School Tours

The fall season is upon us and it’s time to enjoy a fun learning experience at the farm! This packet contains all the information you’ll need to know to ensure that your group has an unforgettable experience. Our goal is to provide a safe, educational, and fun experience for all our guests. Even if you have been here before, please see the helpful hints page to help your visit run smoothly. Most of our tours take 1½ – 2 hours depending on how long your group chooses to stay in the Fun on the Farm Barn, Pumpkin Lane, and Petting Farm.

Each year thousands of students enjoy Gull Meadow Farms with their class. We have worked very hard to make our farm a fun and educational experience for everyone. Do your students know that peanuts, potatoes, and carrots are grown underground? How different does an 80 year old tractor look from tractors that are made today? Does a pumpkin float, if so, why? These are just some of the things your students will know by the time their tour ends. Still have questions? Give us a call today so we can answer them or get your group signed up to join us this fall.
