Local, organic agriculture. Environmental education.

Visits to the Farm

We help teachers plant the seeds of education by providing a unique outdoor classroom that sprouts creativity.

Field trips offer students hands-on learning adventures that cannot be replicated in the classroom and are designed to provide an opportunity to learn sustainable farming practices including composting, seed saving, crop rotation and growing healthy vegetables without synthetic herbicides or pesticides.

  • We host field trips for pre-k to high school.
  • Field trips align with school curriculum and state standards in science, history, social studies and language arts.
  • Teachers can customize field trips to coincide with classroom lessons, project-based learning and standardized tests.
  • Field trips can be tailored to fit the learning objectives of any grade and classroom subject including: life cycle of plants & insects, soil biology and chemistry, botany, water cycle, history of farming in the area, ecological systems, role of animals in farming, environmental science, health & nutrition.

Visits to Holly Hill Farm can be 1-1/2 hours or an entire school day including lunch on the Farm. Groups of up to 60 students can be accommodated guided by Farm Educators trained to maximize the outdoor classroom experience.
