    Whether Spring, Summer, or Fall, historic 325 acre Johnsons Locust Hall Farm is the perfect classroom for groups to enjoy a fun, hands-on STEM learning experience about the science and history of farming agriculture and technology.

    In order to reinforce the STEM concepts participants learned at the farm all group leaders will receive a follow-up lesson plan.

    Everyone also brings home the delicious produce that they picked from our fields in which the very first iron plow was demonstrated over 200 years ago!

    EARLY SPRING FIELD TRIPS (May 1st-May 18th) The spring season kicks off our year with our Farm School Hayride. This trip was developed to teach children how plants grow, how to care for them and how to appreciate farming. This farm lesson is conducted in one of our historic barns with a variety of seeds the children can plant. Each child plants seeds and learns how to care for them at home. We love to see future farmers at work! This trip also includes a Farm tour and explanation of what is going on at the farm in the spring.

    SPRING FIELD TRIPS ( May 18th- June 21st) Spring time on the farm is one of our favorite times of the year!  The air is crisp and refreshing, flowers are in bloom, the wildlife is active and some the first crops of year are becoming readily available for harvest.  By mid-May, we typically have strawberries, snap peas, radishes, and spinach!  June 4th is when the raspberries will begin to ripen and not long after that is when we typically start to harvest blackberries. Get your farmer hands ready for picking and minds ready for learning!

    SUMMER FIELD TRIPS (June 21st-Aug 26th) 
    Enjoy morning farm activities and a unique Farm learning experience. Start the day off with a hayride tour around the farm & Pick your own seasonal crops.

Followed by Lunchtime which takes place in our historic barns and afterwards the ice cream is on us! available to summer camps, organized summer groups, or a group of friends looking for a true farm experience.
