We are continually growing and making improvements. We strive to make every year a different experience from the past year. Book your fall field trip today. The booking site will ask for a credit card.  The card will be charged $50 to hold your reservation.  Since reservations are limited, there is a $50 fee if trip is cancelled less than 1 week prior to trip, otherwise this amount will be credited to your reservation.  Please read our rain policy on the booking page prior to booking your trip.

We send each confirmed group curriculum information to prepare your group for the field trip. This includes the rules, organizational information, and structure of activities to prepare the students for the adventure. We recommend using this material to make your day and your student's trip more enjoyable.

We have plenty of bus parking. We have real bathrooms and running water. Also we have picnic areas, gift shop etc. We are always adding new play areas and improvements to our farm. Come join us to see what's new this year! We are in the country, but within easy bus ride of most schools. See our map and directions.
