Field Trips

Visit us for an educational tour that introduces students to life on an organic farm. 

Join our educator on a walking tour of our greenhouses, fields, and education garden. Students will encounter a variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables in different stages of plant maturity.   Students will also have the opportunity to  meet and interact with pigs, chickens, lambs, and our farm dog, Blue. Our educator will show how we care for our farm animals and how the animals contribute to the farm.  We provide age-appropriate, hands-on learning experience such as planting, watering, weeding, or harvesting crops, as well as feeding the animals.  (Activities will vary depending on the season, age, and size of the group). Trips can be tailored to meet your classroom's needs. Some topics for discussion during your visit may include:

 

  • Organic Farming - Discover what it means to be organic and how it affects us and our world.

  • Composting- Delve into the microscopic world of recycling the earth’s nutrients.

  • Farm Animals - Explore how livestock benefits our farm and provides food for us.
