Spring on the Farm Field Trips: April 9-25, 2024

Discovery Farm Field Trips

Thanks to its sunny weather and fertile soil, California is the #1 state in the nation in agriculture production. The mission of the Discovery Farm field trips is to offer visitors a chance to experience this first hand and gain appreciation for the influence of farming on everyday life

The Petting Farm - Get up close and personal with Oreo and his friends while experiencing how animals provide food so we can grow up strong and smart, as well as provide fiber like wool to keep us warm and dry

Wagon Tour - Learn about the history of the Huntley College of Agriculture and how our farm operations provide Cal Poly Pomona students with learn-by-doing opportunities and produce some of the most sought-after graduates by industry leaders. 

Children’s Garden - What better way to experience agriculture than by playing in the dirt!  Visit our newly expanded Children’s Garden and explore the life cycle of plants, how some creepy crawlies actually help plants grow and that tasty helps us grow healthy and smart!

Pick Your Own - Enjoy the fruits of our labor!  Pick fresh produce and taste the difference with our expanded strawberry garden and revived vegetable fields.

Update 3/5/24: Thanks to a record response, field trip reservations are now completely FULL.
