Group Tours

Tacos: Straight from the Farm

Tours Available April - July 
Call or e-mail us to schedule.



 Looking for the chance to connect hands-on with learning?
Join us this spring as we
make "Tacos Straight from the Farm."

We will grind the corn and make a tortilla.
Then "squish" the tomatoes, peppers, onions and spices to make an amazing-smelling salsa.
We will learn some history of the taco and talk about the healthy food choices in this meal.

(Do you teach older elementary or even Middle or High school?  Call us--we know that we can help you connect a visit to the farm with an educational opportunity and give your students to be "kids" again too.  )

After we "make tacos" from the garden, we will plant some crops in the garden then head off on the hayride to find some animals to feed! 



If you are a school group we will connect the trip to the farm to those lessons you are learning in the classroom.

If you are a family looking for a day on the farm, we will give you a chance to see what the farmer does so that food is in the grocery store or the restaurants.

Regardless of your group, we will make the experience on the farm educational and fun!

Group Farm Tour Prices
  • $8.00 per student & $5.00 for parents (school teachers and staff are free)

Spring and summer tours include the following:

Story Time

We will talk about the history of our theme food and the ingredients that farmers grow for that food.  As part of the story we look for lessons in the garden that encourage us to make positive choices in our lives.  These are scenes from 2009 as we grew tacos on the farm.

Planting

Spring: We will take you into the garden and let you help us plant seeds or plants according to the garden schedule.

Summer:  We will go to the garden and either plant a late crop or we begin harvesting the crops planted by our earlier visitors.


Tractor Wagon Ride


Travel around the farm as we visit farm animals at another barn.        






Feeding the Animals

Help feed and pet the animals.  We will provide grain for the animals to eat and often times a bottle to feed to a baby calf. Also, don't forget to come and see our new additions.



  
            
                             
                                      

Plant Your Own Seeds

We will help each person plant seeds (usually pumpkin or sunflower seeds) in a small container to grow in their backyard.

Playtime

No trip to the farm is complete without playtime.  The corn truck will be available for children to play in like a giant sandbox.  We encourage removing shoes as one step into the corn box and shoes are full of corn!

There are ample areas for playing ball or other games teachers may want to do to encourage expending energy!  We keep a supply of balls available for our visitors' use.   The tricycle track will be available as well as a small swing set for our youngest visitors. Check out our playground page for full details.

Lunchtime

Picnic areas are available for your use.  Visitors need to bring their food, but we have water and lemonade available for our guests at no charge.  Sodas, bottled water, and snack food are available for purchase.

A group tour typically takes 1.5 to 2 hours for the guided part of the tour, depending on the size of the group.  You should allow extra time for playtime and for lunchtime.  We try to schedule groups so that you have ample opportunity to play and enjoy the picnic are.  Depending on the time of your tour, your playtime and/or lunchtime might occur before your tour.  That can be discussed at the time we schedule your tour.

Restroom Facility

Check out our modern "old" facilities. It may look like an outhouse, but you'll be pleasantly surprised at the conveniences in an old farm building.
