Spring Field Trips

Get Your Farmer Hands Ready for Picking and Minds Ready for Learning

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 of the first crops of the year are becoming readily available for harvest. By early May, we typically have radishes, strawberries, & snap peas.

Planting Demo &
Picking Farm Tour
(Early May to Mid June)

The spring season kicks off our year with our Planting Demo & Picking Farm Tour. 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 hayride to our fields to pick a quart of radishes (early May) or a pint of strawberries (late May to June).
