Field Trips & On Farm Education Programs

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.

School & Home School Field Trips

Our educational field trips have been structured through the knowledge we have obtained of being a fifth-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. Field trips are for grades Pre-K through 12th grade.

Virtual Field Trips

As we all know, 2020 was a difficult year for everyone, especially for our local and tri-state schools. Since 2020, we have missed seeing students and the excitement they would bring with them when they would arrive and go about their fun-filled day on the farm.

Since COVID-19 stopped the personal hands-on learning these past couple of years and with the potential of some schools still limiting or restricting field trips once again this Fall, Harvestville Farm would like to, once again, share the farm experience with classrooms virtually for those schools who are unable to visit us in person. The following video was created to bring our educational “Talk Time” directly to students, along with a flyover tour of the farm.
