Spring Field Trips

Book Spring Field Trips: Dates Here
Scheduled Weekdays 9am-5pm

Spring is a wonderful time on the farm with planting and growing … and the birth of baby animals! Plus, this year we’re excited to have the retail greenhouses (relocated to the farm) as part of our field trips!  

Field Trip Fees:

Students  $5 — Teachers and Chaperones are *Free
*We recommend one chaperone per 3-4 students.

What’s included:

Depending on the age of your students, we offer farm learning labs on the following subjects (Teachers, choose four from this list!) 

  • Planting seeds for Mr. McGregor’s Garden (students take this home)
  • Transplanting baby plants
  • Learning how Farmer Gary takes care of the farm animals
  • All about earthworms!
  • Making more plants: Dividing and taking cuttings
  • Pizza gardening!
  • How do hamburgers grow?
  • Web of Life (not recommended for pre-school or kindergarten)

Also included on all field trips is a ride on our historic Virginia Carousel.  The class will choose plants to take back to school for a school garden or other projects.  Students will have free time to play as schedule allows. Our Barnyard play area will be available (see attractions), plus the Underground Slide, farm animals, and more.
