The children will enjoy a fun and educational field trip while visiting our real working farm! They will take a hayride, visit with our animals, and learn about “Spookley” the Square Pumpkin! Spookley is a unique pumpkin that delivers a special message of tolerance and kindness that is just right for October’s Bullying Prevention Month! After hearing Spookley’s story in our Agricultural Education Center, the children take a trip to the patch to *pick their very own pumpkin. The trip will end in the **lunch area with time for the children to visit the farm playground!
Children who take the bullying prevention pledge will receive a coloring book and a FREE General Admission Pass for a return visit to the farm to our weekend Fall Festival (a $12 value)!
