Stuff you need to know!
All field trip reservations must be made in advance online
Available activities will depend on the time of year your group visits. Additionally, we are not open to the general public during field trips, so not all activities will be accessible.
Field Trip Activities Include:
The Dig, Educational Hayride, Hay Play & Jump barn, Marshmallow Roasting (Fall & Christmas only), Color Maze, Triple Decker Tree Fort with slides, Swings, Jumping Pillow, Balancing Labyrinth, Wooden Maze, 100 ft Super Chute Slide, Little Farmer Acres, Latvian group swing, Up & Over hedge maze, In & Out hedge maze, Farm Animals. Remember, this is a hands on experience on a real working farm!
Food & Drink:
School groups are encouraged to bring their own sack lunches for a picnic in our open-air barn or picnic pavillion. You’re also welcome to bring blankets and have a picnic out on the farm! New this year, we will have The Plate open with a limited menu of sandwiches, chips and drinks available for purchase.
Students will unload from buses, enter the farm and wait as a group, while the lead teacher will head to the Depot to pay for the entire group of students and chaperones with a school check or cash. At this time, all signed waivers will be turned in and wristbands distributed to the teacher for each paid chaperone/parent. Each class, along with teachers and parents, will then head to orientation for a brief review of Mainstay policies and reminders for a safe and fun visit. At the conclusion of orientation, classes are released to start learning and enjoying the farm!
