Browse through our tabs below to learn more about our educational school tour and registration.
This year's tour will feature a renewed emphasize on required classroom curriculum. Our tour begins with greetings from one of the resident Scarecrows, who will teach the class about how pumpkins are grown on the farm. It's all about hard work, patience, good weather, picking the right seeds, and a little bit of luck!
Our resident farmer also introduces the group to various gourds, squash, and varieties of pumpkins, and the students find out that not all pumpkins are orange and round.
The class is will ride out into the Pumpkin Fields in our safe-sided haywagon, where each child will be invited to pick their own pumpkin to keep and take home.
After that, they may head to our Pumpkin Patch Activities, which are listed on the next tab.
School groups are welcome to bring your own sack lunches and refreshments.
Note: Education stations for self-guided school tours and for school teachers are provided featuring 7 stations with a map and signage! Each Education Station is optimized to help teachers and self-guided tours further educate their students about the farm. (see "Self-Guided Tours" tab)
Our farm is located only 30 minutes northeast of Wichita or 10 miles north of El Dorado on Highway 77.
Admission is $7.00 per person, including students, siblings, and chaperones.
Teachers and others employed by the school district are admitted free with the class.
