School Field Trips


Elementary Schools, Preschools and Daycares

Busy Barns Adventure Farm tours offer a hands-on learning environment where children play and learn in an outdoor classroom. Your students will gain an appreciation for Agriculture as they explore the farm and enjoy encounters with our animals.  Children will receive lots of exercise interacting with the unique agricultural activities spread across the farm. The children will receive animal feed, a make-n-take activity in the Spring, and a kid-sized pumpkin in the Fall, along with many great memories!

Our Programs 
Our field trips are self-guided allowing you to decide where, when, and how long you spend at each of the over-40-farm-activities. The only scheduled tour component for preschools and daycares is the hayride.

The K-5th grade farm tours will have a scheduled hayride, plus receive a 30-minute structured educational program that is tied to our curriculum, Wisconsin Pumpkin Farms. The lesson is taught in the Little Barn by an on-farm teacher. Our tours are designed to meet the state of Wisconsin educational standards.
