Field Trip Information



A farm exhibit

A farm exhibit

All groups interested in a field trip please call for reservations.  Groups must have a minimum of 20 or close to 20, over the age of 3 years old.

School trips take place on weekdays throughout October between 9am-2pm

This very organized, educational program usually lasts two hours for the tour/stations plus additional time for lunch or snacks (ask for availability of picnic tables).  The length of the program can be altered for groups that require less than 2 hours and are not staying to eat.

The two hour program consists of 5 educational stations:  Farm animal talk, Hayride to the pumpkin patch, Interactive Movie, Farm chores, and a story (pumpkin magnet decorating). 

A Russell Farms educational video and group discussion, along with interactive farm stations, not only educates each child on how several crops on a farm are grown, or teach the responsibility that is required when owning farm animals and managing crops in a field, but he/she will also experience, first hand, several of the important chores on a farm, and enjoy every minute of it! Children of all ages will have a blast and remember this exhibit for a long time! (This program meets the qualifications under Indiana's Academic Standards!)

Many retired teachers have joined the family over the years to ensure that each field trip is everything that teachers, chaperones and students, could ever want in and enjoy in a field trip!  We are very proud of this entire program and assure that you will be very happy with all that the students learn while having fun on a real working farm!

Make arrangements early.  The days book fast!
