FarmWise offers both day trips and overnight camping experiences.
The daily schedule is as follows: In the morning, the children will do at least 3 farm activities. These could be animal care, gardening, harvesting, field work (such as cutting thistles, loading hay, or putting up fences), cooking, preserving up food, or any other farm related activity that needs doing. The idea is that the children get a sense of what it takes to run this farm. They will make it their own this way and thus when they leave, they feel that they own a little of the place!
Day trips are $25 pr. child ($27 pr. child after if paid less than a week before visit) and a minimum of $200 per group, however small. An agreed upon deposit (10-15% of total, usually), refundable if cancelled more than 60 days in advance of visit, is required to hold the place.
Overnight trips are $62 pr. child for every 24 hours they are on the farm ($67 pr. child if paid less than a week before visit). There is an eight child minimum for overnights as far as price is concerned. An agreed upon deposit (10-15% of total, usually), refundable if cancelled more than 60 days in advance of visit, is required to hold the place. If a child gets sick and needs to cancel 50% of the cost of their visit will be refunded (eight children must be left).
Do you want your class to have real-life memories of milking a cow and digging in the dirt?
Do you want your kids to relate to where their food comes from?
