Field Trips 2016For a fun and interactive learning experience plan your October field trip to Maris Farms!  A mix of agricultural learning and lots of outdoor action create the perfect out-of-the classroom learning experience for any age.

A Maris Farms guided field trip provides an opportunity for your students to learn about farm activities and products relating to science, geography and math with lots of active outdoor fun. By reservation only! Select weekdays (see calendar) 9 am – 1 pm, subject to availability; minimum 10 students required for reservation (see option below for small groups).

Guided Field Trip Itinerary

Our October field trips highlight interactive activities around the farm. Your visit will include the field trip corn maze, interaction and education at our bee-hive station and trout pond, a hayride, cow train ride, a visit with our farm animals, a trip to the pumpkin patch for a small pumpkin, playtime in the barnyard playground, and more learning experiences on the farm. Our guided field trip takes 2 hours and 15 minutes and are scheduled on select weekdays between 9-1 pm.

Guided field trip pricing is $8 per child (2 and up), adults $4 (no pumpkin), teaching staff and 1 adult for 5 paid students complimentary. Field trip admission includes staff-led rotations to the above listed stations and each child receives a free general admission to return during regular business hours. Additional pumpkins may be purchased separately. The farm opens to the public at 1 PM on weekdays. Purchase of a weekday activity bracelet is required if field trip attendees choose to stay after their guided field trip concludes.

Small-Group or Self-Guided Option

An option for groups with less than 10 students, or groups that would prefer a less structured or more play experience at Maris Farms can take advantage of our regular weekday activities offered from 1-6 PM Monday-Friday. With this option we provide an educational scavenger hunt activity (upon request) to help your group experience a self-guided tour of all the field trip stations at your own pace, and then play on all the additional activities offered with the weekday admission. Groups of 10 or more paying in a single transaction will receive $1 off the regular full priced weekday admission of $8 (ages 3 & up) (sorry, no discounts on $6 Tuesdays). Pumpkins sold separately. Reservation requested but not required.

Covered areas are available for snacks or lunches, though seating may be on the ground or on hay bales. Full concessions may not be available at the time of your trip.
