Guided tours

Our school tour programs are integrated with the Ontario Curriculum and are led by enthusiastic tour guides who are passionate about young minds, local food and agriculture. Together they will explore through hands on learning all the farm has to offer.

 

All tours include 3 fully-guided learning sessions that reinforce units taught at school. If you require special programming please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you needs. No matter where you are at in your unit, our programs will enhance your in-class experience. 

step 1. Pick your program

Subject to Seasonal Availability

Spring has Sprung & Bees are Buzzing!

Come and explore our farm using all of the 5 senses

We will be visiting some of our crop areas to see how they are starting to grow

Let's taste some of the early crops like asparagus and rhubarb out in the field and see how fresh and delicious they are!

A visit to our farm animals to find out how they grow and other fun facts about them. We will discover animals that may be living wild on the farm too

Just like a real farmer you will be planting a seed to bring home for your own garden!

Bursting with Berries!

Jump on the Wagon and come explore the farm!

We will visit the berry fields to see how they grow and taste them right from the plant. So much to learn about strawberries, raspberries and blueberries - delicious!

Our animals love it when you come for a visit. Discover how unique each of them are - just like you!

A is for Apple

The Niagara Escarpment is in full colour, and this is the perfect opportunity to learn about the life cycle of plants and how the animals are getting ready for winter

From the apple orchard to the beginning of our Great Pumpkin Challenge we explore all the fall crops (fall raspberries are delicious!)

The Straw Mountain Climb will round off the day

Squash, Gourds & Pumpkins too!

10' tall sunflowers and dahlias, as far as the eye can see, are the back drop for the thousands of pumpkins that are growing on the farm this season. From the tiniest to the massive show pumpkins, you will see them all here!

Each person will pick a Jack-Be-Little pumpkin form the field to bring home

Let's look at decorative corn and see how many colours we can see. Why do they grow like that? We will compare it to our sweet corn.

Run through the corn maze and visit the animals before they leave for a warmer barn.
