Field Trips in 2024

What always stays the same:

 

We offer a unique experience on a working farm (that produces food for our family) where students can pick up, hold or touch all of the animals, as well as hear from the farmers who care for the animals every day.

What it will be like this year:

 

Your group will stay together and be guided around the farm activities.

Each teacher will receive full instructions ahead of the visit, as well as a teacher package

This page is for groups arriving by bus.

We have reserved time for family-based field trips.  Head over to this page.

Activity Guarantee

We expect to provide each of the above activities on every visit.

We expect to also offer a few other options

If, due to unexpected circumstances, one of the core activities will not be available,

we will notify you and offer an alternative. 

Planning Your Day

format

Each school will start the day with a guided introduction and a starting point for the group to enjoy together.  You will be guided as a group through half of the farm in the morning, then given a scheduled lunch break, followed by the other half of the farm in the afternoon. 

 

We are flexible for starting and ending times as bus schedules demand it, but the usual tour starts around 10:00, the lunch break is normally from 11:45 - 12:15, and we often wrap up by 1:30 with time to wash, visit the bathroom and play at the playground before 2:00.

 

We will be offering significant guidance before the field trip, along with advance material to prep your students and volunteers to get the most out of your farm adventure.


All of your favorite activities will be offered, including pony rides, hayrides, sheep shearing, goat milking, and all the baby animals.  There will be staff giving instruction, telling stories and supervising all the animal handling stations.  All stations with animals that can be picked up will be staffed to help children succeed, however each group is responsible to supervise their children.

 

Each morning/afternoon circuit has one self-guided portion.

 

We still recommend a minimum ratio of 1 adult per 5 students.
