March Farm

March Farm is a popular Pick-Your-Own farm with acres of blueberry, strawberry, peaches to pick in the spring and apple orchards in the fall. It offers wonderful international and local educational experiences such as the Animal Yard, a free activity for students to learn about farm animals. Students will learn how the farm participates with Heifer International and has adopted goats, sheep and cow from Nigeria to raise funds for families and farms abroad. In addition to hiking trails and seasonal hayrides, the Hayloft Playscape, is a place where students can play in hay bales, build in a sand area, and drive around a 450 foot track with tricycles, pedals and wagons through October.
