Fall Farm Adventures

Our guided Fall Farm Adventures take kids through our fields on a scavenger hunt for the six plant parts, roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits, and seeds. When we find the plant parts, we harvest and eat them! Kids tour the Kids’ Farm in small groups with their own farmer educator and take home a sugar pie pumpkin.

The Pumpkin Package

Interested in MORE inspired Oxbow Education? Sign up for the Pumpkin Package and get a deal!

The Pumpkin Package is a three-part series that allows your class to discover how Oxbow changes throughout the seasons.

The program unfolds over the course of a school year. It begins with a fall visit to the farm, followed by a winter farmer visit to your school, and ends with a return visit to Oxbow in the springtime. The three progressive lessons help students understand how nature’s cycles mimic the changing seasons, and how people are connected to the earth through the food that we eat.

Here’s the deal: Fall field trip + winter farmer visit = 50% off your spring field trip
