FIELD TRIPS &
We are pleased to talk with any Gardening Group, Master Gardeners, Ladies Group, Church Organization or Farmers/Growers about our farm. Topics of discussion can vary from how we got started and the growth of our business, to growing and maintaining our summer garden, plants/annuals, or our 30+ acre pumpkin, squash and gourd crop. Reservations are required in advance to schedule a talk with us.
School & Home School Field Trips:
On any given fall morning at Harvestville Farm, you'll see the sights and hear the sounds of children laughing, learning and playing. Offering educational field trips to pre-school and elementary age students has long been a priority for us here at the farm. It just so happens that we're able to help accomplish that goal in a fun and unique way. Our educational field trips have been structured through the knowledge we have obtained of being a 5th generation farm, along with the additional educational guidance from one of the owners being a certified educator. Our unique and interactive field trips are loaded with lots of fun and hands-on educational experiences. Click HERE to schedule your class field trip this fall.
NEW Virtual Field Trip:
As we all know, 2020 was a difficult year for everyone, especially for our local and tri-state schools. We missed seeing students this past fall and the excitement they would bring with them when they would arrive and go about their fun-filled day on the farm. Since COVID-19 stopped the personal hands-on learning this past year and with the potential of some schools limiting or restricting field trips once again this fall, Harvestville Farm would like to, once again, share the farm experience with classrooms virtually for those schools who are unable to visit us in person. The following video was created to bring our educational "Talk Time" directly to students, along with a flyover tour of the farm. To access our virtual field trip visit: https://youtu.be/Q_Au6qdklr8
Fall Curriculums are now available for our educators. Each curriculum was designed and written by one of the owners who is also a certified educator. Each curriculum is LOADED with a variety of agriculture activities that are appropriate for ages K-5th grade. Hard copy and digital curriculums available are: All About Pumpkins, The Importance of Bees, Life on a Farm, and Get Lost in the Corn. Curriculums are $10 each or $35 for all four. To purchase a curriculum please contact us via email or at 319-470-1558.
* It is very important to us that all students feel comfortable and have a positive learning experience at our farm. Additional Hands-On Activities are available to any parent/educator to assist and enhance the learning experience of any child/student with special needs. Please feel free to inquire about these services upon your visit.
