Our educational field trips expose children and adults to real farm life. This includes an upclose look at organic vegetables production, pastured heritage breed animals and sustainable farming practices. We will provide age appropriate, hands on learning experiences that can be tailored to meet your classroom's needs. All education levels are welcome, including graduate classes.
Some of the topics we can include in your visit are:
A walking tour of our fields, catch of glimpse of what a day of life at the farm looks like. Meet the animals we raise here and learn about their role on the farm. Learn about the seasonal variety of fruit, vegetables, meat and eggs we grow on our integrated farm. See what it means to be an organic farm. Get a look into modern greenhouse farming. Learn about the benefits of community-supported agriculture (CSA).
Life on a Farm is an introduction to all the animals that live and work here. We investigate the habitats of our chickens, pigs and sheep, as well as our kitties and the farm dog. We will visit a greenhouse, a hen house, the sheep barn and the pig pile. We will learn the difference between animals who work for us and animals who are our pets. This trip will include discussion of healthy practices for growing food on an organic farm.
Integrated Farming provides an overview of current accepted sustainable farm practices. We will examine “waste” generated on the farm - animal, mineral and otherwise. We will look at ways in which we can reuse, recycle and renew our resources. We will visit a hen house, the sheep barn, the fields and of course the compost pile.
Field trips are 90 minutes long and cost $8 per person. One adult chaperone per 6 students is free. A $25 deposit is requested to reserve your date.
