Crescent Farms

During the spring, summer, and fall, your class trip can visit the hay fields to watch as bales of hay are harvested. This trip leaves the farm stand on a hay wagon pulled by a John Deere tractor. A tour guide will show and explain the equipment that is used to produce a bale of hay. Students will then watch the hay baler in action. Next, your class can go to the picnic area to eat their bagged lunches, while meeting some of the animals on the farm, including cows, goats, ducks, and sheep. In the fall, students can enjoy our challenging and exciting corn maze.
