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 container 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 Calf-A 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.
