Fall School Field Trips

(Scroll to bottom for info on Homeschool/Small Group Day!)

At Sweet Season Farms, we believe it's important that the heritage and dynamics of agriculture is something that all children have the chance to be exposed to.  It just so happens that we're able to help accomplish that goal in a fun and unique way. We invite you to bring your students to come get lost in our classroom in the corn!
