Elementary Schools, Preschools and Daycares
Busy Barns Adventure Farm tours offer a hands-on environment where children play and learn in an outdoor classroom. Children will receive lots of exercise interacting with the unique agricultural activities spread across the farm. The children receive animal feed, a make-n-take activity in the spring and a kid-sized pumpkin in the fall, along with many great memories!
Our field trips are self-guided allowing you to decide where, when and how long you spend at each of the over 25 farm activities. The only scheduled tour components for preschools and daycares is the hayride.
