Fall | Get lost in our maze! Learn about “Spookley, the Square Pumpkin” and get lesson plans/activity sheets about pumpkins for your classroom. Each student gets a perk to take home!

Winter | It’s a Christmas themed adventure with a story book trail featuring “Mistletoe and the Christmas Kittens“. Plus, students get a small bag of Kettle Corn and teachers get a copy of the book!

Picnic Area

Picnic area

We have a lovely shady picnic area for students (and visitors) who brown-bag it to munch a lunch!

Country Store & Sweet Shoppe

Open during field trip hours! Browse for gifts, books, fudge, jarred goods, roasted nuts, teeshirts and more.

Photo Props

Fun props around the farm offer a great place to take photo memories of your class’s fun at the farm.

Yum! We've got pizza!

Don’t want to brown-bag it? We have fresh-out-of-the-oven farm made pepperoni pizza! Each 14-inch pizza can be cut into 8 or 16 slices. Order pizza for your class when you make your field trip reservation — only $14 each.

U-Pick Strawberries
Take your class through the ‘berry patch’ to see strawberries growing and pick them! We provide a 32 oz souvenir cup to take their berries home in.  Add $6.00 — includes a couple of berries munched in the field!

Gem Stone Mining
Students get a bag of mining rough and a bag to bring home the gems they find — plus a map showing where gems originated! The Alva Lee Mining Station is our most popular add-on.  Extra $5.00

Easter Egg Hunts
We can also host an Easter Egg Hunt for your class! You provide the plastic eggs and have someone from your group hide them in a grassy area for your class. No extra fee.

Good to know …

You can check our calendar for field trip date availability, then make your reservation online! If the date/time that you want doesn’t have enough space for your entire group, you may make a another reservation in another time slot on that day. Your group will be together!

Our Concession Stand is open during field trips for adults only to purchase food. You may choose from items such as BBQ brisket burgers, hotdogs, nachos, Fritoe pies, sausage-on-a-bun, chips and various drinks.
