Farm field trips introduce students to the importance of agriculture in our world. At Southern Belle Farm, we make this learning experience fun for students and teachers — in a 330-acre outdoor classroom, with farm equipment, crops, animals and more!
Summer farm field trips are hosted by reservation only for a limited time in early June. We have completed field trips for the 2017 summer season.
Students, chaperones and visitors $8 each. Teachers and aides are free with school ID. A minimum of 20 reservations are required to book. We require a non-refundable deposit of $50 to confirm your reservation.
Learning is fun!
When students arrive at the farm for a Spring field trip, they will be divided into tour groups by class. Each group will rotate between these farm learning activities:
- Learning about blackberries or blueberries, depending on availability
- Visiting the Berry Patch to pick a container of berries for eating or to take home!
- Milking demonstration in the dairy barn
- Honeybee Demonstration
- Taking a hayride tour of the farm
- Visiting Belle’s Barn to meet our farm animals
- Fun on the jumping pillow
Have a picnic on the farm! Field trip groups are welcome to bring a sack lunch. Picnic tables are available under our covered pavilions. There are restroom and hand washing facilities available.
Just a reminder … We are a working farm. Visitors who may have allergies to any farm products or plants/insects that might be on the farm will be visiting under their own recognizance.
