FUN AND EDUCATIONAL
Thank you for planning a Field Trip to Alpha & Omega Corn Maze this fall. Field Trips can be customized to fit the needs of any group (size or age). The tours are a great outing for the kids to learn about farm life while enjoying some good old fashioned fun and entertainment. Getting out to the farm is all educational in some form or fashion, this year’s rotation will include a station that will be strictly education. The educational portion of the trip will be dependent upon the age of the students.
FIELD TRIP INCLUDES:
Hayride – Enjoy a ride around our farm and maze. Our hayride is pulled by a tractor and has sides. The class will take the hayride to Animal Acres.
Animal Acres – Visit animal acres, where you will have a chance to visit and feed the animals. You may see the following animals: alpacas, miniature horses, donkey, rabbits, goats, milk cow, sheep and pigs. Please keep in mind that at Animal Acres we do not allow guests to touch the animals as a safety precaution.
Alpha & Omega Outdoor Classroom – Learn about growing and harvesting crops. You will also learn about different ways that foods are grown. Children will learn more about the maze and how it is designed and cut.
Maze – Test your skills as you experience the 6 acre maze. In any of the mazes, an adult must accompany all children. The maze is available for each field trip.
Other activities included – barrel train, hay bale maze, corn box, bounce pillow, bounce house (for our smaller visitors), see saws, pipe world/ sand area and new for this year – Tug of War!
