Fall School Field Trips
(Scroll to bottom for info on our Family/Homeschool/Small Group Day on October 7th!)
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!
2022 field trips will begin booking in early August
When are 2022 school field trips?
Oct 3rd - Nov 11th

What's included? How is a typical field trip day structured?
Students and teachers will rotate through 4 stations:
Our kid size corn maze with educational trivia - each year our unique maze can be a fun challenge!
Younger age groups: An interactive story time session of "Spookley the Square Pumpkin" who teaches a very important lesson about bullying.
