Harvest Field Trip (Fall)

Harvest Field Trips

 

Bring your class to a working farm for an educational tour that meets state education standards for grades K-5. We grow a wide variety of vegetables and fruits, from strawberries, to tomatoes, to pumpkins, to collard greens. It’s our goal to teach children about real life applications of what they’re learning in school, from science to social studies. For middle school aged students, in addition to science and social studies, we focus on mathematics, economics, and the importance of ELA for effective business ownership and marketing.

What’s Included:   

  • Learning stations:

A hayride wagon tour of the farm,where students learn about seasons and different crops that grow on our farm (Science K-5)
