For Teachers: Field Trip Tips/Resources
When you check in, please have the following information available:
- The total number of students with you — so we can have your perks ready for you at the end of your visit.
- The total number of parents that your payment covers — so we can give you the correct number of admission stickers.
- The total number of teachers, aids and bus drivers — so we can provide the correct number of stickers for their admission.
Note: The coupons for free return tickets that we give students attending a field trip at CM Farms [or] tickets won on the radio and TV apply ONLY to weekend admission. They cannot be used for field trip admission for students, parents or siblings.
Please have ONE person pay for all attending the field trip, students and parents. We understand if your school doesn’t accept parent money. If that is the case, parents can pay once they arrive. If they pay here, it will $10.00 plus tax. Checks should be made out to CMFarms, LLC.

Classroom in the Corn
Our field trips feature a learning experience focused on life on the farm, with unique, fun, educational activities that expose children to agriculture. Many are combined with farm adventures, such as: corn maze, exploration, wagon rides, etc.
Hands-on learning experiences are always best when students have been prepared for what they are about to encounter and are able to then discuss what they learned afterwards. We are pleased to offer our Classroom in the Corn learning series to make your field trip more exciting and memorable … as well as a better learning experience. These Teacher Resource Guides are broken into separate grade ranges and each include: activity goals, National Curriculum Standards, preparation required, materials needed, worksheets, and step-by-step instructions. View a sample of that curriculum.
