Fall Field Trips at Snipes Farm
We offer a variety of field trip options for students grades pre-k through 12th grade. All of our lessons meet NGSS and PA Science standards. For a complete list of the standards each of our farm lessons meet, click here for the PA Standards and click here for NJ/NGSS.
Each farm tour includes a hayride around the Farm, and each student takes home a small pumpkin, an apple and a farm coloring page. Farm lessons have the most impact when paired with a pre-lesson in your classroom prior to your field trip to get the students ready and excited to learn on the farm. Groups are invited to bring lunch and enjoy time in our playground.
We offer two affordable field trip models:
90-minute tour: $8 per person
3-hour tour: $12 per person

Fall Fun & Farm Tour
Explore the farm on a beautiful autumn day and meet our bunnies and chickens. Visit the Children's Garden and explore green and growing things. Learn about seeds and soil and how farmers grow food. Learn about horse power and a child's life on the farm 100 years ago in our farm museum.
Take a hayride to the orchard to learn about how apples grow and "feed" (mulch) the trees. Learn about the life and important work of the bees and visit amazing growing fields. Explore the nature trail on the way to the playground.
Corn Maze Adventure
The adventure begins with a hayride around the farm and is followed by a fun scavenger hunt in teams in a giant corn maze. Participants search for 18 stations hidden in the corn, which hold the answers to fascinating questions about forests found on their game card.
