Upon Your Arrival

One week prior to your trip, you will be emailed a final farm guest count form. Please complete this before you arrive. A friendly Farm staff member will collect the form when you check-in. This helps to speed up the check-in process and assists with a smooth and speedy start to your field trip.

Before arriving please have your students divided up into chaperoned groups. We suggest a ratio of one adult to every 6 students for your visit. Younger children might require a higher ratio.

When you arrive at the Farm, you will be greeted by our friendly farm staff in the parking lot. As everyone disembarks from the bus, students should place their lunches in the bin designated for your summer camp or school group. If your school has its own lunch bins, you are welcome to use them, but please make sure your school name is on them! Our Farm Hands will deliver your lunches to a designated lunch tent.

While the children are getting off the bus, teacher(s) checking in the group should proceed to the admission windows. Once financials are taken care of and your group is ready to begin, our friendly staff will get you all on your way to the first adventure.

Admission Payment

The organizing teacher needs an accurate count of how many students, how many staff, how many parents, and how many if any siblings ages 3 and up are attending the field trip.

Fall field trip adventure admission is $10 per student, parent chaperones and tag-a-long siblings
Summer camp adventure admission is $10.25 per camper

Staff (teachers, aides, camp counselors and bus drivers) are free

For a faster check in please collect money from all students, parents and siblings.

We accept cash, checks, major credit cards, school purchase orders and vouchers. After settling with admission, gather your group together (divided into chaperoned groups), one of our friendly Farm Hands will get you started on your first adventure. From there, you are free to explore the farm as a self-guided tour!  If you have questions, please call us (518) 664-1515.
