Educational School Tours

elementary schools - mom's clubs - home school groups - virtual schools

Hosting children at the farm is a great way for us to share our farming experiences with future generations!  We provide a fun and educational excursion for elementary schools, preschools, day-care groups, home school groups, mom's clubs and playgroups.  Tours can be tailored to meet your group's needs.

During the fall season, we are ONLY open for scheduled school tours on weekdays, not open to the public. Thus, we encourage families with challenging schedules to join the Home School Days because we are open to the public from 9am-2pm those two days in the fall. Our other days are packed with school tours, and for safety reasons with the large number of children, we do not allow the public at the farm during these types.
