School and Group Visits

We welcome visits from schools, clubs, organizations, and corporations!

We Love Visitors!

Who can visit?

Scout Troops, Home, Public, and Private Schools

We offer age-appropriate, multidisciplinary programs for students from 1st through 12th grades. Students learn about agriculture firsthand on a working farm, including everything from food cycles to soil science. Whether you’re part of a scout troop or a home, public, or private school, we accommodate your school’s pedagogy.

For programming geared to kindergarten and preschool students, please email Erin [@]

Gardening Groups, Clubs, Colleges, Corporations

We also offer tours and group experiences for clubs, college groups, and corporations! If you have specific topics or goals in mind for your, we are happy to work with you to ensure an unforgettable experience for your group.

With each school field trip and group tour we:

  • Introduce the concept of food systems.
  • Teach how food is grown, what makes a system sustainable, and the value of a healthy diet filled with locally grown meat and produce.
  • Show that it is possible—and advantageous—to grow food without chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or other artificial inputs.

Field trips are optionally TEKS relevant and geared toward your subject and larger curriculum.
