Information for Teachers - Field Trip Reference

Our field trips create a positive educational experience emphasizing up-close encounters, fun for all ages, in a clean, safe learning environment. Children learn a respect for the animals as they witness their beauty, their characteristics and observe their behaviors first hand. We teach about agriculture and the work farmers do to feed the world.  We teach about food sources and other products from the farm.

Teachers are always welcome to visit the farm BEFORE your students’ trip. Call us today to arrange a visit.  (616) 748-1110
