Arcadia Farm Field Trips

Hands-on educational, COVID safe, experiences for children to explore the farm-to-table process!

During the fall of 2020, Arcadia's Farm Education staff implemented COVID protocols in order to host in-person, small group visits to the farm. We plan to continue these engaging and interactive visits this spring and early summer while following current COVID guidelines!

We are excited to be able to offer small group visits to homeschool groups, learning pods, and other folks interested in agriculture. Our small group visits are meant for groups up to 20 visitors or less.

These visits look a little differently than regular field trips, but still provide hands-on learning experiences!

The 90-minute visits consist of a socially distanced sensory tour of our educational space, a short hike to Dogue Farm, our main production space, to observe our busy farmers, and the opportunity to participate in some light garden tasks. Service-oriented projects are available for older groups that want to get their hands dirty.

Filling out the interest form is the first step in scheduling an Arcadia Farm Field Trip. After we receive your form, we will send you an email with more information and a field trip contract to sign. Your trip will NOT be confirmed until we receive your signed contract and your payment of $100.

We look forward to opening up our farm's gate to you in 2021!



For more information, please contact Ivy Mitchell at  After you fill out the online registration form, we will contact you to confirm the date and logistics of your field trip, discuss specific curriculum connections, and tailor the trip to your specific needs.  Space is limited. Reserve your trip TODAY!
