The Farmer For The Day Tour gives children the experience of a day in the life of a farmer. The purpose of this tour is to enhance a child’s understanding of the hard work and dedication it takes to be a farmer. Participants 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:

  • Barn Theater featuring “The Dirt on Dirt DVD”
  • Interactive Learning Stations
    • The Barnyard: Animal Life
    • Insect Garden (Friend or Foe)
    • The Bee Barn: Pollination
    • The Vegetable Garden
    • The Apple Orchard
    • The Dairy Barn/The Chicken Coop
    • The Planting Shed: Parts of a Plant
    • The Farmers Market: Participants “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 Tour activities to reinforce your activities.

All tours include access to Pawpaw Carl’s Playground and Picnic Area. Participants are welcome prior to or after their tour.
