Here’s the details

Field trip rate is only available to public and private school groups however all must have at least 25 students to qualify.
Please schedule your arrival time between 9:00 am – 10:30 am. Allow at least 3-4 hours for all activities.
Only students are to be included in the headcount. Please! No adults or extra guests!

Field Trip Guest Policy
Due to an issue in past years, we have been forced to create a Field Trip Guest Policy. Teachers…please make your parents aware of the following:
Parents and siblings are welcome as guests but are NOT counted in the school headcount. All guests that are not school faculty members or field trip students are required to pay general admission and are required to stay with the school class and not wonder off, or they will be asked to leave the farm. If a guest signs out a student from a teacher, said guest and student are no longer allowed to stay at the farm on their own. Our weekdays are for school field trips reserved through school faculty only.
3 & under: Free
4 & up: $10 + tax
Season Passes may be used here
Lunch & Shopping
Concessions are NOW available on field trip days at the Miner’s Shack for parents and teachers, however you are still welcome to bring a sack lunch. We will have chuckwagon soda, hot beverages, nachos, soft pretzels, mini donuts, and cotton candy available.
