Field Trips & Educational Farm Tours

Willow City Farm, located just 6 miles west of Veterans Parkway, offers educational tours for students from Kindergarten - Middle school.  We've had groups from home school classes, preschools, and Boys & Girls Club groups.  We can accommodate large or small groups!

While at the farm, students can meet and feed the calves, goats, lambs, sheep, horses, and alpaca, collect chicken eggs, and learn all about livestock and safety on a farm.

 

We have seasonal craft projects that include painting with baby chicks, planting seeds, or painting pumpkins.  Students can tour barns coops and even an outhouse that are over 100 years old and moved to the farm by draft horses.   We'll even discuss the historic carpentry used to build these buildings!

Field trips are available from March - November and can be reserved using our online reservation system.  All students must come with a signed waiver by a parent or guardian, and younger students will need chaperones.  Please use the form below to reserve your slot as they fill fast!
