The Farmer For The Day Tour gives children the experience of a day in the life of a farmer. Our purpose
of this tour is to enhance a child’s understanding of the hard work and dedication it takes to be a farmer.
Participates will “work” around the farm experiencing various interactive learning stations. From each
station, participants will gather products and eventually “sell” them at our farmer market where they will
earn a Patterson Farm Buck that is redeemable for ice cream or water from our market. This tour follows
the Core Curriculum and will last approximately one hour.
