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 40+ 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 has been a difficult year for many, especially for all of our local and tri-state schools. We miss seeing the excitement on the faces of the students when they arrive and watching them have a fun-filled day exploring the farm. Since COVID-19 has stopped the personal hands-on learning this year, we would like to share the farm experience with classrooms virtually! We have created a video featuring our educational "Talk Time" along with a flyover tour of the farm. To access our virtual field trip visit: https://youtu.be/Q_Au6qdklr8 We can't wait to see everyone next year!
