Spring Field Trips
There’s a lot to do and see on the farm!
On our spring farm field trips we give a farm talk to learn about the habitat of our farm and the equipment we use, plant pumpkins for the fall harvest, spend time viewing our farm animals, experience the fun of a tractor pulled hayride and check out the bees making honey.
We have active bee hives here at the farm. Our bees have the important job of pollinating our pumpkins and apple trees. Bees are very interesting creatures and we give a short talk on their lifespan and niche in the natural world.
Bring your group out to the farm in the spring to help plant the pumpkins. Your group gets to go out into the field with a farmer and plant a row of pumpkin seeds. Then, we label this row and in the fall when you come back for a fall farm tour, you can pick the pumpkins that you planted.
This is a real education for children; they get to see how real farmers work!
We enjoy sharing the diversity of the farm ecosystem with pre-school and elementary school children in our spring farm tours. We think it is important for the children to connect back with the land and gain some basic knowledge of the natural world.
On our farm we have many animals: pigs, a llama, alpacas, cows, goats, rabbits, turkeys, chickens and more! Children love to check out the farm animals and the animals love the attention!

Notes for School Buses
Sometimes school buses coming from the south prefer to avoid the hard curves of Old Cornelius Pass Road below the farm.
An alternate route is to take Cornelius Pass Road to the top of the hill at Skyline Boulevard, turning left/west. Then turn left/south at the quick stop sign and then turn right into the driveway a quarter mile from the last turn.
