Are you looking for a unique and educational field trip for your preschool or kindergarten class? Throughout the fall and spring seasons, East Hill Farm hosts preschool and kindergarten field trips where students learn about our farm animals, help the farmers, and enjoy a delicious lunch.
The day starts in the barn, where the kids meet the farmers and learn about all of our animals. The farmers take them on a barn tour, introducing them to our cows, goats, pigs, chickens, donkeys, and sheep. Many of the preschoolers especially love the pigs—maybe because they are often larger than they are! They can learn about milk production while milking Callie (cow) or Twilight (goat) and, in the spring, they meet many of our new kids and lambs.
In the fall, the kids go on a tractor-drawn wagon ride to the pumpkin pile, where they can each choose a pumpkin to take home. In the spring, each student will have a pony ride around the corral. . The students then love to explore the property while feeding the animals or helping the farmers collect chicken eggs.
Here are some of the student’s memories from past field trips.
