Frequently Asked Field Trip Questions
How large of a group do I need?
Field Trips are for groups of 15 or more and require 48 hours advance reservations.
Do the kids get to ride on the barrel train?
The barrel train is not included in the field trip rate. However, you may purchase a ticket for $1.00 per person per ride at the ticket booth. This applies to fall field trips only and is not available as an option in the spring.
Do the kids get to ride the pedal karts?
The pedal karts are not included in the field trip rate. However, you may purchase a ticket for $1.00 per person per ride at the ticket booth. This applies to fall field trips only and is not available as an option in the spring.
Do the parents have to pay?
YES all parents, siblings (2 & older) and chaperones must pay. All school staff may enter free with current school ID.
I am bringing my toddler on a field trip. Do I have to pay for them?
All children age 2 and older must pay for a field trip.
Can I come for a field trip on Saturday?
No, field trips are available by reservation only Monday – Friday 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Can we bring our own lunch?
Field trips are welcome to bring their own lunch. Let our staff know and we will help you get it to the right place!
Do you have a place for us to purchase food?
Yes, during Fall Festival we also have our concessions stand open. In the spring and summer we do not offer any food options.
Are dogs allowed on the farm?
No, dogs are not allowed on the farm except service animals.
Does everyone get a pumpkin?
Yes, all paying members for the pumpkin patch or combo field trip will receive one small pumpkin to take home. If you want a larger one you must pay for it.
Does the bus driver have to pay?
No, bus drivers do not have to pay. Any bus driver not participating in a fall field trip will be given a coupon for a free drink in the concessions area to enjoy while waiting for their group. During the spring and summer months we do not have our concessions stand open. The closest option for food is the truck stop on Highway 52 and I-25.
Can parents pay separately upon arrival?
Yes, but keep in mind that they may have to stand in line. This could delay your group’s start time if they do not arrive early enough.
What happens if the weather is bad?
We never want to be closed, but fall weather can bring rain or snow. The parking lot and yard are dirt so wet weather can create mud which can be unsafe for customers and staff. If we decide to close, we will contact you right away and attempt to reschedule. We will also post weather updates in our Twitter feed, here on our website, and on our Facebook page.
I see you have a new booking calendar. What do the numbers next to the time slots mean?
We allow two schools/classes to book in each 15 minute time slot. This time slot is for when your field trip class time will start. The numbers 1 or 2 tell you how many classes/schools are still able to book for that time slot. If it says Full there is no more availability for that time slot.
