Educational Farm Field Trip

Support a local farmer and see where your food comes from.

Hedgebrook Farm circa 1906 has been educating the community for over 30 years. We offer an educational experience on a real working dairy farm. Our farm is Animal Welfare approved and also practices a number of environmentally safe farming practices.

The fieldtrip will cover various SOL skills plus it is a lot of fun! If you have a specific skill you are trying to support please let us know. One of our team members is a former elementary teacher so she can assist you with your planning.

NEW THIS YEAR: Hydroponic farming system. We are growing lettuces and other greens using fertilizer from the fish living in the water.

We offer two fieldtrip options this year.
