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.

Tour Includes:
• Barnyard Theater with DVD Presentation
• Interactive Learning Stations
o The Barnyard- Animal Life
o Insect Garden (Friend or Foe)
o The Bee Barn- Pollination
o The Vegetable Garden
o The Apple Orchard
o The Dairy Barn/The Chicken Coop
o The Planting Shed- Parts of a Plant
o Compost, Trash, or Recycle
o The Farmers Market- Participates “sell” the products they gathered while “working” on the farm, and will earn a Patterson Farm Buck that is redeemable for ice cream or water from our market.
• Farm Fun take away to reinforce lessons learned
• Just For Teachers: Pre and Post activities to reinforce tour activities.

*All tours include access to Pappaw Carl’s Playground and Picnic Area for participates to enjoy before or
after their tour.
