Spring & Summer Field Trips

Planting Smiles Field Trip

Planting Smiles 2022 Has Been Cancelled
Anderson Farms has some big renovations planned this summer and will be unable to offer the Planting Smiles Field Trip.  Fall Field Trips will return late September 2022.  We can’t wait to show you what’s coming next!

A Lot of Fun!

Without seeds we would not be able to grow any farm products. During the tour students learn about the life of a plant from seed to maturity. Students tour the farm, see how seeds get started, and then plant Big Smiles – a sunflower variety that grows one to two feet tall. Each student takes home a potted seed. Along the way students will also get to meet some of Anderson Farms’ favorite animal friends, including our 20 pygmy goats. Expect to get your hands dirty!

Attention Teachers

Credit card information is required at the time of the reservation in order to HOLD the field trip date and time. The reserving credit card will only be charged in the event of a NO-SHOW or cancellation. When you cancel a field trip it leaves a vacancy in our schedule that cannot be filled at late notice. If you cancel one date and reschedule for another date this season, there is no penalty. Field trips cancelled and not rescheduled with 24 hours notice or no-shows, will be billed at $100 per group scheduled.
