School Farm Tours
Farm Tours at the River School Farm are a wonderful educational experience for students of all ages! Field trips to the farm provide hands on and visual learning that complements classroom curriculum. In addition to our standard tour, we can customize your tour and lead activities based on topics currently being covered in the classroom or on those of a particular interest. Sample activities include: chicken feeding, egg collection, seed planting, composting activities, and more. We will work with you to decide which activity would best be suited for your group.
School Group Tours: – 40 min tour or customized experience with tour and hands-on activities. Please give us a call to discuss details or book your school for a River School Farm Tour! Please keep in mind that your tour is scheduled to take place in an environment that is near rapid river currents, some uneven surfaces, stone steps, areas without lighting, etc. It is very important to be aware of your surroundings and use caution during your tour. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. To ensure safety of our guests, we require that at least 2 adult chaperones are required per every 12 students under the age of 12.
