Field Trips

Learning is fun on the Farm

Things to Do

Enjoy the whole farm (weather permitting) on your field trip! We will have an educational session designed for your class, about corn, pumpkins and/or soybeans. Lessons are based on national standards.

Students will hunt for the perfect pumpkin in our Pumpkin Patch — and they can take that pumpkin home! Other programs can be history or geography of Tennessee, hayride to the Fairy Tale Trail, an interactive soybean maze. If you choose the option with the corn maze, students can explore 12 acres of paths in the corn!

We also feature Spookley, the Square Pumpkin. He teaches lessons on tolerance and kindness, and he is the national symbol for the campaign against bullying in schools.
