In the fall, you have many options to customize your tour for your class. You start with the basic barnyard tour, which includes visiting all the animals, going through the prairie trail maze and having fun at fort hay bale. The basic tour takes 90 minutes.
Additional activities include a trip to the pumpkin patch to pick out a pumpkin, an orchard tour to learn about how apples grow and apples to take home, a hayride and a trip to the observation bee hive to see the bees in action and get a honey stick. Each activity adds 15-20 minutes to your total tour time.
You can mix and match these activities to fit your needs.
Tours may be scheduled to begin between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Please be sure to allow for travel time. Fall tours take approximately 90 minutes.
Our basic fee is $4.00 per person, with a minimum of 20 paying guests (teachers and school employees are free). All parents and siblings over age two will be asked to pay admission. Add $1.50 to add the pumpkin patch activity-(includes a small pumpkin) to your basic tour. To add the Apple Orchard Tour, a Hayride, or the Bee Hive Tour, add $1 for each additional activity.
Groups are welcome to use our picnic area. We have many picnic tables, and will lay out tarps if all the tables are taken. Please let us know if your group intends to stay for lunch.
School tours are available for groups of 20 or more, Monday through Friday only. Tours are charged applicable sales tax unless we receive a copy of your tax exempt certificate.
