Patterson Farm Market & Tours Staff has 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 complete our corn maze with the help of a Patterson Farm staff member. Students will be asked questions via Zoom and if they get them correct they will be shown the correct direction to finished the maze. Participants will learn about the history of corn, modern day corn, the corn growth process, the parts of a corn plant, the history of corn mazes and so much more. Lastly students will also visit of barnyard and take a wagon ride around at the end of the tour.

 

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, activities including hands on. 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 small pie pumpkin* as part of their virtual field trip experience.
