Field Trips

We love hands-on learning.

We are thrilled to offer fun and robust educational experiences at Shalom Farms! Our field trip programming is designed to connect to class content in a meaningful, hands-on and memorable way.

While our current curriculum is designed with the K-5th grade learner in mind, we are more than happy to host older students for field trips as well. In the past, middle and high school students have explored subjects ranging from soil science to social justice.

Let's learn together!

Field trips on the farm typically last about an hour and a half, and can be scheduled Monday – Thursday in April, May, June, September and October. While we offer field trips at both farm sites, multiple-classroom or full grade level trips can only be accommodated at our Powhatan farm. Teachers and students are welcome to have a picnic lunch on-site at the end of their visit.

Cost

Field trips are offered at a sliding scale of $0-$5 per student. Payments can be made by cash or check made out to “Shalom Farms.” Our office is happy to provide a receipt.
