Are you interested in visiting the farm with your class? From September through June, Stone Barns Center offers field trips for pre-K – 12th grade students. On your visit, explore and learn in a living classroom—our working farm. Our educators offer developmentally appropriate and engaging farm experiences that enrich classroom learning.
All field trips include:
- an introduction to a seasonal, regional diet
- an introduction to the principles of resilient agriculture
- an interaction with a member of the farm community
- a hands-on farming or tasting experience
