FIELD TRIPS &

ON FARM

IEDUCATION PROGRAMS

Group Presentations:

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!

 

Fall Curriculums:

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.
