive a bag of produce)

Teachers and students aids are free


Minimum charge of $50.00 per group.


This tour is not available for strawberry picking.
