Embrace nature– Enjoy time outdoors here on our 50 acre working fruit and vegetable farm.  Relax and connect with your students in new and creative ways as they explore the natural world around them.

Re-energize as our farm instructors engage you and your children on a fully guided tour.

Looking for an alternative now that Whittamore”s Farm is closed.  A diversity of learning opportunities present in the outdoor environment can be found on our farm.    Our school tour programs include a mix of inquiry based activities that are adapted to your children’s age and comprehension level.  We emphasize learning through doing and we’ll keep them as busy as bees.

Rain and Bad Weather

Most of our tour activities are outdoors and take place regardless of the weather. We adjust our activities in the event of bad weather and have some indoor and sheltered areas for lunch and activities.

In all seasons, our farm is usually cooler and windier due to the open fields and lack of pavement. Please have your students dress appropriately for the weather.
