WE CAN'T WAIT TO TEACH YOU

With 3 acres of barns, gardens, and animals, as well as lots of hands-on experiences, demonstrations, and activities, Critter Barn provides a wealth of fun and learning opportunities for every age.

 

There's no comparing the awe-inspiring experiences of a real farm visit to a typical day in the classroom. Bring your group to the farm or book a traveling farm for a memorable day of discovery and exploration.  

 

Our Field trips are aligned with State of Michigan Benchmarks in Life Sciences and Social Studies. Students will enjoy group presentations and experience interactive learning.

 

We would be happy to work with you to achieve a project-based learning activity with your students. Please call ahead. 616.748.1110.
