SCHOOL FIELD TRIPS During the field trips, the children get the opportunity to pet and feed different types of animals and to go on a hayride to the pumpkin patch. In the fall, the children and chaperones pick their own pumpkins to take home. Children may feed grain to the sheep, goats and the llama. They also have a chance to pet the sheep and goats. The children also visit with our rabbits. While on the hayride to the pumpkin patch the children will see the horses and cattle grazing in the fields and ducks/geese on the ponds. From a safe distance they can see beehives where our honeybees live and work to help us make pumpkins. These bees pollinate the crops and provide us with honey. The beekeeper will give a honeybee talk and show your group all of his equipment and how to start a hive and how to care for the hive. Children also visit with our calves and baby bunnies and lambs. Handwashing facilities are provided near the petting barn.
