Self-Guided Group Tours

NEW EXPANDED PROGRAM! Accredited schools, preschools, year-round day cares, parent's-day-out programs and non-school youth groups who desire an educational outing at your own pace can register for a self-guided tour of the farm. We assign your group a time to attend a wagon ride, but the rest of the day is an on-your-own adventure.

During your groups visit you will have access to all of the Farm's most popular attractions, including a bucket of feed for the animals. Additionally, you may reserve picnic table seating for your group at no extra charge.

Additionally, your group may request to sit in on an educational program if one has been scheduled on the day of your visit. Information regarding program availability and class times may be requested during group check-in.

Teacher Resources:

Hands-on learning experiences are always best when students have been prepared for what they are about to encounter and are able to then discuss what they learn afterwards.


We are pleased to offer grade-level appropriate PowerPoint presentations, worksheets and activities for each educational program offered at the Farm. They are designed to support -

  • Understanding cells
  • Interdependence
  • Flow of matter and energy
  • Heredity
  • Biodiversity
