Field Trips to the Farm
Every year thousands of school children visit the farm for an opportunity to learn about where their food and fiber come from.  The sound of a rooster crowing, the feel of the sheep's wool, and actually milking a cow, teaches children so much more than a textbook.
Spring Tours

Spring tours on the farm begin May 1, 2017.  Tours include a 30 minute hayride
, a walk in the woods on our storybook trail, picnic tables inside and outside for lunch, 2 playgrounds, Sheep Barn, Horse Barn, Cow Barn, and Poultry yards, and free parking.

Farm Show 
Kindergarten students and older will attend a 45 minute farm showEveryone will sit on bleachers inside a barn and the presentation by the farmers will include making butter, sheering the sheep, spinning wool, and an explanation of all the animals relationship to the children.

Walking Tours
  Preschoolers and special needs children will go on a 30 - 40 minute guided tour of the farm lead by a farmer.  Groups of 50 or less.  Larger groups will be split into multiple groups.  Much of the same information in the farm show will be presented by your tour guide, but this tour is designed for a hands-on experience for younger children with shorter attention spans.  It will include milking a cow, petting the animals, and moving from place to place keeping the children's attention.
 
 















 
 
 

The cost is $9.00 per person.  Teachers are free (1 per 25 students).  Parking is also free.

Give us enough time!  To do all of the above, it will take 2.5 to 3 hours.  Groups staying longer will find plenty to do on the playgrounds.  Without eating lunch at the farm, our program can be completed in less time.  Our front gate opens at 8:30 a.m.  The farmers will be ready to serve you by 9:00 a.m.  If your time is limited, the earlier your group arrives, the easier it is for us to accommodate your group.

Reservations are required.

This is the first stop for all teachers.

Summer Tours
 
During the months of July and August many schools and camps have expressed interest in a farm tour.  Upland Hills Farm Day Camp runs during the summer months also and uses the same facilities.  We ask groups to arrive at 11:00 a.m.  A hayride will be first, followed by lunch.  When groups have finished eating, our campers have left for their afternoon at the lake and the farmers are available to give groups a walking tour
of the farm.
A minimum
group size of 20 people is required.  Tours are available on Tuesday or Wednesday only.

The cost is $9.00 per person.
