Farm Tour - Preschool to 1st Grade

Awaken your senses with a hands-on exploration of our working farm!  Students meet farm animals face to face and experience the colors, scents and tastes of the organic Education Garden.  Whether sinking fingers into a sheep’s wool “sweater,” feeling the warmth of a freshly laid egg, or crunching into a root just pulled from the ground, students begin to appreciate the importance of the farm and garden in their daily lives.   

Program Capacity
We can accomodate 64 students or a maximum of 82 people total. If you have a group that varies slightly from these numbers, please CONTACT US. We will divide the students into small groups of 10-15 students to explore the farm. Groups for exceeding these maximum limits may need to visit Hidden Villa on multiple days or register for both the 9:15am and 11:00am tours on a particular date. 

Fees
$10/person September - November

$8/person December - February
$11/person March - June

Farm Tours are priced per participant. The number of adults you register should include the number of teachers planning on accompanying the trip. For every 15 children, you are entitled to 1 free adult registration. For instance, a group of 60 students includes 4 adults free of charge.
