2016 Weekday Fall Educational Farm Tours for Schools & Groups
Come learn about farming and experience where food comes from. Jim and Sue Giamarese are third generation farmers and would like to teach young folks an appreciation for the land and agriculture.
1. Your Educational Hayride Tour consists of Farmer Jim making stops around the farm to explain how fruits and vegetables are grown including hands-on experience when possible. One stop will be with the farm animals, including horses, pigs, turkeys, chickens, ducks and swans as available. Duration: approximately 20-30 minutes.
2. Afterwards, participants will experience picking four apples from the tree and/or one 2-5 pound sugar pumpkin from the field. Each child will receive an educational coloring workbook at the conclusion of the tour. Participants who only pick a pumpkin will receive one apple from their teacher. Additional apples, pumpkins and coloring books may be purchased at the Farm Market.
3. The final count of all attendees may be made on the day of your tour. Payment must be submitted at the Farm Market on the day of your tour.
At the Farm Market, we have fruits, vegetables, baked goods, jam, gourds, ice cream, mums, cornstalks, straw bales, Indian corn and other fall decorations and treats.
