Field Trips to the farm can be adventures all within themselves. But they can lead more specifically to adventures in learning, as children explore their relationship with agriculture.
One of our goals is to create an atmosphere that can make learning be fun. To achieve this goal, your help is needed. Through a loving supervision of the children and your cooperation with our staff; we wish to partner with you so that the children's experience will be a positive and lasting one.
Another goal is to have Field Trip Adventures complement what is being taught in the classroom. We can even customize your Adventure under your direction as you share with us your ideas via the online reservation page.
Please note that all of the field trip adventures complement the Colorado Curriculum Standards in history, geography and science and that they are subject to fruit availability.
