At Whitaker Farms we take pride in educating the next generation of future farmers about the importance of agriculture in not only our community, but our world! From pollination to harvest, participants on our tours are bound to learn something about how agriculture affects their everyday lives! If your class is looking for an educational opportunity mixed with a whole lot of fun, then you are at the right place!
 
Our tours include a wagon ride around the working farm, a bountiful trip to the pumpkin patch or strawberry patch (depending on the season), a hands-on planting experience with a plant to take home, youth train ride, tractor crawl, barnyard visit to meet our farm friends, play area and so much more!  There are so many opportunities to link this firsthand experience to the classroom curriculum!
Large Play Area and Picnic Area available for booking groups located within easy reach of parking. Convenient for unpacking those delicious picnic lunches! Let us know what we can do to make your experience even more memorable this year at Whitaker Farms.​​
