The Kenyon Farm welcomes visitors, volunteers, and field trips.
There are risks to visiting and volunteering at any farm. All volunteers, visitors and field trip participants must fill out a Liability Waiver prior to visting the farm.
Our field trips offer a variety of hands-on learning experiences for school and other groups which are generally lead by our Student Farmers. We emphasize a “field to fork” full circle understanding of food production and strive to share an ethic of environmental stewardship, which is exemplified in our sustainable and permaculture based farming practices.
Field trip activities vary according to season and can be tailored to students’ age group. Other possible activities for your group include plant propagation, farm animal care, composting, organic pest control, direct to consumer business models, as well as an exploration of how and why things are grown using sustainable practices. We welcome input from teachers on how to integrate field trip activities with their students’ curricula, and so will gladly customize your field trip to suit your needs.
Field trips are typically 1 hour in length and your group is invited to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy at the farm following the event.
We offer field trips to schools and other groups from April through October (maximum of 36 students/children in any one group please). Recommended donation for farm field trips is $2-5 per student. We will also gladly accept more generous contributions that will go to maintaining this program for future visitors.
PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR DOG TO THE FARM!
Dogs and other pets are strictly prohibited. For the safety of our staff, livestock, plants, and vistors, we kindly ask that you leave your animals at home. If you need your service dog to accompany you to our site, please contact us in advance and have your service dog clearly marked. We will do our best to prepare for your animal’s visit and accommodate your needs for a service animal.
