Please read before contacting us:

By reservation only. Field trip slots fill up quickly so contact us as soon as possible.

Field trips are on weekdays only.

The cost is $7 per person regardless of age. For example, a strawberry picking group of 80 children, 15 parents, and 5 teachers is 100 people and would be charged $700. Of course, all 100 people would be allowed to pick.

The minimum group size is 20. Groups under 20 people will still be charged for 20 people.

You will be charged by how many people we count on the day of the field trip. So if you made a reservation for 100 people but 5 couldn't make it, don't worry, we will only charge you for 95 people. However, if you make a reservation for 100 people and you bring 105 people, you will be charged for 105.

You cannot bring extra people along for a free hayride.

Teachers, when planning to pay for your trip, please collect all money in advance.

Payment will be made in the farm market, right after the field trip, before you leave the farm.

Picking will be done in the containers we provide you. Our field trips are not an all you can pick buffet.

We suggest bringing markers to write names on picking containers and pumpkins.

We do not offer field trips on the following holidays: Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day.

If taking a school bus, please avoid Montevideo Road, which is a common way to get from River Road to Sugarland Road (where the farm is).  Montevideo Road has a single lane bridge that cannot accommodate school buses.
