Spring Field Trips 2018
We begin booking Spring Field Trips on February 1st.  Spring field trips are held during the month of May.  You must have 20 or more in your group to schedule a spring field trip.  Field trips are fun and educational in nature.  Field trips are guided by our friendly farm staff through different rotations.  (FYI different from our fall field trips, barnyard activities are not setup for spring field trips)  

Spring Field Trip Rotations:
1. Learn about adult and baby animals
2. Take a hay ride
3. Butter making activity
4. Story-time
5. Seed planting activity

The spring field trip is $6.00 per person (child & adult), and lasts about 1 & 1/2  hours.

Since we are a working farm, children will also see the farm in our pre and mid planting phase, much different than in the fall when crops are mature and being harvested.

You must schedule groups at least 3 weeks ahead of the arrival date and time slots are limited.  During the spring 2017 field trip season all days were booked by April.  Please email us at AndelinFamilyFarm@gmail.com to schedule your field trip.
