Field Trip Tips & Pointers:

  1. Please ensure that your group arrives for check in 15 minutes prior to your event start time. Late arrivals will still be held to the designated departure time listed on their event contract. (Example: Arrival time is 9:00am. Group arrives at 9:30am. The group will begin where their itinerary shows them at 9:30am.)
  2. Please bring the appropriate completed Waiver Form with your group upon arrival. The Waiver Form is attached to the deposit invoice upon booking or emailed to the group organizer. Groups will not be allowed to begin their field trip until this Waiver Form is received.
  3. Additional family members are welcome to join their student’s learning experience with the permission of the school/organization. Family members must check in separately from their student and pay the same admission as the student + tax, unless the individual also carries a tax exemption. Family members who arrive late MUST check in before entering the farm. Individuals who enter the farm without permission during a field trip will be asked to leave.
  4. Food & Drink: Groups and participants are more than welcome to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy at any of our many outdoor eating areas. We do not have drinking fountains, but we do have bottled water, soda, and juice for purchase. Please email [email protected] with any group food service questions or needs.
