Summer Farm Adventures


ed banner vertical

We play host, in the heat of July and August, to many local summer day camp field trips. Our summer farm field trips are guided, 75-minute farm tours. Kids explore 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!

Who: Preschool – 5th grade

When:  Monday – Friday

July 5-8; July 18-22; August 1-5; August 22-26

9:30am, 11am, and 12:30am

*please contact us if these times do not work for your group.

Cost: $120 minimum for up to 15 students. Groups larger than fifteen are welcome, but there is an additional, graduated cost.


  • Explore the Children’s Garden & play games in our Living Playground
  • Harvest and eat whatever’s around! No promises, but tours often include apples, grapes, carrots, rhubarb, beans, and other seasonal veggies and herbs.
  • Sing songs, explore, and ask questions to your personal farmer guide
  • Stay for lunch at our outdoor picnic tables
