School Field Trips to the Farm

time for a day trip!

Are you looking to get your students outside and engaged with nature and agriculture?

Field trip programs at Fernbrook Farms are the perfect way to let your students explore their natural curiosities while acquiring new knowledge.

At Fernbrook we strive to make time outside of the classroom memorable, meaningful, and relevant to your students’ learning (and fun, too). We all experience awe and wonder when we discover the amazing things that happen outdoors– at Fernbrook, your students will have the opportunity to do just that. We want your students to enjoy the magic of nature and dig in through engaging activities and inquiry.

Each field trip at Fernbrook is organized so that your students learn outdoors in small groups of 10-15. Your students will work with our seasoned environmental educators to dive deep and discover a number of topics that occur at the intersection of nature and agriculture. Programs are available for school groups as small as 10 and as large as about 120.

Below are descriptions of some of our most popular programs, but feel free to call and discuss ways we can tailor our programs to fit your classroom needs. Each of the following programs are available for students at many different grade levels. Please call our office at (609) 298-4028 or email Kim Barlieb, Director of School Programs, at [email protected] for more information or to book.

"I cannot think of one way to improve upon a perfect field trip. The staff anticipated our needs and had supplies ready. Their patience with the class showed the students that the staff valued them and their opinions, questions, and sometimes rambling on. Thank you for a day well spent."
