Fall Farm Adventures

Oxbow’s guided 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 learn their function, then harvest and eat them! Students even get to participate in a real farm project: collecting and sorting seeds! Students tour the Kids’ Farm in small groups with their own farmer educator and take home a sugar pie pumpkin. To get more information about our Fall Farm Adventures, you can access our at-a-glance program outline to plan ahead. 

Highlights

  • Learn about plant structures and their function in making energy for themselves and the animals that eat them!
  • On a snacking tour through the farm fields, harvest tasty fruits and vegetables, including pulling your own carrot right from the organic soil!
  • Discover how new life emerges at the end of a plant’s life cycle while collecting and sorting colorful and unique seeds, and even find a seed to taste!

Cost

Large Groups: If your group is larger than 50, follow the step by step instructions on how to register HERE.

Chaperones: We do not charge adults to chaperone along with student groups. If chaperones would like to bring a younger sibling who will NOT be participating in programming (babes in arms or younger toddlers), they may come at no additional charge. If a younger sibling is able to participate in tasting, exploring, and taking home a pumpkin, then we ask that they be included in the student head count with payment handled through your child’s teacher or field trip coordinator.
