Pumpkin Patch Field Trip
When fall is in the air, it’s time to enjoy a day on the farm at the Pumpkin Patch Field Trip, the most popular educational program among schools, family groups, scouts, daycare centers and church organizations. Start with a straw-filled, tractor-pulled hayride bumping down the lane past pastures, stables, horses, the greenhouse and pond. Then, the children head to the Petting Farm to visit the animals in their fall habitat, which includes a giant haystack and playground! Then, off to the pumpkin patch, where children select their very own pumpkin to take home. Finally, don’t forget to bring your lunch or snack to enjoy on the farm. Every child will be provided with a bag to hold their pumpkin. No outside bags are permitted. Adults may purchase pumpkins at the farm market. Pumpkin patch field trips are approximately 90 minutes and require reservations.
