It’s our learning barn! Students will be treated to displays on corn, cotton, pumpkins, sunflowers, satsuma oranges and farm animals. They will also have the opportunity to “milk” our wooden cow props. Educational videos are shown, time permitting.
Upon arriving at the farm, students will be given an overview of the rules and the general schedule of the day. Teachers will be given a copy of the rotation sequence and advised where to begin. We reserve the right to remove any child (or adult) from the activities if rules are not obeyed. We have developed this rotation schedule over several years and have found it the best way to ensure every child gets to participate in every activity without overwhelming chaos. Please stay in your rotation unless otherwise instructed by Eric or Amanda.
Students will also be given a bottle of water upon completing the maze. These are handed out by class only.
Climate controlled restrooms are located behind the lunch area, next to Barnyard Ball. They are handicap accessible.
Lunch is available for order. Adults MUST place lunch orders upon arrival or no lunch food will be prepared. General concessions (snacks and drinks) are available without pre-order.
