Tours can be 1 or 2 hours long, with additional time for a picnic lunch if desired.
All group visits during the strawberry season cost $5.00 per student. Two free chaperones for every ten students.
Tour groups will be greeted and given a 20 minute lesson in the yard, then taken to the field. Each student will receive a quart container to label with their name. They may pick a quart of berries as well as taste some out in the field.
A wagon ride will be provided ONLY if it isn’t too busy at the front desk.
Students are the responsibility of the chaperones after the 20 minute tour.
School groups may use the picnic area and play with the animals, but please be respectful of our other guests!
Groups are also welcome to come off season to enjoy the farm. Sarah is a licenced teacher with experience at every grade level.
All age groups will be given a wagon ride, a small snack of jam and pretzels, and time to play with the baby animals.
