Customizable Field Trip Letter

Use this letter to send home with children so they are ready to go for Field Trip day!

The educational tour is approximately 1 hour in length.  The first portion of our tour is seated on bales of straw where the tour guide educates students on pumpkin varieties, corn, gourds and the pumpkin lifecycle.  The second portion of the tour is walking through the garden where students see plants in various growth stages including pumpkins, bottle gourds, sunflowers, corn, luffa sponges and more.  The "Corn Room" is a place where students learn about the uses of corn and see the evolution of how corn is processed and even get to use an old-fashioned corn grinder!  Each child gets an opportunity to milk a "cow" and learn about how milk gets processed.  And of course, the tour is not complete without a visit to see our animals.  The tour concludes with everyone picking a child-size pumpkin of their very own to take home.

It is with profound sadness that we have made the difficult decision to cancel our Fall/October Pumpkin Farm class field trips for 2020.  Due to the pandemic, this has become necessary to ensure the safety of our visitors, their families, our staff, and the public health of our community at large.

We will greatly miss seeing you this October.  Stay tuned for some online resources that we are putting together that you will be able to use in your classroom.  Thank you so much for your loyalty over these many years and we look forward to when we can see you again.  We wish you safety and well-being during this time.
