Hickory Ridge Farm

Join Farmer John and Ms. Robin over at Hickory Ridge Farm for a day of farm fun. The family-owned and operated farm features strawberry picking trips, where groups can get their very own straight from the patch. Farmer John or Ms. Robin will provide your students and scouts with lessons on the crops that are grown at the farm, the farm's animals, farm life, and growing strawberries. They can also feed the animals, make a craft, and take a hayride around the 19-acre working farm. Pumpkin picking field trips are also available, when in season.
