Field Trips

Reservations CLICK HERE

On any given morning at Pinehaven Farm, you’ll see the sights and hear the sounds of children laughing, learning and playing. Offering educational field trips to pre-school and elementary age students has long been a priority for us at Pinehaven Farm. Owning a family owned farm, we believe it’s important that the heritage and dynamics of agriculture is something that all children have the chance to be exposed to. It just so happens that we’re able to help accomplish that goal in a fun and unique way. We invite you to bring your students to come get lost in our classroom on the farm!
