Let us be the hands-on part of your farm, earth, recycling, or outdoor camp experience this summer. We can help reinforce Virginia SOLs by discussing seeds, water cycles, and solar energy in our greenhouse. Students will plant seeds to take home and grow their own sunflowers. We tailor each presentation to the age of the students. After the greenhouse tour, hop on the wagon and ride out to the pick-your-own fields so your students can experience life on the farm as they pick a fruit or vegetable to take home.
Don’t forget to exercise gross motor skills by visiting our 5-acre play area! Our 2800 sq. ft. Pumpkin Jumpin’ Pillow, Double Barrel 80-foot slides, pedal cart track, and rope swings will make your heart race! You can become a Maze Master by challenging each of our four mazes. See who can climb up the Rubber Ridge tractor tire mountain the fastest, or go for a romp in our Corn Bin. Summer camp groups are welcome to spend the whole day at the farm and max out their enjoyment in the farm play area.
The Garden Field Trip (mid June-mid September) is $9 per person, and includes:
- Wagon ride tour of the farm
- Pick-your-own visit to one of our produce fields or orchards to pick a fruit or vegetable to take home
- Greenhouse tour & sunflower planting educational tour

- Gross motor work-out in our farm play area after your tour
With each field trip, one bus driver and one teacher receive complimentary admission for every 15 students, with a minimum of 15 students. We are here rain or shine, and there are several covered areas available to shelter your group from inclement weather. Tours are available Tuesdays – Fridays.
Let us provide hotdogs for lunch so you can save time going back and forth from the bus and spend it enjoying your field trip and educational tour experience!
Please being water for your group. We strongly recommend a large cooler with cups.
You can also combine this tour with our GEM TOUR for only $14 per person. We recommend a minimum of three hours to complete a combo field trip.
