Children's Farmyard Group Visits
Requests for Children’s Farmyard Visits are accepted on a rolling basis.
Give your students or camp groups a hands-on opportunity to discover the important role that farms play in their lives with a visit to the Children’s Farmyard.
Children’s Farmyard Visits are self-guided: You are free to explore at your own pace! Hands-on activities such as hand milking a cow or making wool bracelets are offered every half hour beginning with the Chicken Parade at 10:30. You may participate in any or all of these activities. Teachers, chaperones, and students can also explore cheese making, the hiking trails, and visit the O Bread bakery.
Groups typically visit for ~2 hours, but are welcome to spend as much time as desired in educational exploration. There are plenty of spaces to picnic!
Autumn in the Farmyard is a great time to schedule a farmyard visit! At this quieter time of year, you’ll enjoy more personal attention from our Farmyard Educators. A fall field trip is a unique and meaningful way to kick off the school year!
The Children’s Farmyard is open from mid-May to mid-October. Scheduled groups receive a discounted group rate of $4/student, teachers free, and $5/chaperone.
