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 “fly” to our bee observation hive and get the buzz on our farm pollinator. This tour will discuss the importance of honey bees and beekeeping, including equipment, hive components,  what it takes to be a beekeeper, the bee life cycle and roles of bees.

 

 

Where:

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.

 

What’s Included:

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 honey as part of their virtual field trip experience.
