FIELD TRIP ACTIVITIES

Pumpkin Patch Field trip icons

Pick-Your-Own Pumpkin - (allow 30 minutes)
The Pumpkin Patch covers almost 5 acres with more Pumpkins than you can count. Field Trips include a visit to the huge patch where you can select a pumpkin of any size or the smaller-sized Kid's Patch, perfect for the younger ones. Additional pumpkins can be purchased at the time.


Children's Garden nutrition lesson

Farm Kids Fun Zone- (allow 20 minutes)
We have expanded the popular Farm Kids Ag Activity Area with larger Squash Tunnels, a Hay Pyramid, Games and a Mini Corn Maze (difficulty level: low).


Petting Farm - (allow 30 minutes)
Children love learning about our friendly farm animals that include sheep, several breeds of goats and rabbits. Learn what they eat, their unusual teeth and other ways animals are unique from people.


Big Corn Maze - (allow 20 minutes)
The Corn Maze is full of twisting paths designed to confuse and confound, but be assured - there is a way out! (difficulty level: challenging)


Children’s Garden - (allow 20 minutes)
The Children's Garden is a fun place to learn about how our food grows. It includes a Healthy Eats nutrition program and a gooey Pumpkin Dissection all in a Fall setting.


Tractor pulled Hay Ride

Hay Wagon Ride & Farm Tour - (allow 20 minutes)
Climb aboard the antique tractor-pulled wagon ride for a tour of discovery farm at AGRIscapes and it’s a great place for a group photo op!
* Due to the hands-on learning environment of these field trips, groups may need to be split into smaller groups of 25 or less.
