Planning Your Field Trip

Group Visits

Before Your Visit

  • Allow your students to share any previous experience they may have of the farm
  • Plan your visit accordingly; know when your tour(s) and hayride(s) are
  • Allow for some extra time for a late bus, bathroom breaks, and a quick stretch

Arriving at Muscoot Farm

  • When you enter the parking lot, please direct the bus driver to drop off students at the main entrance and park in the back of the lot
  • If parents are driving, they may use the public parking area
  • Your group may assemble in front of the Reception Center while one teacher checks in at the Farm Office (second floor above the Reception Center)

While at the Farm

  • Please remember that the farm is a public place and as we ask all groups to be mindful of our other guests (i.e. no yelling, running, throwing, etc.)
  • Please be on time to your tour and hayride since we operate on a tight schedule and any delay greatly affects other groups
  • Groups are required to clean up after themselves, please leave the picnic areas as clean as you found them

Back in the Classroom

  • Upon returning to the classroom, encourage your students and chaperones to discuss their experiences
  • Connect their new knowledge of the farm to the lessons you are currently working on
  • Encourage your students to use their imagination and creativity through writing, drawing or playing, to describe their experience
