Patterson Farm Market & Tours staff have been working extremely hard to develop a virtual field trip program to best recreate the experience of an onsite field trip to the farm. Our goal is to always educate students on the importance of agriculture education and how essential the agriculture industry and its workers are to the community. Students will virtually visit our strawberry patch and farm. This tour will teach children all there is to know about strawberries including the strawberry life cycle, how we grow strawberries, and do a hands-on activitity. This tour will also include a virtual wagon ride around our farm and a trip to the barn to learn about some of our barnyard friends.
Led by the Patterson Farm Staff, virtual tours can either be held in class OR at home when students are completing one of their virtual learning days outside of the classroom.
How it Works:
Teachers will need to book a tour date and time just like any other traditional field trip. Teachers will also schedule a time prior to the tour for materials to be delivered to the school for distribution to students. Materials are delivered at no charge for a 25 mile radius. There is a delivery fee for beyond 25 miles.
The virtual tour includes approximately 60+ minutes of pre-recorded videos including a hands on activity. The materials for this tour will be delivered to your school, prepackaged and ready for your students, prior to your virtual tour. Students will also get a Fun Farm Take Away and a pint of strawberries * as part of their virtual field trip experience.

- Official Welcome to our Farm
