One of our favorite activities is hosting school groups for an educational farm experience. We will teach you about raising strawberries, allow you to pick berries to take home, and show you around the farm riding in a wagon pulled by a farm tractor.

Our objective is to inform and entertain. We encourage questions and hope to develop a lasting relationship with all participants.


When are Strawberry Farm Tours available?

The tours at Springs Farm will start approximately May 1 and run through May 31 each year. The tours are by reservation only and are offered Monday - Friday. Sessions begin at 9:00am and last approximately one and a half hours each. If rain or extremely wet conditions cancel your trip, you will be contacted to reschedule. It is recommended that you book your field trip early as space is limited.


What is included in a Strawberry Farm Tour?

  • The children are offered an age-appropriate lesson on how strawberries are grown - from the beginning of planting until the berry is picked.
  • The children are given a pint-sized container and are allowed to pick their very own strawberries to take home.
  • The group is taken on a wagon ride pulled by one of our farm tractors that last approximately 20 minutes.
  • At the end of the wagon ride, all participants are given a strawberry coloring book (Only included on school field trips). 
  • The field trip will last approximately an hour and a half, depending on the size of your group.
  • You will have the opportunity to stay our and eat your bagged lunches in our fields for as long as you like.


How much does the Strawberry Farm Tour Cost?

The cost of a field trip is $8.00 per student. Teachers and chaperones will be free of charge for the farm activities. If adults choose to pick berries, they will be charged $2.25 per pound. This usually averages to about $12.00-$13.00 per gallon.
