Fall Harvest Field Trips

Students and chaperones – $7.00 (includes a 5-12 lb pumpkin for each)
Teachers are free
Teacher gets one free pumpkin (up to 12 lb) for the class

As soon as the students get to the farm, the learning process begins! 
sqFlowerThe sights, smells and sounds of the farm surround them.  Hawes Farms has planted sunflowers, corn and winter squash — not to mention over 50 varieties of pumpkins and gourds.

The Fall Harvest Field Trips have been divided into age groups, as we believe that what is appropriate for an 8th grader would not be as effective for a preschooler. Check out the groupings below to match up with your student’s ages.

Schools are encouraged to make complete grade field trip reservations, such as, all kindergarten classes, all 1st grade classes, etc.

We can accommodate large groups on most days.

Each field trip includes:
Online curriculum materials for teachers, a visit to our farm animals, a farm hayride, time to burn off energy on the Barnyard Jump (jumping pillow), and a round of Duck Races.

Please note!
Students will get to choose from a variety of pumpkins, and can take home a 5-12 pound pumpkin of their choice.  A 12# pumpkin is about the size of a soccer ball. Please have students bring a plastic grocery bag to carry their pumpkins home.

Students will get to fire off the corn cannon, take a short tour of the corn maze, enjoy a farm hayride, and visit our farm animals.

During our tour, students are educated on the varieties of pumpkins grown, and they will pick their own pumpkin. They will learn how our cornfield maze was designed and created.

In addition, this field trip includes:
Online curriculum materials for teachers, an introduction to our racing pigs and playtime on the jumping pillow.

Please note!
Please have students bring a plastic grocery bag to carry their pumpkins home.

sqMaze• For 4th – 8th Grade

This is a field trip that students will remember!
These field trips can be custom tailored to fit your class needs.  One popular request from former teachers is for the children to walk through 1 phase of our giant corn maze.  This adventure will keep your students busy for 10 to 20 minutes!

Once in the maze each student will be given a ‘MAiZE Passport’ to help guide them through the paths of corn. At pivotal directional points in the maze students, will be asked an educational questions from the Passport. When answered correctly they are given hints to help them navigate through the maze.

In addition, this field trip includes:
Online curriculum materials for teachers, hayride, a ride on the Cow Train, visit with our racing pigs, playtime on the jumping pillow, and a round on the Pumpkin Cannon.

Please note:
As with the other age groups, each student will receive a pumpkin of their choice. Please have students bring a plastic grocery bag to carry their pumpkins home.
