Field Trips

WE ARE SO EXCITED TO HOST FIELD TRIPS AGAIN DURING FALL 2021! MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS TODAY!

When are Field Trips? 

Field trips are available for school groups, October 12th through November 19th, Tuesdays – Fridays, 9 am – 2 pm. We are closed Mondays.

Homeschool families and groups are welcome to make a reservation on any day that we are open for field trips. We will no longer have designated Homeschool Days. 

Reservations required for all field trips! Please make reservations online to book your field trip. Call 361-287-2828 with any questions.

What’s Included on the Field Trip?

The Maze – Students are presented with “passports” that quiz them as they wander the paths and help them along to the exit. Teachers are provided with maps of the corn maze.

Hay Ride – Take a tractor-drawn ride around the farm. You will tour the farm and dairy and learn about milking cows and the dairy business. 

Play Area – This site includes two slides, barrel train, hay jump, corn cannon (each student gets 2 free shots), rat rollers, duck races, mini dairy barn, mini mazes, and 10 minutes on the Frog Hopper!

NEW FOR 2019 SEASON!!
We’ve partnered with Spookley the Square Pumpkin to promote bullying prevention!  Students can walk a short trail through the corn to discover Spookley’s story and answer anti-bullying discussion questions. Students will have an opportunity to take pictures with a giant inflatable Spookley and take the bullying prevention pledge.

News From the Farm

Farm Fresh Goodies

Our family operates a dairy farm too! At Four E Dairy, we bottle fresh unprocessed milk where the cream rises to the top. We also have Italian artisan cheeses and signature yogurt, both made with our milk, available for purchase on the farm. Be sure to bring a cooler with you when you visit the maze!
