Fall Field Trips

School Field Trips

Offering educational field trips to pre-school and elementary age students is a priority for us at 4D Farm.  We believe it's important that the heritage and dynamics of agriculture is something that all children have the chance to be exposed to.  It just so happens that we are able to help accomplish that goal in a fun and unique way.  We invite you to bring your students to come get lost in our classroom in the corn!  (Corn maze is only available in the fall)

 

When Are Fall Field Trips?

Field trips are available for school groups September 26 - November 2 on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings. Field trips will  not be scheduled on Columbus Day.  

 

What is Included on a Fall Field Trip?

Each field trip includes:                                             
Online curriculum materials for you to share with your students either before of after a visit to our farm.  These materials are available by download using a special passcode.                   
Educational lesson provided on Pumpkins and How They Grow, The Buzz on Bees, and Chickens on 4D Farm.  Teachers and parents will also have many self guided educational opportunities on the farm.   
Students will visit the farm animals.   We will discuss what the animals provide and how we care for the animals. All students will get a hayride to the pumpkin patch.  Each student will receive a pie pumpkin included in his/her field trip price.  Large pumpkins may be purchased but are not included in the price of the field trip.
 

While we value education and want all children to learn on their visit, we also like to have FUN!  Students will receive one ride on the cow train, a trip down our 80 ft slide, and a turn on Johnny Popper (Our HUGE jumper)  for each student, a racing pig show, play in our 2 story play barn, ball hops, spider web, swings, hay jumps, corn bins, and much more!

 

Don't Forget The Corn Maze!

Students will enjoy finding their way through phase one of our corn maze.  We will have Spookley the Square Pumpkin displayed on storyboards throughout phase one of our maze.  Chaperones will have the opportunity to share the story of Spookley and discuss the importance of being kind to others.  Please DO NOT enter phase 2 of the maze during the field trip.   
 

Each Student will Receive

A small pumpkin                                                      
A voucher for a free return visit to 4D Farm for each student!  (this is for fall field
