Hands-on learning experiences are always best when students have been prepared for what they are about to encounter. Our field trips feature a learning experience focused on the life cycle of corn (etc), with unique, fun, educational activities that expose children to agriculture. Many are combined with farm adventures, such as: corn maze exploration, hayrides, pumpkin patches, etc.
